2008 Ford Fiesta 5-door
The sixth generation of the Ford Fiesta Mark VII, was shown in concept form as the Ford Verve at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2007 and is currently marketed in principal European markets (including Germany) as well as Great Britain, Japan, Australia and the United States. It shares its platform (new Ford global B-car platform) with the Mazda 2.
Fiesta sales for Canada begin in March 2010 for model year 2011. The 5-door hatchback will also be sold in Mexico starting 2011.
Ford's Convers+ menu system, as seen on the Mondeo, S-MAX and Galaxy, and complemented by steering wheel button controls, will be available for the first time. Ford anticipates that over 85% of Fiesta orders will feature such a multifunction display. Also available for the first time will be keyless entry with 'Ford Power' starter button, reach and rake adjustable steering wheel, electric power steering, and a USB port for portable music players. Ford Easyfuel, the capless refueling system recently introduced with the Ford Mondeo, will also be a feature, while 'ambient lighting,' casting a soft red glow over the interior, will be an option. For the 2011 US market model, the Ford Sync in-car communications and entertainment system will be available as an option.
UK trim levels for the new Fiesta progress through Studio, Edge, ECONetic, Zetec, Zetec S, Titanium and Titanium Individual.
In 2008 Ford revealed details of an ECOnetic model, which Ford stated would emit 98g/km of carbon dioxide. The car was launched in 2009. It uses the 1.6 Duratorq TDCi engine, but with an added diesel particulate filter. The Fiesta ECOnetic achieves its environmental credentials through weight loss and aerodynamic adjustments, and its emission figure exempts the car from vehicle excise duty. The ECOnetic gets an estimated fuel consumption of 65 miles per US gallon (3.6 L/100 km; 78 mpg-imp). When tested on the highway mileage and emissions test schedules, on which hybrids are designed to perform well, the ECOnetic outperforms the Toyota Prius. The model will not be available in the United States because, as Business Week noted, the company "doesn't believe it could charge enough to make money on an imported ECOnetic" and doesn't think it would sell enough of the model (350,000/year) to justify the $350 million in upgrades required at their Mexico plant to manufacture it in North America.
