Ford Fiesta Classic [2011-2012] Review
Fiesta comes with a contemporary automotive design that perfectly blends style along with solidity.Exterior
The front fascia of new fiesta is completely changed now. The new grille is placed lower and is shorter along with huge trapezoidal air dams and black inserts which give the front a very aggressive look. The new twin-pod headlamps with a circular arc kink look great. The new round fog lamps are placed high up in the bumper, right below the headlights further enhancing the frontal look. The new front-fascia on the Sxi with the chrome façade and dramatic crystal barrel headlamps is visually strong and expressive and elevates Fiesta's on-road presence.Interior
The interiors have been revamped too with a new instrument cluster and the top of the line S model gets soft leather seats and mahogany wood central console as standard. Fiesta has more spacious interiors than ikon and has a taller body shape. Head and legroom in front are comfortable and so is the sitting at the back sheets.
