THE revised Ford Fiesta, with detailed front and rear changes along with the latest engines from the stable, should be in showrooms now.
And it debuts a new system called MyKey which allows parents to limit top speed and the audio volume when young people are driving.
It is also available with a new emergency assistance function called SYNC which can alert local emergency services in any one of 26 languages.
And a device called Active City Stop is also available that can stop the car if an emergency is detected ahead at up to 10 miles an hour.
Finally, Ford has also put its latest and brilliant 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine into the small car where it will work best.
The full range of petrol engines is 1.0-litre 80, 100 or 125bhp, 60 and 80bhp 1.25-litre, and 105bhp 1.6-litre. Diesels are 1.5-litre 75bhp and 95bhp 1.6-litre.
All will have a leather rimmed steering wheel, alloy wheels and day running lights, plus a five inch LED display for major functions of aircon and sat nav (where fitted).
There are new seat fabrics and designs, with the option of high-quality leather or part leather, there’s improved storage around the cabin and all will get a digital radio/stereo. Some, but not all, will also have start/stop.
