2018 Ford Fiesta – Exterior
EXTERIOR DESIGN OVERVIEW
Express yourself in a Fiesta. Ford Fiesta is the small car that’s big on value, beginning with a wide selection of models: the entry-level S, the generously equipped SE, the luxury-level Titanium, all three available in stylish sedan and versatile hatch models. And we’re not done yet. There’s also the sporty 197-hp68 1.6L EcoBoost® -powered Fiesta ST hatch with unique trim and interior options, including race-inspired RECARO ® seats for the driving enthusiast. Once you’ve chosen the Fiesta that fits you best, you have a wide array of features, including 10 eye-catching colors, that leave you feeling cool, clever and confident.
SE APPEARANCE PACKAGE
The SE Appearance Package is a great way to enhance what is already a very stylish car. The package includes a body-color front bumper with chrome insert, rear spoiler, and 16-inch Sparkle Silver-painted aluminum wheels. And adding a generous measure of driving enjoyment are SYNC® 3 enhanced voice-recognition communications and entertainment system, SiriusXM® Radio and more.
STYLISH SEDAN AND VERSATILE HATCH
The Ford Fiesta offers a choice of two body styles – sedan and hatch – to match your lifestyle needs. The sedan has a trunk with 12.8 cu. ft. of capacity, and the 60/40 split rear seats can be folded to accommodate long items (like skis) through the trunk. Then comes the versatile hatch model with its wider hatch opening to handle larger cargo. It has 14.9 cu. ft. of rear space with the 60/40 split rear seat backs in the upright position, increasing to 25.4 cu. ft. when they’re lowered.
2018 Ford Fiesta – Interior
INTERIOR INNOVATION OVERVIEW
A refined car is judged by its craftsmanship, its attention to details. Inside Ford Fiesta you’ll find soft-touch materials, an intuitive center console, available ambient lighting and available painted metallic accents. If you like, you can equip Fiesta with available leather-trimmed seats for a feel of sporty car luxury.
ELECTRONIC AUTOMATIC TEMPERATURE CONTROL
With available electronic automatic temperature control, you just set the temperature you want and enjoy air-conditioned or heated comfort. Standard on Titanium and Fiesta ST. Included in the Cold Weather Package on SE.
INTELLIGENT ACCESS WITH PUSH-BUTTON START
With your key fob on you, the available Intelligent Access with push-button start lets you press the button on the door handle to open. Once you’re in, step on the brake pedal (or clutch for a manual transmission), press the power button and go.
2018 Ford Fiesta – Performance
Performance geared to your style of driving. Ford Fiesta offers two engines to suit your style of driving: the responsive 1.6L Ti-VCT I-4 (standard in Fiesta S, SE, Titanium) and the high-output turbocharged and direct-injected 1.6L Ti-VCT EcoBoost I-4 (standard in ST). Driving enthusiasts out there still love the unmistakably sporty feel of a manual – and Fiesta satisfies that preference in its S, SE and ST models. For those who prefer an automatic, Fiesta offers the PowerShift six-speed automatic with SelectShift® (optional in S and SE; standard in Titanium).
TORQUE VECTORING CONTROL
Once you’re into a curve, G-forces tend to transfer more traction to the outside tires than the inside ones. Standard Torque Vectoring Control enhances that by transferring torque to the wheels that have the most grip, reducing understeer and forcing the front end to hug the inside of the curve.
You have a lot of choices with the Ford Fiesta, especially with available engines. The 1.6L Ti-VCT (twin independent variable camshaft timing) I-4 engine is standard in S, SE and Titanium models. It’s engineered for responsive performance with its 120 horsepower and 112 lb.-ft. of torque. And the 1.6L EcoBoost® engine in the ST churns out a pin-you-in-your-seat 197 horsepower and 202 lb.-ft. of torque.
ADVANCETRAC® ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL (ESC)
Standard AdvanceTrac® automatically applies the brakes and modulates engine torque whenever it detects wheel slip. Working with AdvanceTrac® technology, the Anti-Lock Brake System helps maintain braking control under conditions such as ice, gravel or rain, providing confident stopping power.
SYNC® 3 AND SYNC APPLINK®
Available SYNC® 3 is our easy-to-use, responsive voice-activated technology. Discover the system’s quick reactions to your conversational voice commands. Experience the smartphone-like touchscreen with impressive responsiveness. You’ll also find a sleek user-friendly interface to help you connect to and control your smartphone. Locate your favorite restaurants with simple destination entry via the optional navigation. SYNC® 3 is fast, smart and easy to use. Meanwhile, SYNC AppLink® lets you use your voice to control some of your favorite compatible mobile apps while driving.
The Fiesta Euro-inspired front suspension is a lightweight, compact design ideally suited to the demands of tight, winding roads requiring maximum agility and stability. The suspension arms and stabilizer bar are connected to a front crossmember that is hard-mounted to the unibody structure, helping to isolate the body from the suspension system. Additional braces from the back of the crossmember to the body help enhance performance, while the stabilizer bar helps reduce body roll while cornering. The twist-beam rear axle is designed to reduce understeer.
ELECTRIC POWER-ASSISTED STEERING (EPAS)
Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) operates more efficiently than conventional steering, with an electric motor instead of a power-draining hydraulic pump. Its speed-sensitive technology adapts to changing conditions to improve maneuverability and handling. EPAS provides an easy, fluid feel to the wheel during low-speed maneuvers, which becomes firmer as speed increases. That’s not all. EPAS can offset pulling or drifting caused by steady crosswinds or crowned road surfaces and can also damp wheel vibrations.
MANUAL AND AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS
For those who appreciate the feel of sport and the control of a clutch-actuated manual transmission, the Fiesta S and SE models come with a five-speed manual while the high output Fiesta ST has a slick-shifting six-speed on the floor. But if automatic convenience is your preference, there’s the PowerShift six-speed with SelectShift®, optional in the S and SE; standard in the luxury Titanium. It delivers both excellent power and must-have performance, using its dual-clutch technology to produce continuous torque to the drive wheels. And it has a selectable mode that lets you shift gears manually but without the clutch.
2018 Ford Fiesta – Safety
Designed with a lot of forward thinking. A lot of forward thinking went into the design of the fun-to-drive Ford Fiesta, with features from the rear view camera and hill start assist technology (included as standard in every Fiesta) to the solid engineering that created the extensive occupant safety structure. Standard MyKey® lets owners set requirements or restrictions on certain features to help others drive more responsibly.
STANDARD REAR VIEW CAMERA
Get a clear picture of what’s behind your vehicle and see things you might otherwise miss. Shift into Reverse and slowly back up – the rear view camera automatically transmits the image to the display screen in the center stack.
COLD WEATHER PACKAGE
When the temperature drops, the Cold Weather Package has you covered. Features include heated first-row seats, heated exterior mirrors, and electronic automatic temperature control. Available on Fiesta SE; standard on Titanium.
High-strength boron steel strengthens critical safety zones in essentially a complex roll cage. A system of dual-stage driver airbags with roll-fold tech are designed alongside side-curtain airbags that help protect the head and chest in certain side collisions. Dual-stage driver and front-passenger airbags provide protection in the event of a moderate-to-severe frontal impact. The airbag will deploy at the lower (or first) stage or both stages (full force) depending on the severity of the collision.
HILL START ASSIST
While you’re on an uphill, hill start assist automatically activates and holds the brakes for two seconds after you release the brake pedal, giving you sufficient time to shift your foot to the accelerator and preventing the car from rolling back. You’ll find this feature especially helpful if your Fiesta is equipped with a manual transmission.
