Ford Fiesta - attractive and perfect, this car is ideal for a modern dynamic world.
From English, French and Spanish, the word "fiesta" is translated equally: "holiday". True, the current last Ford Fiesta externally especially festive emotions does not cause - in our four the car looks, perhaps, most strictly.
But for the sake of justice, we note: those looking for "fun" can be safely referred to the "three-door" - even in the sports version of the ST, this car was successfully blended into the image of the "rider".
The five-door hatchback looks heavier: because of the almost vertical tailgate, the roof seems slightly higher than the car's length of less than four meters.
Generally, design Ford Fiesta in many respects echoes the design of Fusion, but still does not leave the impression that before you - a bus in miniature.
Fiesta interior recalls the decoration of the entire carline of Ford, adjusted for the status and age of the model. The instrument panel without hints at the modest B-class - everything is symmetrical, strictly, functionally, and most importantly, it is not poor ...
I remember that our buyer did not particularly like the pre-styling Fiesta: a large number of options options and a solid interior (among other things) the manufacturer reinforced a very weighty price tag - the machine turned out to be more expensive Focus even in the initial configuration.
Now the situation has changed, but Fiesta has remained true to the bar stated in the style plan. AT Ford Fiesta it will be good for the driver and passengers - the salon does not shine in width, but the reserve overhead keeps decent.
It will be good and the load: the trunk Fiesta is the biggest of all four. Naturally, it can be increased - having spread out completely or in parts the back of the rear seat.
Attached to the Ford Fiesta at the traffic lights"Ten" with a hefty spoiler on the trunk lid, shiny disks and other naive attributes of "uncompromising sport" invocably snarled straight through. Running in the city? No, thank you, but just a few clutch-transmission-gas transitions were enough to get Fiesta avenged for the whole "baby" collected on our test.
Hundred horsepower under the hood for a little more than a ton of curbmass can create a small miracle - the car accelerates so readily and briskly that sometimes you wonder why your body is not fixed in a rigid "ladle" and your ears do not caress a specially tuned exhaust sound ... When the arrow of the tachometer comes close to the mark at 3500 rpm, the engine begins to insistently remind of its hard work.
Support acoustic comfort You can, more often working lever gearbox, but inmode of active driving with noise will have to reconcile. Suspension Fiesta perfectly proved during high-speed maneuvers: neither the swing, nor rolls the machine itself did not allow. The reverse side of the coin is a hard working off of the roughness of the roadway at low and medium speeds.
Ford Fiesta is good for those who appreciate in a small car cubic meters of useful internal space Along with the opportunity to "snap with a spark." And I'm ready to pay for this money, put on a car class higher.
"Fordovtsy" did their work on the "five" - the machine can boast not only convenient practical salon, but also incendiary motor (in version 1.6), and a well-tuned chassis. But any "holiday" turns out to be especially bright when it is a novelty, and the car clearly lingered on the conveyor. Well, we look forward to updates!
