3 Pointers You Need To Know About The 2018 Ford Fiesta

Ford Motor Company unveiled its new redesigned seventh-generation Ford Fiesta last Tuesday. The car is expected for a market launch in the United States by late next year.

There are no extensive details released yet about the new Fiesta as Ford is saving the remainder of the information for the sedan’s formal debut at the Geneva Auto Show in March. What we do know for now is that the new Fiesta will be available with a turbocharged inline-3 and cylinder deactivation in some markets.

1. “Evolutionary” Design

In terms of design, the new Fiesta has clearly evolved from the current model. It has a more upmarket look and feel, probably to compensate for the very basic looks of its predecessor. This is especially true for some models confirmed for the European market like the Vignale. Ford has also confirmed a soft-roader model called the Active while the sporty ST model is still in the works. Overall, the new car is slightly wider and more squat than the current Fiesta.

2. Elegant Interior

The interior is nothing to rave about, except for the fact that it’s a major improvement from the outgoing model. The dashboard used soft-touch materials for that sophisticated feel. In the middle, you can find a large touchscreen display for the Sync 3 infotainment system. Ford said the new Fiesta will even come packed with an available B&O PLAY sound system.

3. Cylinder Deactivation

As mentioned above, the car’s inline-3 will come with cylinder deactivation. This means that during low-load situations, the engine can “switch off” one of the three cylinders by stopping valve operation for that particular cylinder. Fuel delivery will stop, too. This ability can be done in just 14 milliseconds. It can turn the cylinder back on at the same amount of time. And because the car is also designed to counteract the vibrations, this switching on and off of the cylinder is imperceptible to the driver.

Fuel savings for the new Fiesta is pegged at around 6 percent.
