The popular Ford Fiesta is getting a brand-new look! The redesigned 2017 Fiesta was revealed by Ford, showcasing the new version in Cologne, Germany before an audience of over 4,000 onlookers. The new look adds a more modern, sporty flair to the Ford Fiesta, which has sold over 17 million units since it launched in the 70s.
The model shown in Germany will be built at the factory in Cologne, Ford representatives said, without mentioning when the vehicle will be making its U.S. debut.
Meanwhile, the 2017 Ford Fiesta with its new design will be available to European drivers as of next summer as part of an agreement with the German Works Council. The model will be available in four trim levels, called the Titanium, ST-Live, Vignale, and the Active, with the last being a crossover model. The 2017 Fiesta’s three-cylinder engine will be the first of its kind to offer cylinder deactivation for reduced emissions and better efficiency. Additionally, the interior will be more open and filled with modern tech.
The redesigned 2017 Fiesta will surely make its way stateside, thanks to the incredible popularity of the subcompact among millennial drivers. The addition of a crossover model to the lineup will also attract attention in the U.S., where the SUV and crossover segment is exploding in popularity for young families.
