According to some recent rumors and information we have got, the fans will soon be able to see the upcoming Ford Fiesta as a 2019 Ford Fiesta USA model. However, it hasn’t been officially confirmed yet whether this model is going to hit the US market or just the European where this hatchback has been largely popular and one of the best-selling in its class.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Ford Fiesta, you shouldn’t expect any major changes and improvements. Instead, you will notice some slightly refreshed features and minor updates. The Fiesta will keep riding on the same platform as the outgoing model and wear quite the similar body features. The only change that could happen includes its bigger dimensions. Namely, the new Fiesta might appear wider, which will significantly improve its handling and stability. The upcoming model should also seem more aggressive than its predecessor, especially in higher and ST trim levels. The new Fiesta will probably be available in two body configurations – as a hatchback and a sedan with two and four doors. As we have already mentioned, it hasn’t been confirmed yet which of these will be offered in the US market, if the new Fiesta actually hits it.
Perhaps, more changes and improvements can be actually expected inside the 2019 Ford Fiesta. Some of the innovations include better soundproof and acoustic materials in order to reduce the outside noise and vibrations. Therefore, you will get a quieter cabin. Also, the cabin will be more spacious due to those larger dimensions that we have already mentioned. It has been said that things won’t get cramped even in the back seats. The interior of the new Fiesta will be more modern and better equipped that the one of its predecessor. Ford will pay special attention to materials, technology and safety. The driver will get a telescopic steering wheel and an 8.0-inch touch-screen in the center console with the latest infotainment system. Satellite radio, air conditioning, hands-free options and connectivity features are just some of those that you should expect. The new Fiesta will also include the advanced safety systems and driver assist features such as adaptive cruise control, airbags, forward collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, pedestrian detection and park assist.
The 2019 Ford Fiesta should keep using its current 1.6-liter four-cylinder as standard. Such an engine remains mated to a five-speed manual transmission and delivers the output of 119 horsepower. On the other hand, another engine choice and an optional six-speed automatic might be available as well. The choice includes a 1.0-liter three-cylinder that hits 138 horsepower, but the numbers haven’t been confirmed yet.
2019 Ford Fiesta USA Release Date and Price
The release date has been a mystery at the moment since Ford might discontinue the Ford Fiesta for the US market. If it actually appears, its price has been estimated to start around $14,000.
