Ford has confirmed that it would be unveiling an all-new Fiesta on November 29, 2016. It is most likely to be available in the European markets by early-2017. The latest iteration of Ford Fiesta will dawn its seventh generation avatar.
A special ‘Go Further' event will be held in Cologne, Germany. Present at the launch will be Mark Field, President and CEO, Ford. Also, present at the all-new Fiesta unveil will be Jim Farley, President and Executive VP of Ford Europe.
So far, no technicals details have been revealed by Ford about its next-gen Fiesta. Ford officials have saved all the details for the launch event. They have only confirmed that next-gen Fiesta will be a more fun to drive vehicles that ever before.
In India, Ford had launched the Fiesta sedan, which did not garner much interest. At this moment, it is unclear if Ford India even considers bringing the next-gen Fiesta to the country. There is a void in the sedan category by Ford in the Indian market.
We believe Ford is better off bringing the Fiesta hatchback to Indian shores. If Ford India brings the Fiesta hatchback, it would compete with several premium hatchback models. Currently, the premium hatchback segment consists of Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Hyundai Elite i20, and Honda Jazz.
