The new grille grants the hatch with a smart look and swept back headlights with a sharp cut has resulted in a distinct appeal. The taillights of the upcoming Fiesta Hatchback now features in the horizontal orientation which was vertical in the previous one. These extended lights have resulted in a wider stance of the car. There is no significant information about the 2018 Ford Fiesta specs but, it is likely that the brand will not come up with major changes under the hood. Most of markets are offered with Ford’s five times ‘Best Small Engine’ winner – 1.0-litre Ecoboost engine and it might be possible that the new 1.5-litre engine from the EcoBlue club may feature in the new 2018 Ford Fiesta. The only information that the officials have revealed is that the 2018 Ford Focus as well as seventh generation Fiesta will lose the dual-clutch transmission. This has been done because in the past few years, the company has lost its third-party quality ratings due to this and now the brand has kept quality on the top of its priority list.

The features that this fiesta will hold are still not revealed but there is no information about replacing the Ford’s latest SYNC unit, which is compatible to both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
