2009 Ford Fiesta five-door

After unveiling the three-door version few weeks ago, Ford today revealed the five-door version at the Geneva Motor Show. Taking much of its exterior and interior design from the striking Verve Concept, the next generation of Britain’s best-loved small car promises to shake up the supermini scene at its global premiere.

The new five-door model will appear in Hot Magenta. The dimensions of the three- and five- door models are the same. The visual impact of the five- door is stunning because the kinetic styling has not been compromised. Three- and five- door models are equally popular with British buyers. Full technical details and UK specifications will be released closer to the launch of the production model in autumn 2008.

New to the Fiesta range for European markets is the popular Ford Duratec 1.6-litre Ti-VCT engine. The 115 PS engine with variable intake cam timing, provides a well-balanced blend of performance and economy. It brings a 15 PS performance improvement over the outgoing Fiesta without a fuel consumption penalty.
