Ford’s top selling Fiesta supermini range has been extended by the new Style series starting at £9,995; and the entry level Studio gets a £500 price cut to £9,495.
The new Ford Fiesta Style’s specification includes body coloured rear spoiler, front and rear bumpers, door handles and power heated door mirror housings. Electrically-operated front windows with ‘one shot’ up and down and anti-trap technology on driver’s side, driver’s seat height adjustment, remote control central double locking and CD player with remote audio controls and AUX sockets are also standard.
The Style also gets Electronic Stability Programme (ESP); Home Safe headlights; Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS); Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD); and front, side and knee airbags and anti-lock brakes.
The new model comes in at the same price as the entry level Studio, so they’ve cut the price of that trim level to £9,495 — down £500. The Studio misses the leccy windows, driver’s seat height adjustment, body couloured door mirrors and remote audio controls from what we can make out. The price revision brings the cheapest Fiesta in at least £500 below its rivals the Vauxhall Corsa, Renault Clio and Peugeot 207.
Five engines in the Fiesta line-up emit less than 130g/km of CO2 exempt from vehicle excise duty in their first year. This includes the 1.4 litre and 1.6 litre TDCi diesel engines, the 1.25 litre 60PS and 82PS petrol engines and the 1.6 litre TDCi 95PS ECOnetic engine which has CO2 emissions of just 95g/km.
The new Fiesta Style and cheaper Studio models are on sale now.
