Caught: 2014 Ford Fiesta Spied with Minimal Camouflage

2014 Ford Fiesta Spied Front Three Quarter
The 2014 Ford Fiesta is set to debut later this year with styling reminiscent of the new 2013 Fusion. A spy photographer recently managed to catch a new 2014 Fiesta sedan testing with no body cladding, providing us a good idea of what the next Fiesta will look like.
Without the body cladding up front, we can clearly see that the 2014 Fiesta has a baby 2013 Fusion vibe. The car’s reworked headlights subtly mimic the Fusion's, while its grille looks to be an almost direct transplant of the Fusion's Aston-Martin grille. The front end shots reinforce our guess that the 2014 Fiesta may move the optional LED running lights mounted below the headlights to a new set integrated into the headlights.
Around back this 2014 Fiesta sedan sports a trunk with a new integrated lip spoiler. The rear bumper also looks to be squarer than before, while the taillights also receive a Fusion-like appeal. The funky multi-color door handles won't make it into production.
Given Ford's engine downsizing trend, the U.S.-spec 2014 Fiesta is likely to be powered by the EcoBoost 1.0-liter turbocharged I-3, producing around 125 hp and 147 lb-ft of torque. The Fiesta's current 1.6-liter I-4 makes 120 hp and 112 lb-ft of torque, and receives 29/39 mpg city/highway in regular 2013 Fiesta models and 29/40 mpg in SFE trim.
The 2014 Ford Fiesta is expected to debut this fall at the Los Angeles auto show.
