2018 Ford Fiesta Leaked on Twitter
More details expected soon
Ford Europe revealed the next Fiesta subcompact hatchback on Twitter. The model will fully debut later today, but this lone photo tells us a bit about the next iteration of one of our favorite B-segment hatches.
Though it doesn't look all that different from the current model in this photo, the 2018 Fiesta is expected to be the first of a new generation. According to Auto Express, the new car will continue to use Ford's Global B platform, but will become more upscale with a more refined interior. The new Fiesta's headlights are less swept back than the current model, and the grille is now more hexagonal than trapezoidal - though you could argue it still looks somewhat Aston Martin-like. This is an ST-Line model, which likely means the standard Fiesta will look a bit less sporty.
Powertrains are still unknown, but expect the turbocharged 1.0-liter EcoBoost I-3 to remain in service. You can also expect a full-blown ST performance model to return, hopefully with a power bump from the current model's 197 hp and 202 lb-ft of torque.
The new Ford Fiesta bows at Ford's "Go Further" event in Cologne, Germany, later today, so we don't have to wait too long before we learn all about the Euro-spec Fiesta. Check back for more details.
