Fiesta: Comfort and Convenience

June 24, 2010

The 2011 Fiesta is a compact vehicle with full-size accommodations for five. The cockpit design offers plenty of storage, with controls and switches within easy reach. Fiesta offers a wide range of available smart technology features that help make “getting there” more than half the fun (see what else fiesta has to offer).

ITELLIGENT ACCESS WITH PUSH-BUTTON START

No more fumbling with the key! Now you can get this feature, which enables drivers to enter Fiesta with one touch and then start the vehicle without ever taking the key out of their pocket.

The system senses when the Intelligent Access Key is in range of the door and allows access to the vehicle with a touch of the black button on the front door handle

The Fiesta’s trunk or hatch can be opened without using the key by depressing the switch located above the license plate when the Intelligent Access Key is in range

INTEGRATED SPOTTER MIRRORS

Class-exclusive (subcompact cars) integrated spotter mirrors smartly integrate secondary convex spotter mirrors to help keep Fiesta drivers aware of vehicles entering their “blind zone”.

HEATED SEATS

Fiesta offers features typically found on more expensive vehicles. One example is class-exclusive available leather seating surfaces and heated front seat cushions.

EASY FUEL CAPLESS FUEL FILLER

Industry- and class-exclusive Easy Fuel eliminates the need for a fuel filler cap and helps make fill-ups easier. A rubber seal on the fuel filler door helps keep dirt from entering Fiesta’s Easy Fuel filler opening.

CLASS-LEADING CONNECTIVITY

SYNC – Ford and Microsoft have teamed up to develop SYNC. This Ford-exclusive technology will change the way Fiesta customers use their digital media and Bluetooth wireless technology enabled mobile phones. SYNC allows Fiesta drivers to stay connected to the information, entertainment and people they care about while on the road:

  • Traffic, Directions and Information with complimentary 3-year prepaid subscription
  • 911 Assist
  • Vehicle Health Report (VHR)
  • Voice-activated hands-free calling
  • Uninterrupted connections that allow going directly from mobile phone to the vehicle’s hands-free phone during the call
  • Advanced calling features like caller ID, call waiting, conference calling and more
  • Voice-activated control of an MP3-style media player
  • Instant voice recognition
  • Audible text messages
  • Ringtone support
  • Automatic phone book transfer for mobile phones with this feature
  • Multilingual intelligence (English, French, Spanish)

4” Multifunctional Display – This class-exclusive feature places key information at eye level so Fiesta drivers spend less time looking away from the road.

  • Displays include audio system function, time and SYNC (if equipped)
  • Displays outside temperature and compass when equipped with SYNC

THOUGHTFUL STORAGE SOLUTIONS

Here’s a look at the smart storage inside Fiesta:

  • Center Console with two cup holders with a smaller center cup holder designed to hold and 8-ounce energy drink
  • Lower stowage area for mobile phones, garage door openers and other smaller items
  • Rear cup holder/storage area includes a coin holder
  • Driver and front passenger door trim panels include a map pocket and cup holder
  • Glove box offers up to 9L of storage space and includes a pen holder on the floor

2011 Fiesta: Quality, Reliability, Durability

June 17, 2010

The 2011 Fiesta is big on quality with NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness) control enhancements that improve on the global-market Fiesta models. An important North America-specific NVH control characteristic is the standard class-exclusive acoustic laminated windshield, designed to reduce interior noise levels in the Ford Fiesta. As a result, people are already taking notice. MSN has recently recognized the 2011 Ford Fiesta as their number one choice for vehicles under $15,000, beating out the Honda Fit and Nissan Versa among others (see top ranked 2011 fiesta).

QUALITY

Here’s a look at features that contribute to enhanced Fiesta quality:

  • Extra-stiff dash panel in the area of the cowl top, to help reduce stress and associated noise
  • Climate control system performs efficiently and operates quietly
  • Standard acoustic laminated windshield, outside rearview mirror placement and high-level door seals all work to help reduce wind noise
  • Acoustic headliner; full-coverage sound-absorption material in the door trim panels; A-, B- and C-pillar foam block and full-coverage floor panel mastics all work together to help reduce cabin noise
  • Stiff body structure and suspension attachment points help reduce road noise

TESTING

Customers will appreciate that Fiesta has endured the equivalent of thousands of customer miles in tough durability tests that included:

  • 800 cycles through salt and mud baths to help deliver excellent corrosion performance and protection
  • 24,000 miles over chuckholes (potholes) and cobblestones and 1500 cycles over railroad crossings to help ensure suspension integrity and performance
  • 13,000 miles with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) brake stops (panic stops) on gravel to help ensure excellent emergency maneuvering capability

DURABILITY

Fiesta comes standard with durability features, including:

  • Long-life Duratec engine components, such as the chain-driven dual camshafts, which offer outstanding durability with no required valve adjustments for 150,000 miles
  • Body-color 5 mph bumpers, which are rated at twice the federal requirement and help resist sheet metal damage from minor front and rear impacts
  • 10,000 mile oil-change interval under normal driving conditions
  • Spark plugs, which are rated for 90,000 miles under normal driving conditions

REAL-WORLD DRIVING EXPERIENCE

In addition to more than 550 component and system laboratory tests to verify durability and functionality over the vehicle’s lifetime, Fiesta has earned its stripes on the road with the Fiesta Movement Agents (see “fiesta agents”). During the original Fiesta Movement, the 100 Agents accumulated more than 1.5 million miles!

With Fiesta Movement Chapter 2, there are 20 teams of two Agents, each bringing the 2011 Fiesta to life through a new set of missions. A natural progression from phase one of the Fiesta Movement, missions will be centered on each team’s neighborhood, with Agents tapping into their local communities to help execute and promote missions.

MSN Ranks 2011 Ford Fiesta Number One Car Under $15,000

May 31, 2010

The 2011 Ford Fiesta hasn’t even hit the streets and it is already getting accolades!  This week MSN ranked Ford’s new Fiesta as their number one choice of vehicles under $15,000, beating out the Honda Fit and Nissan Versa among others. MSN calls the Fiesta “Bold on Style, and Big on Driving Dynamics”.

According to the editorial on MSN.com,” Its 1.6-liter Ti-VCT-equipped Duratec engine combines peppy performance on the road and a miserly personality at the pump. Its 30 mpg city/40 mpg highway figures are topped on this list only by the 3-cylinder smart. Inside, the cabin has the aura of a more upscale and more expensive class of car. The SE model ($14,320) includes an AM/FM/CD stereo with MP3/WMA playback capability and auxiliary input jack; and power windows and door locks.”

The much anticipated 2011 Ford Fiesta is scheduled to arrive in showrooms this summer. With its cool design, zippy performance and impressive content, Fiesta is not simply the new kid on the block…it will quickly become the most popular in its class! The Ford Fiesta is big on style and on looks. Eye-popping features, like its signature inverted trapezoid lower grille opening, make the 2011 Ford Fiesta stand out from the rest of the crowd. It also boasts of such features as sweeping quad-beam headlamps that frame and connect the hood to muscular, sculpted front fenders. Razor-slash side panels, dramatic tail lamps with honeycomb detailing, and muscular rear quarter panels are just a few of the other bold features that will set the 2011 Ford Fiesta apart from the competition. The new Fiesta will offer 9 different vivid paint colors, such Lime Squeeze, Bright Magenta, and Blue Flame. Two premium paints will also be available: Yellow Blaze Metallic Tri-coat and Red Candy Metallic with Tinted Clearcoat. The Fiesta will be offered in either a 4-door sedan or a 5-door hatchback model. Four trim levels are available: the base S, SE, SEL, and the SES
