Ford Malaysia decided to show the more sporty Ford Fiesta to Malaysian first as their marketing strategy. According to the people on floor there will be a sedan Ford Fiesta version later this year. Our sources also notify us that, there will be another preview of Ford Fiesta tomorrow in 1utama tomorrow 7th April to 11th April – but we are not sure whether the Fiesta sedan version will be display. With a estimate pricing  from RM75,000 to RM85,000. The Ford Fiesta will be an attractive bargain.

The Ford Fiesta is fully imported – a CBU ( Complete Built-Up) unit from Thailand. Ford Fiesta Hatchback here as shown, has a few sporty element. While others would call their car as aerodynamically design, Ford would say this Ford Fiesta is Kinetic Design. Do check out the rear diffuser on the bumper and the rear spoiler.

While Mazda choose to go with smiley front fascia, Ford which is closely related to Mazda, decided to go the other way for the front fascia. You will be able to notice there’s a lower spoiler lip for the bumper with bodykit on the Ford Fiesta hatchback. Foglights will be available only on the Ford Fiesta 5-door sport.

Ford as an American brand, are not so “daring” in terms of designing their cars. In my opinion, their designs somewhat sits between the European design and Japanese designs. There will be 2 air-bags but based on specification it will only be available in the 5 door hatchback version of Ford Fiesta. Steering is not leather but it has standard audio controls.

Ford Fiesta comes in 2 engine, a 1.6L Duratec Ti-VCT paired with a 6-speed automatic dual-clutch Powershift and 1.4L Duratec, 5-speed manual. The 1.6 engine produces 120Ps @ 6000rpm while the 1.4 produces 96Ps. More goodies on the Ford Fiesta hatchback – there will be USB Connectivity and Bluetooth, only with the hatchback as stated.

This particular Ford Fiesta unit here it’s wrap with leather seats. But based on the estimate spec we receive it will be frabric, our guess is this could be an optional package.

The Ford Fiesta comes in front discbrake and rear drum brakes. 15″ rims for the 1.6 sedan and 16″ rims for the 1.6 hatchback. The 1.6 hatchback also comes with sport suspension. Ford Fiesta also comes with ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) as standard.

The Ford Fiesta also comes with Electronic Side Mirror control and6 speaker. Notice, that there’s a tweeter placed in the door handle area, as comment from a fastmotoring fan “normally we don’t see other cars put tweeter there”.

As overall, we thinks that the Ford Fiesta is a quite a good bargain especially the hatchback version, judging on the specification information we receive. There are much more goodies which is only available in the hatchback version. The Ford Fiesta won many awards from countries all over the world. Many Malaysians would think about the resell value of Ford, however i believe with this Ford Fiesta in Malaysia with such a attractive price, it will at least change of some views.
