2016 Ford Fiesta For Sale In Nova Scotia
As the Fiesta has only been with us here since as recently as 2010, it might come as a surprise to some that the current model is actually part of what is now the sixth-generation of the incredibly popular Ford sub-compact. The current generation has been around in Europe now since 2008, which is the market it was originally designed and developed for. Although time is now getting on and plenty of other 2017 vehicles have already been in dealerships for a while now, Ford is keeping pretty tight-lipped so far about what to expect from the 2017 Ford Fiesta. Even though popular convention dictates it's about time for an all-new seventh-generation to take a bow, its arrival is still not confirmed for next year, or if we'll be seeing another mild refresh this time around.
As is the normal way of things, some camouflaged prototypes have been out and about on the roads in the Alps and spotted by European photographers. However, there remains some conjecture over whether what's been seen is going to be a 2017 or a 2018 model if it is going to eventually be the next-generation of the Fiesta. What's been spotted does appear to be somewhat larger than the current model, even though it's going to be constructed using the current car's platform for the obvious financial benefits that brings. From what's been seen so far, a next-generation 2017 Ford Fiesta could be stealing a good amount of styling cues from its larger sibling the Focus, which certainly isn't a bad thing at all.
It's expected the most notable enhancements the next Fiesta will benefit from will be on the inside, with high-quality materials and the latest features and technology all playing a big part in enhancing the Fiesta offer. What is currently a fairly small display in the 2016 Fiesta is likely to be upgraded to larger touchscreen, with Ford's latest SYNC 3 infotainment system employed for playing music, smartphone connectivity and for the satellite navigation. Ongoing development of driverless car technology means there are always going to be new safety features, so a lane departure warning system and blind spot monitoring, potentially with a type of traffic sign recognition software, could be added for upper trim levels.
At the heart of any 2017 Ford Fiesta, whether it's a new-generation or not, will be EcoBoost engine technology. So, for the very first time, the Fiesta lineup could be made up exclusively of three-cylinder units with different levels of power and performance.
Although we have now been graced with the presence of the awesome Focus RS, the ST will continue to be represent the ultimate in Fiesta performance models for as there are no plans whatsoever for a hardcore RS variant. But after waiting so long to finally be able to buy the RS version of the Focus, it's really not something worth losing any sleep over, especially as the Fiesta ST is already a pretty special car and is only going to get better with a new-generation.
As the Fiesta is still first and foremost a European model at heart, there's also a chance any new-generation could appear in showrooms over there first, with a refreshed version or even a carryover being offered here as the 2017 model. Whatever is actually going on, Ford is keeping its cards pretty close to its chest as far as the 2017 Ford Fiesta is concerned, at least for the meantime.
