The company has created a website for the refreshed sedan, putting up information about the technology, engine, design and safety features.

In terms of its design, it is plain to see that the facelift receives the Aston Martin grille that Ford has been using in its products across the world.

The grille gets five horizontal chrome slits on the top portion and two plastic slits on the bottom.

The hood is sculpted and the headlamps and foglamps have been changed, compared to the current edition.

The rear, however, remains the same save for mildly redesigned taillights. Images also show that the facelift gets push button start, under-seat storage and 60/40 folding rear seats.

The sedan will also get the Ford SYNC technology that allows for voice activated controls and linking of smartphones. Ford also says that the car will receive automatic headlights.

In terms of power units, the company has only announced the 1.5-liter TDCi engine. There is no mention of a petrol option, which is currently offered in manual and automatic transmission guise.

The current Fiesta hasn’t exactly sold in huge numbers and has been desperate for a facelift or an upgrade. For the last three months, only one Fiesta has been sold across India.

Competitors for the Fiesta include the new Honda City, Hyundai Verna, Fiat Linea and Volkswagen Vento.
