The new Ford Fiesta will grow in size, new spy photographs show.
The Fiesta has been criticized for a cramped interior relative to its competitors, and the upcoming redesign aims to address that and other concerns.
Sources have said the Fiesta, along with the next Focus, likely will lose the dual-clutch transmission that has damaged Ford’s third-party quality ratings in recent years.
The Fiesta hatchback spotted this week has a longer wheelbase and a new silhouette with a nose that looks less rounded than that of the current model. It’s expected to arrive in Europe and the U.S. by mid-2017. The taillights move from a vertical orientation to a horizontal look that extends onto the tailgate and gives the car a wider look.
