  • Ford Model: Fiesta 1.6TDCI Titanium 2010

Posted 15 January 2011 - 12:36 PM

I have just ordered a FORD DIRECT Fiesta Titanium 1.6 TDCI ( 60 reg 2010) through a dealer, and have a query about the SONY radio fitted to this model. It is shown in the current printed brochure but not the on line one . It looks different and has a black glossy front.I have been assured that the car I have ordered has this radio ( Marked SONY and Black faced)
Is this radio a DAB one , the dealer says yes but I am not sure. What does it do differently ( if anything)to the previous silver faced Titanium radio?
The car will arrive in about two weeks so then I can answer my own questions.
Also is there anywhere on a Ford site that I can download a PDF of the Car manual and Audio manual? The Skoda site allows you to do this, and I just want to read up on the car before it arrives.

Have something to contribute?

The Sony radio is now standard on the titanium, but is not DAB as far as I know - see this. I believe it has better sound quality than the silver one and an extra 2 speakers bringing the total to 8.

For the manual try this: Online version. There's also a new PDF linked to somewhere on here that has the Sony stereo and reversing camera in. Can't find that yet though...

Edit: Found the pdf link: PDF

The picture is in the current Fiesta brochure. but when I get the car in about two weeks I will post some pix. Just joined the forum today so feeling my way around a bit. It's my wifes car but I will drive it a lot. Disappointed its not a DAB radio but wasn't expecting it to be anyway. The main reason for wanting it was to get rid of some of the aluminium( plastic) trim on the dash and maybe better sound quality. We have been used to a Skoda Fabia which is all black and don't particularly like fascias that look like a 12 year old's "boombox"....its my age you see!!

Its a great radio/sound system. I have the sony one too (I put a few pics of it half way down my thread if you want to see the overall appearence of the dash > http://www.fordowner...opic=17920&st=0 ).

When I looked at photos of it when it was first announced I thought it looked a little after-market but since then it has grown on me and I love it. Sure you will too.

Wow nice work - You should start a retro-fit thread - I've noticed several people asking if it can be done on this forum.

I have had my new Ford titanium for a week now. The Sony system is amazing but there are also great other features Inc the voice control, Bluetooth and the "Y" cable to connect a iPhone/iPod with the car with out all that messy and unnecessary wiring every where! You need to order the "y" cable from ford parts or your dealership. 25. the sound quality is good to. I had a 56 plate Audi A3 which had built in Bose speakers and ok the sound was amazing but on a serious note the ford speakers are pretty similar in sound quality! Hope you enjoy your Ford!

My 2 year old Titanium has that with the standard unit, it's not specific to the Sony unit. Personally, I prefer a stubby USB stick for my music, can leave it in the car, cheaper than an iPod cable and no messy cables anywhere.

I just play music over blue tooth with my Iphone. Works a treat, plug it in to charge and then got to the stream setting.

Saves me forking out for a cable.

I dont know what to be more concerned by the fact a mod was aparently so simple as changing it or the fact that a stereo only found in cars made in the last 3 months was as at a scrappy im assuming a write off.

I don't have to do anything, just get in the car and drive off, no taking phone out of pocket, no plugging it in to charge, no draining of phone battery and no bluetooth syncing issues. It couldn't be easier.

Yeah I know, I use the USB system for the rest of my music...

It's the same as the Alfa.
