I know it's probably a bit early to discuss this, but I'm just curious what you guys think Ford should do to improve the MK7 for it's facelift. You never know, someone important at ford may read this and take ideas into consideration :D...wishful thinking.

For me, I'd like to see:
A 6 speed gearbox!
Solar reflect windscreen option (and windows)
Central windscreen wiper setup, (maybe tidied away under cowling along with washers). Because there's a massive patch where they don't reach.
HID headlamp option (or even better LED)
Better quality speakers/sound - even as an option
Loads more idea's but I'll leave it there for now.

Desired Line up:
Style - 1.25/1.4 TDCI
Zetec - 1.25/1.4/1.4 TDCI
Zetec S - 1.6/1.6 TDCI
Titanium - 1.4/1.6/1.6 TDCI
Titanium X - Detuned 1.6 ecoboost/Twin Turbo 1.6 TDCI <- ambitious :P
ST - 1.6 ecoboost

Share your thoughts :)

A sunroof... at least 180bhp ST would be nice too.

6 speed box would be worth while, I test drove a Yaris with a 6 speed box and it was great on dual carriageways or motorways, a ratio that would let my diesel do 70MPH at about 2000rpm would help push the MPG up.

Dual airco system.

Disc brakes on the rear.

Longer gear in first and second.

The 7.5 is happening in 2 phases. Later this year around sept there will be a upgraded / facelift interior with dash board etc. Then early next year the external will change. As confirmed by Ford

Where was that confirmed by ford?

As for the audio upgrades. Ford already have upgrades in thier accsesories booklets from Pioneer.

The ST will be on the way at some point. I think the Zetec S should(if they were going to go that route) get an option of the detuned ecoboost(Zetec SS< Copyright Fiat? lol.) But to be honest, I doubt that, like with the Corsa 1.6T VXR and the old 1.6TCorsa SRi(before vaux' got wise and changed the Sri to a 1.4T) that could be simply remapped to almost VXR power it could take sales from the Top of the range. Same with the minis they can be remapped up to a different spec level.

What a terrible business decision that is.

Stock costs are going to be huge with a two stage facelift.

The only thing that I hope, is that Ford will come up with a much better car, not just a basic facelift which is common for many car producers.

A facelift is just what it is though, I'm doubtful for any major changes. You give a 50yr botox shes still 50. The fiesta is a good car anyway. They just refresh the bodywork/interoir and may add a few new options.

You are right. A few extra options would be nice.

I would have liked to have a panoramic roof and some LED tail lights but maybe coming, who knows :D

Also the interior could be a bit worked on.

By the way Jay, you have 6 speakers right?

You wont see many changes in a facelift. It will have a small change to how it looks on the outside (probs a different bumper) and small dashbaord changes, other than that i cant see much else changing. You may find the Sony radio lower down in the spec range with the facelift, maybe Zetec and above?
