2011 Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.4

What a car!! Drives SO smoothly, can't get over it! Loving the voice control stuff and the bluetooth calls. What a massive leap forward for Ford this car is over the previous model!

Not the best pictures took them quickly with bad lighting on my iphone

Congratulations on the new car Adam. Looks good.

Wait til you get that Sony sound system set to 'Pop' (via the DSP button) and the volume turned up a little.




Enjoy :)

lol. Yup the new fiesta is "a pretty big deal" as the Ford advert in america says.


So was the 2008 one you had an early mk7 or a previous shape fiesta (i can't remember the change over year)?

oooo thats a really nice car very jelous :) looks like youve just missed out on the slightly facelifted version.
The biggest three differences i think from the mk6.5 to the mk7 (driving wise) is the much smoother and less springy clutch and the much lower seating position also the lighter steering.
Do you think the new fiesta rides better than the old car? ive only driven the mk7 fiesta with 15 inch wheels and the ride is stiff but not crashy, but my mk6.5 fiesta with 16 inch wheels rode extremly hard.

What is in the slight facelift? The mark 7 rides like a much bigger car I reckon extremely refined for a supermini. The seating position is lower than the 6.5 but both cars had 16" alloys I believe. I'm extremely impressed by the car and the interior quality is a huge improvement over the 6.5

from memory it has, carpet on the rear of the back seats (in the boot area), silver door handels, silver airvents, updated head light switches with siler backing and also a all black interior ( not the bluey grey one, makes a big diffrence in real life not so much in pictures) chrome on the upper front grill, but you do have the new shape 16 inch wheels that have proven to not buckle like the others and you have the very nice sony cd player.

oh yes i agree with you about the mk7 being better in everyway (except the steering having 0 feedback when really pushing on) the one i had was a 1.4 tdci wich to be honest totally ruins the whole car, very noisy and vibrates like hell but to be fair it was very economical i could always get 70 mpg on a trip out and it would always do 60 mpg to a tank. Mothers 1.25 (82) style + engine is vertually silent from insisde, but i always hear a little burble from the exhaust as she pulls aways wich is nice (makes me happy haha im sad like that) :)

In that pic the light controls are the same as mine! I like the grey blue dash as my car is blue :) in regards to zero feedback as bad as it sounds I like that, I hate feeling bumps and marks in the road. In my last car you could feel the car twitching through the wheel which was in nerving

To be honest the changes are very little and ford change things all the time without even telling the consumer, i expect next month there change something else.
I know what you mean about the steering you get very little if any kick back from lumps and bumps in the road, but i mean if you really pushed the mk6.5 fiesta you could feel through the steering when the front tyres were letting go and when under steer was devoping and you could back of or balance the car on the throttle , or you could scandinavian flick the car and hold a slide very easily, but im soooooo! over things like that now im the grand age of 20 haha i just want to sit back and enjoy the view in nice refinement :)
and yes you are right the mk6 fiesta did tramline alot, where as the new one doesnt i think thats more down to do with the mk7 having camber control if anything :)

Ahh I dont do any wild driving! Get up to 70mph and cruise along! (I'm only 23 lol)

I have noticed above the glovebox there is a row of red lights that create a very nice cool glow.. is that standard on Titanium or all fiestas?
