Looks like they've improved the location of the window switches, and a 5 door with side skirts!

Handy that they have fitted a rest for the clutch foot


Fiesta already has a foot rest?

1.5 diesel? No thanks. Looks terrible to be honest at the front, not a patch on the current Fiesta's.

Titanium's may be different, my Zetec only has a carpet covered mound :( beside the clutch pedal. Face lifted one has a proper plastic looking rest

Mine is just a carpet covered bump in the floor. Still works well as a foot rest tho imo.

You can always get a foot rest plate from a mondeo or something tho.

I'm not sure if the large gaping grille suits a small car like the Fiesta as much as it does the latest Mondeo. I suppose we will get used to it and less paintwork area for stone chips ! The old grille was neater in my opinion.

Very nice!
I am planning on changing my Titanium next year for a brand new one. I feel a 118 BHP Ecoboost is on the cards... ;)

The auto already had a footrest. I have covered mine with rubber to make it easier to clean the mud off !

I really like the look of the new Mondeo.

The difference is that the Mondeo was designed from the ground up to look like that, the fiesta has just had the front modified from the current design.

I really don't think it suits the Fiesta, plus I hate it when they make a big change to the front and nothing to the back making the car look like a cut and shut.

Bet the 177BHP 1.6 ST will be awesome fun.

I love it!
And the 1.0 litre engines at 99bhp and 118bhp, what is the zetec s going to be if there's going to be one? Love the ST that little bit more though, but I see that its going to have a new contender being the return of the Peugeot GTi in the 208 model and it actually looks quite nice! 200bhp and 203lb ft of torque, also with a 1.6 engine.

Very nice Aston Martin-ish front grille must be new thing that will come in across the board as Top Gear showed new Mondeo with that new grille a while ago

I suspect in the future, Ford will maybe drop the current 1.6 and replace it with the new 1.0 eco boost 118 bhp engine.

Anyone watching the Go Further event live? www.gofurtherlive.com

They just showed the new Transit, Fiesta (+ ST) and now on the Mondeo. ST looks immense, 0-62 in just over 6 seconds. Have to say the Mondeo is very good looking too (never thought I would ever call a Mondeo that!) :P

Don't forget the mustang in 2015 ;)
