Ford Europe has given us our first taste of the all-new, 2018 Ford Fiesta subcompact car before the official unveiling in Germany set to take place later today, tweeting out a photo of the redesigned Fiesta in European ST-Line trim.
That said, many of the features on this car – things like the big wheels and blacked-out grille – are not necessarily representative of the base 2018 Ford Fiesta, but there’s still plenty here to clue us in on what to expect. For instance, this new subcompact appears a bit lower and wider than its predecessor from the photograph, although it’s still built on the same B-car platform. The hard edges of the surface sculpture have also largely been replaced by softer, rounder creases, and the hood has almost entirely been ironed out.

We still don’t have any solid information on the new Ford Fiesta regarding such details as powertrains, electronic gadgets, or trim levels; we’ll have to wait until later in the day for those. At the least, this image gives us a good indication of what to anticipate in terms of exterior styling, and we can’t wait to see the rest of the car.
Check back for more as it develops.
