Thanks to the consumers’ ongoing fascination with crossover utility vehicles, the Blue Oval is discontinuing the Ford Fiesta in the U.S. market. That means that the 2019 model year will become the last year of the subcompact car range in the market. And for its last year, the 2019 Ford Fiesta is getting a few small, but noteworthy changes.
First and foremost, the 2019 Ford Fiesta deletes the range-topping Titanium trim level from the 4-door Sedan and 5-door Hatch. In addition, the 5-door Hatch in the S trim level is now available exclusively to fleet customers, and not at the retail level.
Addition, the 2019 Ford Fiesta now includes the 12-volt rear powerpoint and Ambient Lighting feature only in conjunction with the SE Appearance Package. The model also deletes the following content from the SE appearance package:
- Aluminum Mini Spare Wheel
- Charcoal Black Bolster with Red Seat Stitching
- Driver Seat Adjustable Lumbar Support
Lastly, the Engine Block Heater is now an optional feature in cold weather States, rather that standard.
The rest of the 2019 Ford Fiesta – including mechanical elements, safety and security, exterior, and driver assist – remain identical to those of the 2018 model.
Those looking to buy a new Ford Fiesta should run to their local dealer, because one of the world’s best subcompacts is about to disappear, a rather sad reality for North American dwellers. Meanwhile, car buyers in other parts of the world will be able to enjoy the all-new, seventh-generation model – which is a segment-leading vehicle.
