2017 Ford Fiesta Spied Testing In The UK

Sponsored Links

By 2017, the Ford Fiesta subcompact is due for a generational update, having been on the road in its current form since 2008, with just a mild mid-cycle refresh in 2013. Now, the UK’s AutoExpress has acquired some spy photographs of what looks to be an early 2017 Ford Fiesta test mule.

You can check out said spy photos at the AutoExpress website.

This 2017 Ford Fiesta test mule features plenty of obscuring body pieces, despite a lack of vinyl camouflage. Nonetheless, the folks at AutoExpress point out what looks like a revised front grille shape and an wider-looking track width, suggesting that the 2017 Ford Fiesta might grow in size for this new generation. The range of available petrol engines for the US market shouldn’t change drastically, although we wouldn’t be at all surprised to see the normally-aspirated 1.6-liter I4 go the way of the Dodo.

The forthcoming 2017 Ford Fiesta will almost certainly inspire an ST-badged performance variant like the current car, although it probably won’t come along until later. That said, we wouldn’t hold our breath for an RS.
