New 2018 Ford Fiesta Test Mule Spotted: Spy Shots

At about 8 years-old, the current, sixth-generation Ford Fiesta subcompact is somewhere near the end of its lifecycle, and due to be replaced by the 2018 model year. Photographic evidence corroborates this belief, as a new Ford Fiesta test mule was recently spied on public roads in Europe.

You can check out a full gallery of still images depicting the aforementioned, 2018 Ford Fiesta test mule at website Motor Authority.

Wearing a front grille that’s more in-line with that of the redesigned, 2017 Ford Fusion sedan, the new Ford Fiesta test mule looks to be a bit broader than the car it will replace. Assuming that observation is accurate, Ford’s popular subcompact will follow the path set by its big brother, the Focus, which also appears destined to receive a wider track.

In the rear, this new Ford Fiesta test mule looks to be trying out a brand new pair of taillights, which are more horizontal than the rather tall units utilized on the current car. And, according to Motor Authority‘s photographer, the interior on this makeshift prototype looked quite different from that of the current subcompact, featuring a shiny new set of gauges.

This particular Ford Fiesta test mule is of the 5-door hatchback variety, but we expect a 3-door version to sell alongside it, as in the current generation. A sedan body-style Fiesta might also make a return, though it would likely remain exclusive to North America and Asia.
