Over the last several weeks, Ford Authority spies have captured images of 2022 Ford Fiesta, 2022 Focus, and 2022 Focus ST prototypes out in the wild. These models are all due for a mid-cycle refresh, including the seventh-generation Fiesta, which has been in production since 2017. That’s precisely what the 2022 Ford Fiesta brings to the table, which we can confirm now that that the revised model has been officially revealed.
On the outside, the 2022 Ford Fiesta sports a new hood design that also increases the height of the front fascia, larger upper grilles, and a Blue Oval badge that’s been moved inside the front grille. New LED headlights are standard equipment across the Fiesta range. Out back, the taillights receive a new black surround, while LED units are available as an option with a black outer finish.
Trend and Titanium trims are fitted with a broader upper grille with horizontal strakes, a chrome surround, and side vents. Titanium models also feature chrome upper grille horizontal bars and window trim. Active models come equipped with a wide upper grille with gloss black vertical strakes and more prominent side vents. Finally, the ST-Line gets a new upper grille with a deeper inset and gloss black honeycomb finish, body-color wide side vents, and a larger lower grille.
The 2022 Fiesta is available in two new exterior colors – Boundless Blue and Beautiful Berry – as well as seven new alloy wheel designs. The high-end Vignale package – available on Titanium, ST-Line, and Active trims – features exclusive 17- and 18-inch alloy wheels, premium Sensico seat materials, and matte carbon-effect interior features.
On the inside, the 2022 Fiesta is available with a new 12.3-inch, fully-configurable TFT digital instrument cluster (also featured in the Ford Escape Titanium), an 8-inch touchscreen, and available SYNC 3. Some more premium options include wireless charging, a 10-speaker B&O Sound System, an integrated subwoofer, and a 575-watt Digital Signal Processing Amplifier.
Powertrain options for the 2022 Ford Fiesta include Ford’s 1.0L EcoBoost hybrid, which is available in 125 PS (123 horsepower) and 155 PS (153 horsepower) configurations and is paired with a six-speed manual transmission, while the 125 PS model can be optioned with Ford’s seven-speed, Powershift dual-clutch automatic transmission. Meanwhile, Ford’s non-hybrid 1.0L EcoBoost delivers 100 PS (98 horsepower) and is mated exclusively to a six-speed manual gearbox.
Meanwhile, the 2022 Fiesta ST gets a revised front fascia with honeycomb upper and lower grilles, large lower side vents, Chrystaline Grey upper grille and side vents, a body-color lower lip spoiler, side skirts, rear hatch spoiler, and rear diffuser, standard dark Magnetite 17-inch or optional 18‑inch alloy wheels, one new exterior color – ST Mean Green.
Inside, the 2022 ST features new Performance Seats, red contrast stitching, and Sensico trim, a flat-bottom steering wheel, and matte carbon-effect foil with red detailing. The ST is powered by Ford’s 1.5L EcoBoost powerplant, which delivers 200 PS (197 horsepower) and 320 Nm (236 pound-feet) of torque, which results in a 0-62 mile-per-hour time of 6.5 seconds. Underneath, the ST has been fortified with cold-formed force vectoring springs, Tenneco twin-tube front dampers, and an optional Quaife mechanical limited-slip differential.
“Moving with the times to set new standards for fun-to-drive, technology and efficiency has been a huge part of Fiesta’s enduring success,” said Roelant de Waard, general manager, Passenger Vehicles, Ford of Europe. “The new Fiesta is another big leap forward for the small car segment, and offers a model to suit every lifestyle.”
