Ford muffles the Fiesta with latest update

2021 Ford Fiesta HERO

The new Ford Fiesta has arrived, however, with the removal of design details that enlivened the previous model, the latest version is pretty bland

Ford has revealed its updated Fiesta and Fiesta ST, both of which bring changes to the table, however, anyone expecting a dynamic new form should look away now as the removal of some distinctive details has resulted in an underwhelming final product. There is also a new Fiesta Van, which we will get to shortly. 

With the Fiesta, the exterior design team has made some notable alterations, particularly at the front. The long, curvy bonnet that featured on the previous car is still present, but on this latest model it stops a little sooner, resulting in a slight increase to the height of the nose. There is also a clear line in the body work to separate the grille from the bonnet – a significant change from the previous Fiesta where the bonnet ran smoothly into the grille, and made for a distinctive appearance.
