Ford Fiesta at Paris 2012

Watch our video of the facelifted Ford Fiesta which debuted at the 2012 Paris Motor Show

The facelifted Ford Fiesta has made its Paris Motor Show debut.

The revisions include a new face, with gaping grille, sculpted bumper and redesigned headlights. Inside the changes are subtle, but the car now benefits from Ford’s new infotainment system, which gives the owner greater control over the car’s safety features.

The updated Fiesta will go on sale early next year, with prices for the entry-level 1.25-litre petrol starting at around £10,000. What’s more, you'll be able to buy it with Ford’s revolutionary new 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine – giving peppy performance and super-frugal running costs.

Completing the range will be Ford’s flagship Fiesta ST – which packs 178bhp from its 1.6-litre turbocharged engine, making it a firm rival for the upcoming Peugeot 208 GTi.

Great review, glad I'm not alone in thinking the Aston facelift really isn't working on the Fiesta. Those electronic 'my key' options scare me as to what world we are becoming... wrapping our kids up in cotton wool is starting to sound like cruelty!

So even though it's getting the 1.0 Ecoboost engine Ford are still persisting with the awful 1.25 engine in the Fiesta, they sure know how to ruin a car don't they?
