Responding to strong customer demand, the Fiesta Van returns to the Ford commercial vehicle line-up later in 2018. Based on the latest multi-award-winning Fiesta passenger car, the all-new Fiesta Van provides a stylish, compact and economical vehicle for businesses of all sizes.
The new model is powered by a choice of highly fuel efficient powertrains, with two petrol engines – 1.1-litre 3-cylinder with 85 PS, and 1.0-litre EcoBoost with 125 PS – and a 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine in a choice of 85 PS and 120 PS outputs.**
Inside the three-door body, there is a practical load compartment capable of carrying approximately 1.0 cubic metre of cargo with a load length of almost 1.3 metres, and gross payload of around 500 kg. The load space features a composite and mesh full bulkhead, durable sidewall trim, and a tough rubber floor covering with four tie-down hooks.
The all-new Fiesta Van’s cabin provides a smart and comfortable working environment, trimmed with attractive, hard-wearing materials, and providing the latest interior technologies including Ford’s SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system.
Compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™, the SYNC 3 system can be specified as an option, and comes with a floating, tablet-inspired 8-inch colour touchscreen. Using the Ford SYNC AppLink feature, drivers are able to access a wide range of key apps from their smartphone using the large display in the vehicle, now including the popular Waze traffic app and Cisco WebEx.
Business customers also benefit from the convenience and efficiency delivered by the new FordPass Connect on-board modem for connectivity on the move.
Like the Fiesta passenger car, an unprecedented range of driver assistance technologies can be specified to enhance the Fiesta Van’s comfort, convenience and safety, including Ford’s PreCollision Assist with Pedestrian Detection emergency braking system, Adaptive Cruise Control and Blind Spot Information System.
The comprehensive suite of technologies helps urban van drivers overcome typical daily challenges, such as Active Park Assist with Perpendicular Parking and Cross Traffic Alert to support easy and safe parking, plus Traffic Sign Recognition and Adjustable Speed Limiter to help avoid speeding fines.
For customers wanting the ultimate in sporting style for their business, the all-new Fiesta Van is available as a Sport model, with unique front and rear design treatment, colour-coded rocker panels, and up to 18-inch alloy wheels. The sporting theme continues inside the cabin, with revised seats and trim materials, plus unique steering wheel, pedals and gear lever; Adjustable Speed Limiter and Lane Keeping System are fitted as standard.
All-new Fiesta Van will be available to order this spring, for customer delivery in the Autumn.Source: Ford
