The Fiesta whose design spells S-A-F-E doesn’t break new ground but it has a confident stance that gives it a purposeful look. The Fiesta’s front end with its large grille, striking headlights and an aggressive-looking bumper is the best looking part while the side view is disappointingly plain. The Fiesta’s overall proportions and bulk makes it look larger than it actually is and also accentuates the skinny 175/65R14s on which it sits.
Like the vast majority of cars today, the Fiesta diesel is front-wheel drive and uses Macpherson coil over damper struts to suspend the front wheels, anti-roll bar, and rack and pinion steering system. Ford’s tailor-made for India springs have large diameters that are better suited for our roads. The steering rack is mounted on the cross member for greater steering accuracy, and twin tube shock absorbers have been called in for improved durability. The Fiesta uses a disc /drum brake combo, and has an (optional) anti-lock system.
