Just like the original Fiesta “world car,” the new Fiesta is small, nimble, and surprisingly sporty. Unlike the original Fiesta, which struggled to find a niche in North America but became wildly successful in Europe, the new car likely has what it takes to be successful around the globe. Partially, that’s because of an excellent chassis design that was co-developed with Mazda, known for their ability to maximize the fun-to-drive quotient in small cars. The companies strived to keep weight down through the use of high-strength steel where they could, resulting in a feather-light curb weight despite generous interior dimensions for a B-class car. A 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine (dubbed “Zetec” by Ford) produces 118 horsepower, which considering the insubstantial weight of the vehicle results in sprightly performance. Outside, the Fiesta sports Ford’s newest design language, called “Kinetic,” which is an accurate description of how the car’s fun lines reflect its dynamic personality.
The Fiesta can be chosen as the player's first car in Forza Motorsport 3 and can be selected as a reward in Forza Motorsport 4 upon reaching driver level 1.
The 2009 Fiesta is the first model year of the sixth generation Ford Fiesta and was made available for the international market with the exception of North America. The Zetec S is a performance trim of the Fiesta and was complemented by the more powerful Fiesta ST in 2013.
