The new standard LED headlights have a sleek horizontal design that also contributes to the confident and modern design language of the new Fiestavan. The taillights also receive a new black surround for a more sophisticated look.
The new Fiesta van is offered in two attractive trim levels. The sports model uses a honeycomb grille with a gloss black finish and wide body-colored side vents to enhance its visual appeal. The new 17-inch metallic-finished alloy wheels and lower sports suspension provide a more purposeful look. This can be reinforced with an optional new 18-inch pearl gray machined alloy wheel. Sport models also benefit from two-tone red and ebony interior trim with contrast red stitching.

New technology for city driving

All models benefit from standard LED headlights, but the optional matrix LED headlights allow you to adapt the beam pattern according to your driving scenario. The maneuvering and bad weatherlight features are triggered when the sensor detects the activation of a slow maneuver or windshield wiper and automatically adjust the beam pattern for a clearer view of the driver.

Efficient electric powertrain
The new Fiesta Van is the EcoBoost Hybrid 48V Mild Hybrid and EcoBoost Gasoline Powertrain, providing responsive and fuel efficient performance. The 125PS EcoBoost hybrid model features a belt-driven integrated starter / generator (BISG) instead of a standard alternator, which normally loses energy during braking and coasting to charge a 48-volt lithium-ion air-cooled battery pack. Allows recovery and storage of the vehicle, drives the vehicle’s electrical accessories and provides torque assistance during normal driving and acceleration.
