Ford New Zealand has today confirmed the new Ford Fiesta will be sold in New Zealand, launching in Q1 2009.
The all-new model, conceived and developed by the European arm of Ford’s global product development team, is the first of a generation of new global, small Ford cars which will be developed, designed and built for a single global customer base.
“The Fiesta is the first product of the Ford Global Product Development system and is a tangible example of Ford becoming a single, global company designing and building cars for customers around the world.
It features a dramatic exterior design that is accentuated by the bold use of colour and exciting interior styling.
The very first Fiesta was launched in 1976 and since then has sold over 12 million units.
“The vehicle is eye-catching, bold and stylish — the perfect compliment to our comprehensive line-up in New Zealand,” says Richard Matheson, MD of Ford NZ.
Ford New Zealand is not able to confirm which variants will be available in New Zealand.
