Ford introduces the facelifted Fiesta Van

Article by Christian A., on December 31, 2012

You’ll be surprised at how frugal the new Ford Fiesta Van is. Set to launch in 2013, this agile and stylish car-derived van for big and small businesses offers top-of-the-class fuel efficiency and technologies that are new to its segment. The new Fiesta Van is available with diesel engines that could all attain sub-100g/km CO2 emissions and 76.4mpg or better.

The Fiesta ECOnetic Van is equipped with fuel-saving technologies to deliver best-in-class 87g/km and 85.6mpg. No other automaker in this class could match these figures. The Ford Fiesta Van comes with a very functional 1.0 cubic metre load space, giving businesses a flexible van with the appeal of a classic Fiesta.

The load compartment comes with a secure steel bulkhead and four cargo tie-down hooks, which were both designed in compliance with the international DIN standard for load restraints. It also features a sturdy rubber floor mat and resilient sidewall trim. There’s a bigger space for bulky items since the van has a load length of 1.3 metres and gross payload that ranges from 485-508kg.

Those who choose the Fiesta Van powertrain option will be getting the new 75PS 1.5-litre Duratorq TDCi and 95PS 1.6-litre Duratorq TDCi engines (which are both produced in Dagenham) and the 82PS 1.25-litre Duratec petrol units, both built at Bridgend.

The exceedingly efficient Fiesta Van ECOnetic is equipped with the specially created 95PS 1.6-litre Duratorq TDCi powertrain with standard Auto-Start-Stop, lowered suspension, aerodynamic rear under-tray and wheel trims, and low rolling resistance tires. Several crucial segment-first technologies are included in the new Fiesta Van’s package filled with the best Ford driver assistance and safety features. Businesses are able to promote safer driving with Ford MyKey.

This also reduces the driver’s exposure to danger at the wheel as well as offers fleets with ownership information. Just like the new Ford Transit Custom, the Fiesta Van also comes with Ford SYNC (the in-car connectivity system). During an accident, Ford SYNC with Emergency Assistance directly connects the vehicle occupants to local emergency services operators in the right language for that country.

The new Fiesta also gets Active City Stop, a first-in-class technology that’s meant to help drivers avoid low speed collisions. It is available together with other features that increase convenience like the Hill Start Assist, Easy Fuel and Rear View Camera.
