The Ford Fiesta is a B-segment car manufactured by the Ford Motor Company since 1976, now in its sixth generation. The Fiesta is manufactured in Europe, the United States of America, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Venezuela, China, India, Taiwan, Thailand and South Africa. In 2010, the sixth generation Fiesta was introduced worldwide, including in the U.S. and Canada, making it the first Fiesta model in North America since the end of 1980 exposed hard Mark I was sold. The Fiesta has sold over 16 million units since 1976, making it the third best selling brand behind the Ford Escort and the F-Series.

The Fiesta was originally established under the project name ” Bobcat ” (not to be confused with the consistent rebadged version of the Ford Pinto Mercury) developed and approved for development by Henry Ford II at September in 1972. MDGs show a production cost U.S. $ 100 less than the current escort. The vehicle was on a wheelbase longer than that of the Fiat 127, but with overall length shorter than that of the Ford Escort. The final proposal was developed by Tom Tjaarda at Ghia. The project was approved for production in autumn 1973, with Ford’s engineering centers in Cologne and Dunton employees.

Ford estimated that 500,000 Fiestas would be generated in the year, and built a completely new factory near Valencia, Spain, a factory trans-axis, near Bordeaux, France, factory extensions for the assembly plants in Dagenham, UK. Final assembly also took place in Valencia. The name Fiesta belonged to General Motors when the car was developed, but has the freedom to Ford to use on their new B-class car. Was carefully crafted after years of speculation in the press about Ford’s new car, the subject of a number of the press since the end of 1975. A party was on display at the Le Mans 24 hour race in June 1976 and the car went on sale in France and Germany in September, 1976, to appear the frustration of British traders, with the RHD versions began in the UK in January 1977.

Party Mark II appeared towards the end of summer 1983, a redesigned user interface and interior and trunk lid what the character lines from the sides of the car. 1.3L OHV engine fall and replaced in 1984 by a group of similar capacity CVH engine, even lean replaced by 1.4 L two years later. Cc engines Kent/Valencia 957 and 1117 continued with only minor changes and for the first time a Fiesta diesel was produced adjusted with a 1600 cc engine from the Ford Escort.

The CTX continuously variable transmission, also fitted in the Fiat Uno, eventually appeared early in 1987 to 1.1 L models. This transmission provides a fast and economical driving experience, despite the resemblance of the sensation of the continuously variable transmission of a slipping clutch.
