Ford unveiled the all-new Fiesta Sport Van that returns to the Ford commercial vehicle line-up in autumn this year.
Based on the latest multi-award-winning Fiesta passenger car, the all-new Fiesta Sport Van provides a stylish, compact and economical vehicle for businesses of all sizes.
The new model, in an eye-catching Sport series, is powered by a 1.0-litre EcoBoost with 125PS and 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine with 120PS.
Inside the three-door body, there is a practical load compartment capable of carrying approximately 1.0 cubic metre of cargo with a load length of almost 1.3 metres, and gross payload of around 500kg. The load space features a composite and mesh full bulkhead, durable sidewall trim, and a tough rubber floor covering with four tie-down hooks.
The all-new Fiesta Sport Van’s cabin provides a smart and comfortable working environment, trimmed with attractive, hard-wearing materials, and providing the latest interior technologies including Ford’s SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system.
Compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™, the SYNC 3 system is standard, and comes with a floating, tablet-inspired 8-inch colour touchscreen. Using the Ford SYNC AppLink feature, drivers are able to access a wide range of key apps from their smartphone using the large display in the vehicle, now including the popular Waze traffic app and Cisco WebEx.
Business customers also benefit from the convenience and efficiency delivered by the new FordPass Connect on-board modem for connectivity on the move.
Like the Fiesta passenger car, an unprecedented range of driver assistance technologies can be specified to enhance the Fiesta Sport Van’s comfort, convenience and safety, including Ford’s Pre‑Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection emergency braking system, Adaptive Cruise Control and Blind Spot Information System.
The comprehensive suite of technologies helps urban van drivers overcome typical daily challenges, such as Cross Traffic Alert to support easy and safe parking, plus Traffic Sign Recognition and Adjustable Speed Limiter to help avoid speeding fines.
For customers wanting the ultimate in sporting style for their business, the all-new Fiesta Sport Van is available with unique front and rear design treatment, colour-coded rocker panels and up to 18-inch alloy wheels. The sporting theme continues inside the cabin, with revised seats and trim materials, as well as unique steering wheel, pedals and gear lever. Adjustable Speed Limiter and Lane Keeping System are standard, heated seats and steering wheel are optional.
