Arrival of the model
Why did the Ford Fiesta (sedan) join the segmentClass B cars? Well, the answer is simple. The fact is that the demand for cars of class C (there was once the leader of the "Ford Focus") began to fall recently. This is not about the countries of Europe, but about the Russian Federation. Therefore, it was decided to please our compatriots with a novelty. Although the Ford Fiesta (sedan) has long been sold in European countries, but in Russia this compact car has become a novelty, but will it succeed and become popular when the segment has long been established on the leadership positions of Reno-Logan "" Kia-Rio "and" Hyundai-Solaris "? Well, these cars, and really, budget and attractive, but" Ford "- it's still American production.And this fact alone is a significant plus. What about the other benefits? It's worth telling more about this.
"Ford Fiesta" - a sedan with an interesting appearance. In fact, this same hatchback of this model, that's only with a modified rear end. The style of the car is original - corporate, you can say. There is something similar to both "Mondeo" and "Focus". The front part is decorated with a trapezoidal radiator grille and an unusual form of optics. The headlights seem to be extended forward, and the bumpers are decorated in a sportlike manner aggressively. Thanks to these details, the exterior looks very expressive. If you look at the model from the side, you can understand how well it has a suitable path for our Russian roads. Especially if we consider the back part.
In general, externally, the "Ford Fiesta" - a sedan that can satisfy the taste of a lover of classic cars. No pretentiousness and excesses - everything is simple, cute, but with a certain "zest".
What about the car "Ford Fiesta"? Sedan, the photo of which is provided below, differs not only in a very attractive exterior, but also with a comfortable interior.

The steering wheel is comfortable, perfectly fits in the hand, it can be adjusted both on the fly and on the angle. The original look is a stylish tachometer with a speedometer. The indicators from them are read perfectly. Other data that appear on the instrument panel are smaller, but still they can be easily read.
But the most attention is drawn to the centralconsole. It has a rather unusual shape. And it is there that all the main control buttons are located, as well as various switches. Armchairs, by the way, are also maximally comfortable. They can also be adjusted in height. One thing: despite the fact that the "Fiesta" base is rather short, inside enough space - in any case, for the front passenger and the driver it will be enough with a vengeance.
