Model Preview

Other than a refresh in 2014 and a little feature shifting from year to year, the Ford Fiesta has remained largely unchanged since debuting in 2011. Despite it getting quite long in the tooth, we expect the 2019 Fiesta to be a carryover model.

As a carryover, we expect the Fiesta to remain visually identical to the current model. This applies to the inside and outside. While this styling is showing its age, there is never much change in the subcompact market, so the Fiesta shouldn’t have too much of an issue competing.

With no visual changes coming, we also expect standard features to remain untouched. If this proves to be the case, we expect it to continue with standard 15-inch steel wheels, power mirrors, keyless entry, air conditioning, height-adjustable seat, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, Bluetooth, a 4.3-inch center display, a rearview camera, and more.

We also expect no changes under the hood. This means we expect its 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine to remain the base powerplant. This engine injects 120 horsepower and 112 pound-feet of torque and pairs with a standard five-speed automatic transmission. A six-speed dual-clutch unit is also available. The ST trim comes with a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder that produces 197 hp and 202 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual transmission is the only gearbox available in the ST.

Safety will likely remain an issue in this small, aging subcompact, as the current model received only a “Marginal” rating in the small-overlap test. The remaining crash tests turned in “Good” results, but that “Marginal” rating keeps it from receiving IIHS Top Safety Pick status. We expect this to remain the same in 2019.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official release date for the 2019 Fiesta, but we expect production to kick off in mid-September 2018.

Pricing also remains unconfirmed for now, but with no changes coming, we expect the 2019 Ford Fiesta’s pricing to remain close to the current model, which ranges from $16,175 to $22,160.

Competition will include the Honda Fit, Toyota Yaris, and Hyundai Accent.
