The new Fiesta features a voice-activated in-car connectivity system.

In Amsterdam this week, Ford revealed the dynamic look of the best-selling Fiesta that features a sharper design and a host of exclusive technology features.

The Fiesta delivers an advanced package of technologies including voice-activated in-car connectivity system Ford SYNC.

Ford New Zealand is looking to bring the new Fiesta with the 1-litre EcoBoost engine here next year.

"Fiesta has been one of the world's best-loved small cars across five decades, and the sporty appeal of the last generation Fiesta inspired real passion among global compact car customers, contributing to its status as the world's most successful small car," said Martin Smith, Ford of Europe executive design director.

"We had to keep that vital part of Fiesta's make-up - but we also wanted to give it a more sophisticated look."

Ford launched the first Fiesta in 1976 and has since sold more than 15 million models around the world.

The new Fiesta features design cues inspired by the latest Ford global design language and concept vehicles.
