Ford Fiesta 2002 Hatchback

This generation of Ford Fiesta has been produced from June, 2002 to October, 2005. We can provide information about 9 modifications of this generation. The car has been produced only with front wheel drive.

In 2002, the fifth generation Fiesta made its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show. In developing it, Ford engineers focused primarily on spaciousness, style, safety and handling. Compared to the previous generation, the Fiesta V was larger, heavier and has a larger wheelbase. Thanks to the increased size, the designers have managed to make the rear seats more comfortable and the car, as a whole, more stable.
The interior was quite cozy. The seats are upholstered in fabric and are quite comfortable. The rear part of the front seat cushion can be raised and lowered with a special plastic lever. The backrest inclination is adjusted by a handy wheel, the end of which has a rubber hoop to prevent slipping of the fingers. The rear seat can be folded down either completely or in parts. In this case, the luggage compartment is increased by more than three times.
Not only the gauges are illuminated, but also all the buttons down to the side window lift buttons. The comfortable steering wheel in genuine leather has responsive and informative power steering.

The body is a sturdy box with rigid all-steel sides and an almost vertical rear wall, increasing luggage space compared to the old Fiesta, which had a sloping rear end.
The doors have extra side-impact protection and their rigid window frames do not restrict visibility. The fifth door can be opened with a special button on the left-hand side of the instrument panel. All windows are unobtrusively tinted, visible only from inside. Only the front side windows are electrically operated.
The creators paid special attention to safety of Fiesta's passengers. The car is equipped with two airbags, four anti-shock curtains. Safety is augmented with anti-lock brakes, which perform particularly well on wet and slippery road surfaces.

Fiesta V comes with a 1.3-litre to 1.6-litre petrol engine (70PS to 100PS) and a 1.4-litre turbo-diesel engine (68PS). A version with a 2.0-liter petrol engine and 150 hp also appeared later.
