Ford launches all-new Fiesta Sport Van

Ford has launched the fabulous all-new Fiesta Sport Van in the United Kingdom. The launch took place recently at the 2018 CV Show in Birmingham, England.

Based on the latest multi-award-winning Fiesta passenger car, the all-new Fiesta Sport Van is said to provide a stylish, compact and economical vehicle for businesses of all sizes.

The new model, in an eye-catching Sport series, is powered by either a 1,0-litre EcoBoost or 1,5-litre TDCi diesel engine.

Inside the three-door body, there is a practical load compartment capable of carrying approximately one cubic metre of cargo with a load length of almost 1,3 m, and a gross payload of around 500 kg. The load space features a composite and mesh full bulkhead, durable sidewall trim, and a tough rubber floor covering with four tie-down hooks.

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 PreCollision Assist with Pedestrian Detection emergency braking system, Adaptive Cruise Control and Blind Spot Information System.

Ford has been the top-selling commercial vehicle brand in Europe for the past three years, and has consolidated its leadership position so far in 2018, with 93 200 vehicles sold year to date through the end of March, marking the highest first quarter for Ford commercial-vehicle sales since 1993. There are no plans to launch the Fiesta Sport Van in South Africa.
