Ford Fiesta Van (2018): At A Glance
Based on the Ford Fiesta passenger car, the van conversion sees the rear seats removed to create 1.0 cubic metre of space with a load length of 1.3 metres. The van has a flat floor with a tough rubber covering and tie-down hooks. Cargo capacity will peak at 500kg, for light haulage work
Powertrains include petrol and diesel, with the latter comprising of Ford’s familiar 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine with 120PS. A 125PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine is also available. Claimed economy will mirror the passenger car with the three-cylinder petrol returning roughly 66mpg and the diesel provide as much as 80mpg.
The three-door van is available in standard or sport trim, with the hot hatch-inspired Sport Van making up the majority of sales. Like the Fiesta ST the van gets a rear spoiler and 18-inch alloy wheels, plus colour coded rocker panels.
Ford’s latest Sync3 infotainment system is also fitted as standard, with an 8.0-inch colour touchscreen and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone connectivity. The sporty themes continues inside with a flat bottomed steering wheel and aluminium pedals.
The Fiesta Van gets a comprehensive array of semi-autonomous tech, including automatic city braking, adaptive cruise control and a blind spot warning system. The van also has FordPass Connect to provides live traffic updates for the navigation system. The driver can download an app for their smartphone to open the doors, locate the vehicle in a car park and monitor tyre pressures, oil level and fuel.
