The Ford Fiesta hatchback has been the most popular super-mini in the UK for over a decade. It launched in 1976 and has gone through many versions since then to the seventh generation of the Fiesta launched in 2017. The cabin and the driver-assistance technology had a major re-vamp and the overall look was modernised.
Happy belated birthday to the Ford Fiesta! This iconic car appeared on the scene in 1976 and recently celebrated its 40th Birthday. Manufactured by the Ford Motor Company, the Fiesta which was originally developed under the project name “Bobcat”, was the first front wheel drive Ford car that was available on a global scale. Left-hand drive versions were accessible to buy in Europe in 1976 but the UK had to wait until 1977 for a right-hand drive version.
