Ford Fiesta Trend replaces Zetec for bargain-hunting buyers

The new Ford Fiesta Trend is a new value variant which arrives in dealers from August 2019. It replaces the outgoing entry-level Zetec model

Ford Fiesta TrendThe long-running Ford Fiesta Zetec is no more. It has been replaced by a new model variant, the Fiesta Trend, with prices starting from £15,995.

The new entry-level Fiesta comes with a single engine option, a 1.1-litre petrol motor producing 85 horsepower (those who want Ford’s excellent 1.0-litre Ecoboost turbo need to move up the range).

Both three-door and five-door variants are available.

Key standard features include 16-inch alloys with a glitzy silver and black machined finish. A choice of six metallic colours is, surprisingly, included in the price and privacy glass is also standard.

The front grille has a new mesh design, and the Fiesta Trend retains the distinctive LED running lights of more expensive models (the next model up in the range is Fiesta Titanium, priced from £18,320).

The Fiesta Trend is well specified in terms of infotainment, with a standard 8.0-inch colour touchscreen including DAB radio, plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Automatic headlamps, an electronic speed limiter, lane-keep assist and Ford MyKey (which allows parents to programme a second car key with safety nets such as speed limiters for their children) are all included.

Even air conditioning is standard.

The Fiesta Trend gets neat new seat upholstery with a blue featureline stripe as well.

The new car, said Ford of Britain MD Barratt, “has been designed with our value Fiesta shopper in mind and represents the package of styling and ease of use they require”.

Ford predicts 1 in 4 Fiestas sold in the UK will be the new Trend model when deliveries begin in August.

Boosting its value appeal even further is an attractive PCP package: with a £5,000 deposit, customers can get a four-year Ford Options deal for £120 a month. Even the annual mileage cap is quite generous, at 9,000 a year.
