Ford has started volume production in Germany of the updated Fiesta (with the Fusion nose) which will introduce MyKey to Europe – an exclusive technology that allows parents to encourage safer driving and limit their teenager’s exposure to risk at the wheel.

The updated Fiesta also has the voice-activated in-car connectivity system SYNC; Active City Stop that helps drivers avoid low speed collisions; and SYNC Emergency Assistance that directly connects vehicle occupants to local emergency services operators after an accident.

There are seven petrol and diesel powertrain options including the new three cylinder, one-litre EcoBoost petrol.
