We just happened to enter the Ford dealer who shared with some interesting piece of news. Ford will launch the new Fiesta Automatic in the Indian market very soon. The company had unveiled the car in November 2011.
The new Fiesta may not have been very big success when one looks at the sales but after having driven the car we must say that this is one the best cars we have driven recently.
the car gets a dual clutch Powershift automatic gearbox that is a segment-first feature. This type of gear box is usually found on the premium cars like the Skoda Superb and VW Passat. Well the sad news is that the automatic option is available only on the petrol variant.
Powershift dual clutch six speed automatic transmission will give the balance of performance and good fuel economy.
Features of the Powershift automatic gear box:
Hill start: it helps keeps the brakes engaged for 2.5 seconds after you lift off the brake pedal
Neutral coast down – It helps to disengage the clutches when the brakes are applied for greater efficiency and precise clutch slip
