Ford Fiesta XR2 Mk II.jpg

Ford Fiesta. 1983–9 (prod. over 2,000,000). 3-door saloon. F/F, 957, 1117 cm³ (I4 OHV), 1297, 1392, 1597 cm³ petrol, 1608 cm³ diesel (4 cyl. OHC). Very 1980s “Eurogrille” (large lights, slanted front end, minimal radiator grille) smoothed out front of Fiesta, bringing it more in line with upcoming future Escort and Sierra facelifts. Drag coefficient drops slightly to 0,40 and better economy through taller fifth gear. New facia, instruments, trim styles. Ford continues to upgrade equipment levels year on year. New 1·3 and 1·6 CVH engines from Escort at launch; diesel 1·6, lead-free 1·3 petrol and return of XR2 by 1984. Lean-burn 1·4 replaced 1·3 in 1986. CTX transmission option (Ford’s version of CVT) in 1987. Still fairly refined despite age but performance and space not class-leading.
