Ford Fiesta LX (New 2009)


So… you need a small car that offers practicality, modern style and thriftiness? Then you’re reading the right review!

Fiesta means concert, entertainment and festivity. Certainly cheerful and well dressed, the all new Ford Fiesta LX is ready for a glitzy night on the town. A girl who can let her hair down will enjoy the zippy, sporty Fiesta flavour. Always looking good, the Ford Fiesta LX turns heads and drives with a confident stride. For one thing, the dolphin streamlining keeps the roofline smooth, first impressions happy and on-road presence larger than life. Fifteen-inch five-leafed alloys give the LX a sporty character that sets the ball rolling. The large headlights are like eyes searching with purposeful intent. The Fiesta’s side skirts and body integrated bumpers offer a chunky and muscly look that other cars in its class don’t embrace. High taillights are vivid red and express personality not boredom.

Open wide the Ford Fiesta LX doors, and the cabin reveals a quality interior boasting plenty of individuality and excitement. Air conditioning (with pollen filter) creates a clean air environment that can allow fresh conversation between occupants to be kept friendly and fun. A vanity mirror for both the driver and front passenger ensures the hair and lipstick are looking good and set just right. I love the centre console’s cup holders. Catching up with a friend for a coffee and chat can be added to the Fiesta LX experience, and if you are both into the latest music then Ford’s Fiesta LX has a quality CD audio system with an input facility for iPod/MP3 function. It’s not hard to use either. Talk the car through the process and it understands you with its amazing voice command function. Keep a sweetie or three in one of the cavernous storage compartments and all your friends will be as happy as Larry when they get to travel to the flicks with you. Speeding past the legal road limit can be embarrassing for all. That’s why you can let the Fiesta LX manage your speed for you with its useful cruise control function. Having friends you can trust – like the Ford Fiesta LX – makes all the difference. Having the Ford Fiesta LX as a companion means that your friends will be encompassed in all the latest safety features that some car manufacturers choose to do with out. Driver and front passenger airbags, an anti-lock braking system (ABS) with emergency brakeforce distribution (EBD are some of the safety features that lead the charge. The latest Bluetooth hands free Voice Control system will impress your passengers no end – and it is easy and fun to use.

There is ample power from a classy 1.6 litre engine mated to a five-speed manual, and the chassis is up to the task for spirited driving. The car is sharp and accurate in the turns and feels well composed on undulating roads. For those of you who might like the auto option, a 1.4 litre engine is available with the relaxed automatic feel.

For a piping hot design and creative innovative flair, the flavoursome Fiesta LX offers all the small car low cost running, and comfort, for an affordable price. The Ford Fiesta LX is extremely easy to live with.

The current model series includes the:

  • Ford Fiesta LX 1.6 litre 5-speed manual
  • Ford Fiesta LX 1.4 litre auto
