An update for Ford's little Fiesta is on the way, and recent spy shots confirm it will borrow a familiar grille treatment from a former cousin-in-law.

The Aston Martin-esque snout has already appeared on the new Focus ST and the upcoming Mondeo. Next-in-line Fiesta will shortly wear the distinguished front end.

The new nose was also featured on the Geneva Show's Fiesta ST preview, a trick Ford has used in the past to prepare punters for what's coming.

Along with the new grille, the Fiesta will get a new bumper and the ST's nipped-and-tucked headlights, possibly with the addition of LEDs.

These new photos also reveal that the updated Fiesta will feature the same tail-lights worn by the Fiesta ST, with an updated internal design.

The cabin is not expected to come in for any special treatment, but it's almost certain that the newer version of Ford's voice command system SYNC will appear - including, at last, Australian models.

Under the skin, we can likely expect Ford's new 1.0 litre EcoBoost, already found in the European Focus and B-MAX mini-MPV, along with the new EcoSport SUV (the latter recently confirmed for Australia).

The turbo engine can be had in 72kW or 90kW states, and should better the Focus 1.0's official 4.8 and 5.0 l/100km fuel consumption figures.

Expect the 1.0 litre EcoBoost to replace the Fiesta's bigger and thirstier 1.6 litre, which lists power at 89kW and fuel use at 6.1 l/100km.

 

Australia

The new Fiesta should land sometime soon, possibly even at the 2012 Paris Motor Show in September.

We know the 1.6 litre 130kW ST is coming here sometime in 2013, so an Australian debut for the updated Fiesta range could possibly occur later this year or early next.
