Ford has added a new entry-level trim line to its best-selling Fiesta range.

Called Fiesta Trend, the new specification replaces the familiar Zetec trim as the entry-level spec in the Fiesta family. The new model should arrive in UK showrooms just in time for the next number plate change in September.

In addition to being the top-selling car in the UK for about the last 100 years, the Ford Fiesta is also the top-ranked supermini according to The Car Expert’s unique Expert Rating system, which aggregates reviews from across 15 of the top UK motoring websites. At time of writing, the Fiesta holds an Expert Rating of 85%, which puts it comfortably clear of anything else in its class.

Fiesta Trend is the new entry-level model

In addition to the kit on the previous Zetec model, the Fiesta Trend adds 16-inch alloy wheels, metallic paint and privacy glass as standard.

It also includes Ford’s latest Sync infotainment system with an eight-inch screen, which incorporates DAB digital radio as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.

Priced from £15,995, the new Fiesta Trend is available on both three- and five-door hatchback body styles, and also adds a mesh design for the front grille as well as daytime running lights.

The Fiesta Trend is only available with a 1.1-litre petrol engine producing 85hp, and prices start at £15,990 on-road. Ford is targeting a monthly payment point of £120/month on a four-year PCP, but as always your monthly payment will depend on your deposit, term, annual mileage and exact specification.

Available to order now from your local Ford dealer, deliveries for the new Ford Fiesta Trend are expected to start next month.
