Ford has opened the order books on its new crossover version of its best-selling model – the Fiesta Active.

Three variants are available to choose from. The Fiesta Active 1 costs £17,790 on-road, the B&O PLAY costs £19,190 and Active X  is priced at £20,290.

All three feature more rugged body styling, rough-road suspension with increased ride height, roof rails, front fog lights and 17-inch alloy wheels. There are three selectable drive modes: Eco, Normal and Slippery, while rough-terrain capabilities are managed by a recalibrated hill-start assist configuration for the Fiesta’s electronic stability programme (ESP).

Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment system enables drivers to control audio and connected smartphones using voice commands, or via the tablet-style colour touchscreen, and is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The Fiesta Active B&O PLAY is equipped with a distinctive black roof with black roof rails, and matching electrically operated and heated door mirrors, plus a B&O PLAY premium audio system with 360-degree sound and 10 speakers.

The Active B&O PLAY includes a yellow colour theme and additional features such as cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, a centre console with armrest and illuminated cup holders, plus a four-inch TFT instrument cluster screen with traffic sign recognition.

More equipment is fitted as standard to the Active X, including partial leather upholstery with heated front seats, electrically-folding door mirrors with puddle lights, satnav and DAB digital radio on a larger eight-inch touchscreen, keyless entry and start, and a reversing camera with rear parking sensors.

On-road safety is boosted thanks to lane-keeping technology, rear seat belt minder, rear centre headrest, auto headlamps, heated windscreen and tyre pressure monitoring, while passenger comfort aids include electric windows, rear privacy glass, driver seat height and lumbar adjustment and air conditioning.

Ford’s award-winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine is offered with four different power outputs: 85hp, 100hp, 125hp and 140hp, allied to a new six-speed manual gearbox. CO2 emissions are as low as 105 g/km. For diesel buyers, all three Fiesta Active models are also available with an 85hp 1.5-litre engine, with CO2 levels as low as 96g/km.
