Ford Fiesta No.1 Again in Europe

COLOGNE, Germany, Jan. 31, 2014 – Ford Fiesta was the No.1 selling in Europe again last year. Ford sold 293,663* Fiestas in Europe in 2013, making it the top-selling small car in Europe for the second year running.

“Fiesta appeals as much to the customer attracted by fun-to-drive qualities as it does to the driver who is more concerned with the fuel efficiency offered by the award-winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine,” said Roelant de Waard, vice president, Marketing, Sales and Service, Ford of Europe. “From the dynamic and practical Fiesta ST to the ultra-frugal new Fiesta ECOnetic – and across more than 11,400 variants – small-car buyers are finding a Fiesta that is right for them.”
