Ford announce the return of the Fiesta Van

and it looks better than ever​

With a surprise unveil at the Birmingham CV Show, no one expected, including the Ford dealer network, to see the return of the Fiesta Van with no prior notice. However this only added to the excitement!

With the continued popularity of the award-winning all-new Fiesta, including the arrival of the all-new Fiesta Active and ST in the Spring of 2018, it was inevitable that the Fiesta Van would return with such high demand, and believe us, it is better than ever.

We've compiled the top things to know about the new Fiesta Van which you can read below. However, to find out more or register your interest, why not contact us in branch today to keep up with the latest information including official release dates?

1. One of only two Commercial Vehicles to feature the new FordPass Connect Modem

The all-new Fiesta Van and all-new Transit Connect are currently the only two commercial vehicles with FordPass Connect on-board. This is a new modem being introduced to the Ford car and commercial range, which for businesses, will provide enhanced productivity and convenience. So what is FordPass Connect and what benefits does it provide to businesses?

FordPass Connect is an innovative technology access via the FordPass mobile app allowing business users to make vehicle ownership simpler than ever. With benefits such as turning your vehicle into a Wi-Fi hotspot and Live Traffic Alerts, the mobile app also provides:

  • Vehicle Health Alerts - advising when service action may be needed, such as low oil, failed bulbs, and more.
  • Vehicle Status - allows owners to check fuel levels, alarm status, tyre pressure and more.
  • Door lock and unlock - remotely control the accessibility of your van and the load compartment.
  • Vehicle locator - Can't find where you've parked? This will no longer prove as a problem.

The FordPass app is flexible, so you can connect to as many vehicles you may own via a single or multiple accounts.

2. Practicality doesn't mean it can't be stunning Inside & Out

Incorporating the all-new Fiesta's head-turning good looks, the Fiesta Van provides all the practicality you would expect from a compact van whilst not compromising on style. On the outside, the Fiesta Van features the Fiesta's iconic new LED headlamps and new shape. On the inside, using hard-wearing materials, the cabin has been re-imagined to provide a smart and comfortable environment.

You'll also find the latest interior technologies including Ford SYNC3, providing connectivity and entertainment no matter what the day has in store for you.

3. Latest driver assistance technologies

Businesses can take advantage of the convenience and efficiency delivered by the all-new Fiesta Van. Available with a plethora of driver assistance technologies to enhance comfort, convenience and safety, the Fiesta Van features Ford’s Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection emergency braking system, Adaptive Cruise Control and Blind Spot Information System.

There are daily challenges that urban drivers have to overcome regularly, from tricky parking to constant varying speed limits; it's the small things that can ruin a journey or cause frustration. However, the Fiesta Van is on hand. With convenience technology such as Active Park Assist, which will park your vehicle for you, to Traffic Sign Recognition and Adjustable Speed Limiter to help avoid speeding fines, you can put the fun back into driving.

4. Compact yet spacious

Whilst the Fiesta Van is the most compact van available in the Ford Commercial Vehicle range, it still provides a surprising amount of load space. ​Inside the three-door body, there is a practical load compartment capable of carrying approximately 1.0 cubic metre of cargo with a load length of almost 1.3 metres, and gross payload of around 500 kg. 

Trimmed with a composite and mesh lining, durable side wall, and rubber flooring, the Fiesta Van has a tough, protected interior. Along with the grippy bed, you'll also find four tie-down hooks so that you can secure your load and ensure it doesn't shift whilst you're on the move.

5. Business doesn't need to be boring

The Fiesta Van is available with a Sport derivative, perfect for business who don't stick to the ordinary.

Providing the ultimate dynamic style for any business, the all-new Fiesta Van Sport features a unique front and rear design as well as colour-coded rocker panels. Plus with a choice of alloy wheels, up to 18-inch alloy wheels, you can customise your Fiesta Van to your liking.

It doesn't stop at the exterior. Inside you'll discover revised seats and trim materials, plus unique steering wheel, pedals and gear lever, PLUS have Ford SYNC3 with 8" touchscreen, Adjustable Speed Limiter, and Lane Keeping System fitted as standard.
