Ford Fiesta 2013 Sedan and Hatchback models — The Fiesta launches some elements already seen on competing models as the Active City Stop which is activated in emergency stops in the city or the new Ford SYNC with voice command recognition. Photo from Ford.com
The novelties that bring with it this 2013 model are aimed to make it more efficient, more attractive and more technological. This new model takes advantage of technology inherited from its higher-end siblings. The rest of the car, in essence, remains the same as the previous model. One of the key aspects of this new Fiesta is its technology, especially that which is focused on the safety systems.
Ford Fiesta S Sedan picture — The Fiesta also launches a curious security system, called 'My Key', which allows parents to adjust the car's performance and its environment to the individual conditions of their children. For example, you can limit the speed, change the maximum volume of the audio system, alert to the driver about the use of seat belts as well as in case of low fuel and activate permanently the safety and assistance systems.
What's New At The Ford Fiesta 2013 Interior
The steering wheel is different, now it can be leather and that makes it earn points. You'll find in this 2013 model more chrome materials with higher quality. It is surprising to see that the top of the dashboard is padded, something that is unusual in vehicles of this segment. This new model is also more practical. Glove compartments are larger and have a new double bottom in the luggage compartment which favors loading small objects and others heavier. The trunk is not air-conditioned, but seats come with memory, and this is a detail that is valued more.

Ergonomically there are some changes: climate controls, the opening of front doors, the keypad of windows and locks and the seat heating are now controlled more comfortably. Also, in favor of the equipment, it gains more color and variety of fabrics to make it more customizable.
It has several Stereo-CD models, and for all versions the number of buttons is considerable. It will not be a problem for you if you are between 20 and 30 years old, especially if you're used to experimenting with electronic gadgets that exist today. For customers or users with the older age of this new Fiesta will probably need more time to adapt.

The most advanced version that comes with the Ford SYNC system, will delight those with a modern or smartphone. It supports many voice commands and the operation has been improved compared to the previous V2C system. One of the functions that are worth noting is the automatic call 911 when you have an accident, although this one might not be so practical if you have not turned on the Bluetooth or the phone runs out of battery. With the SYNC system, you can also call people existing on your agenda without having to store voice contacts in the car. You can also put through the voice, songs classified by metadata (ID3 in MP3 files).
