It is Fiesta Friday at Rivervale!
It’s the best-selling car here in the UK of all time, we just can’t get enough of the Ford Fiesta and it keeps getting better and better!
Three new sparkly Fiestas with new 65 registration plates have arrived here at Rivervale Leasing today for three lucky staff members…not one of those was me...I’ve yet to speak to the boss, but I’m guessing mine’s on the way Vince?!?!?!. They now just have an agonising wait until Tuesday before they get out on the road! Which just means I have time to nose around!
So what has the Ford Fiesta got that makes it so popular? In one word …Everything!
It’s compact enough to squeeze into city parking spaces and tough enough to take on the motorways. Ford’s Electric Power Assisted Steering means at low speed the steering will be lighter helpful when you’re wiggling into those tight spots, yet at higher speeds your steering will be firmer giving you greater control.
When you’ve found that perfect parking space the rear view camera will automatically start displaying on your 5” colour screen and for extra ease you can opt for parking sensors so not one inch of your fiesta’s exterior will get scratched. Ford’s Home Safe Headlights will even stay on for 30 seconds when you’ve parked to light the way to your front door!
Ford SYNC keeps you connected on the road. You can play music via a USB, MP3 player, iPod or even just stream directly from your mobile via Bluetooth. Making and receiving calls can be controlled by voice commands, even your text messages can be read aloud and responded to.
Getting going has never been easier – if your hands are full, or your key is hidden in the bottom of your handbag, it’s not a problem - the Ford Fiesta has keyless entry and keyless start! There’s cruise control for those long endless roads and with the Ford 1.0 EcoBoost petrol engine you could achieve fuel efficiency up to 65.7 mpg. In Ford Eco Mode your fiesta will analyse all aspects of your driving from when you change gear to how you brake and give you prompts on how to drive more efficiently such as a gear change indicator. Combine this with Ford’s Stop/Start technology and you will be making fewer trips to the petrol station.
The Ford Fiesta is ready to take on the toughest winter weather … I know you don’t want to think about it, but those cold dark days are coming! With Quickclear your front and rear screen with be frost free in seconds, even if the outside temperature is still below 0! If you’re a bit chilly on the school run or way to work just turn on your heated seat for instant warmth – and there are cup holders so don’t forget your coffee!
Of course there is one drawback with the Ford Fiesta … You will forever have people who want to borrow it. You can lend out your car worry free with Ford MyKey. You can set maximum speeds, seatbelt reminders and even audio levels, so your Fiesta and its occupants return to you safely. And with integrated SatNav that responds to the latest traffic conditions there’s no excuse for not being home on time!
The exterior is sporty and stylish with a choice of 12 colours – Deep Impact Blue, Panther Black, Copper Pulse, Midnight Sky, Candy Blue, Hot Mustard, Moondust Silver, Blazer Blue, Race Red, Frozen White and Candy Red so there is a colour for everyone!
It’s not just our Rivervale Staff members who can enjoy a new Ford Fiesta. There is never a better time than September to get a good deal and order a new car, we have a fantastic Fiesta deal that could see you driving your new car in just 2-3 weeks …
To Jake, Matt and Elisha – Enjoy your new Fiestas … I’m really not too jealous!
