The Fiesta Van has returned to Ford’s commercial vehicle lineup, but it still won’t be heading to North America.
Based on the all-new Ford Fiesta, the Fiesta Van serves as a stylish, compact, and economical vehicle for businesses that don’t need something larger like a Transit Connect. The three-door hatchback boasts approximately 35 cubic feet (1 cubic meter) of cargo space, with a load length of almost 4.3 feet (1.3 meters), and a gross payload of around 1,100 pounds (500 kilograms). To ensure the Fiesta Van can take a beating, the load space has a composite and mesh full bulkhead, durable sidewall trim, and a tough rubber floor covering four tie-down hooks.
Like the standard Fiesta, the Fiesta Van is packed with the latest technologies including Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment system. That means it’s compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, all controlled through a floating, tablet-inspired eight-inch touchscreen. Business customers also benefit from the new FordPass Connect onboard modem for connectivity while on the go.
There’s even a Fiesta Van Sport model, which adds unique front and rear design treatment, color-matched rocker panels, and up to 18-inch alloy wheels. Inside, the Sport trim gets revised seats and trim materials, unique steering wheel, pedals, and gear lever, while adjustable speed limiter and lane keeping system are standard.
