In 2016, Ford released the Fiesta ST200 limited edition in Europe. On the outside, it featured bespoke grey paint as the only colour available, and unique 17-inch black alloy wheels. Inside, it featured Recaro bucket seats and illuminated tread plates as standard. Power and torque were both increased. As the name suggests, power was up to 200 PS (147 kW), while torque was boosted to 214 lb?ft (290 N?m). The chassis remained the same, but torque vectoring (powered by braking the inside wheels rather than an active differential) helped to reduce understeer whilst cornering. Thanks to the increase in power and also to a shorter final drive ratio, 0-62 mph (100 km/h) was reduced to 6.7 seconds.
Transmission choices include a 5-speed manual, a 4-speed automatic and a dual-clutch 6-speed automatic. The 4-speed automatic is only offered with the 1.4 L Duratec engine. The Powershift 6-speed dual-clutch gearbox is available in North America as an option in addition to the 5-speed manual, which may be sold with a diesel in Europe in the future. This dual-clutch gearbox is also standard on some models in Thailand, and is available as an option in India.
Thailand was the last plant to start assembling Ford Fiesta for ASEAN countries. A 6-speed Powershift dual-clutch transmission was made available as standard transmission initially for the 1.6L Ti-VCT engines in 2011 and 2012 in Thailand, and currently also for the 1.5 Ti-VCT variant (officially from March 2012 onwards). Curiously, the Thai-made Fiesta versions ? both saloon and five-door hatch ? feature a 100 mm pitch circle diameter (PCD) wheel lug mount measurement identical to the Mazda2, as opposed to the 108 mm one as found in other global versions. There were 3 models at launch; 1.4 “Style”, 1.6 “Trend” and 1.6 “Sport”. All models feature ABS, driver airbag, air conditioning, electric windows and mirrors; the top-of-the-range 1.6 Ti-VCT ‘Sport’ and (from 2013) 1.5 Ti-VCT ‘Sport’ models featuring front passenger airbag, alloy wheels and stability control across the range, along with voice command in-car entertainment system and Bluetooth connectivity. Some of the paint options available for the Fiesta in Thailand (such as ‘True Red’ (a colour shared with the new Ford Ranger Pick-up)) are also shared with the Mazda2 (known as ‘Race Red’).
Later, the “Sport+” models with added features was added to the line-up, as was “Sport Ultimate” model with 7 airbags (dual front, side, curtain and driver knee) as standard, which was a first in the subcompact segment in Thailand. They both used 1.6-litre engine with automatic transmission.
In March 2012, the 1.5-litre Ti-VCT engine with 109ps replaced the 1.6-litre Ti-VCT engine in “Trend” and “Sport” but with no change on automatic transmissions.
In Brazil, the Mexican Fiesta is named New Fiesta and is sold both in 4-door version and 5-door version. The Brazilian-made Sigma 1.6-litre 16v engine is flex fuel. The power output and torque are 125 bhp (93 kW) with petrol and 128 bhp (95 kW) with ethanol. mitsubish wallpapers, supercars wallpaper, mercedes wallpapers, Ford Fiesta wallpapers, lotus wallpapers
(Mazda 6)Just as before the Mazda 626 was renamed to Mazda6 Atenza, Ford continues to use the Mazda’s G-series platform for the basis of a number of its CD3 platform coded vehicles, including the Ford Fusion, Mercury Milan, Lincoln Zephyr/MKZ, Lincoln MKX, and a range of SUVs and minivans. Ford also plans to offer a hybrid powertrain on the platform. The official Mazda chassis codes are GG (saloon/hatch) and GY (estate) series ? following the 626/Capella in its GF/GW series.
Mazda’s Hofu Plant in Yamaguchi Prefecture, Japan produced the Mazda6 for international markets from February 2002 to August 2007. In North America, Mazda6 production was handled at the AutoAlliance International plant in Flat Rock, Michigan. The first Mazda 6 rolled off the AAI assembly line on October 1, 2002, one month after 626 production ended. There are also satellite plants building Mazda 6 models in China and Thailand for their respective local markets. Mazda 6 wallpapers#BmwM8 #MazdaRX8 #Porsche919 #volvo #AudiRS3
