Buyers looking to jump into a Ford Fiesta can look forward to a new Titanium version for the 2013 model year, which replaces the old SES trim (as seen in the images above). The top model throws in Sirius satellite radio, 16-inch wheels, heated leather seats, push-button start and SYNC on top of the niceties found on SE models.

While the base Fiesta starts at $13,200 for the sedan, opting for the five-door will set you back an additional $1,000, plus $795 for destination on either. Titanium guise starts at $18,200 in hatchback configuration, and Ford says it made the switch to maintain trim level consistency across the showroom.

Interestingly enough, the 2013 Ford Fiesta doesn't wear the revised fascia we recently spotted testing. That means the fully refreshed subcompact likely won't show up in dealers for at least another year. The new nose borrows heavily from the lines of the 2013 Fusion and the Evos Concept.

Ford says Fiesta buyers can also expect to find a more streamlined purchase experience with options tied into "logical packages." Check out the full press release below for more information.

2013 Fiesta Overview

Re-Engineering Purchase Experience from Customer's Point of View Makes 2013 Ford Fiesta an Even Better Value

For the 2013 model year, Ford Fiesta offers a re-imagined lineup that now groups content and features into logical packages based on clear purchase patterns, simplifying the car-buying experience for both the customer and the dealer.

This more efficient approach, which is consistent across four-door and five-door models, also will save most customers potentially hundreds of dollars on the final purchase price of Ford's no-compromises, 40-mpg, global small car.

Fiesta highlights

Fiesta S caters to the value-minded consumer, with features from the popular Convenience Package, while keeping keyless entry, auto-locking doors and an upgraded audio system available as options
Fiesta SE adds standard content such as the latest-generation SYNC® system, cruise control, premium sound, and other comfort and appearance features that have proven most popular with the heart of the market
Fiesta Titanium includes premium features customers expect from the top-shelf model, such as heated leather seats, upgraded appearance items, perimeter alarm and push-button start
All include Ford's leading safety and security features, such as:
AdvanceTrac® with electronic stability control
Dual-stage first-row airbags
Driver knee airbag
Side-impact and side-curtain airbags
Four-wheel anti-lock braking system
LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tether Anchors for Children)
Tire Pressure Monitoring System
Anti-theft engine immobilizer

      Starts at $18,200??? It's WAY overpriced as it is (for what you get...which is basically a throw away little cracker box). Ford's arrogant pricing model strikes again!

          Just like that little boy Merlot066, you are completely wrong. Ford is LOSING sales...all of their models that used to sell well (Taurus, Explorer, Focus, etc) are tanking. People don't want to pay the outrageous prices for mediocre Ford products. Ford does not have the brand prestige to charge what they do. It's a Ford...a middle of the road vehicle from a middle of the road brand. They're not horrible....but their not great either. But the Fiesta is crappy little tin can. Putting "titanium" on it is one of the more stupid things Ford has done (but then, there are so many...it's hard to keep track). Either way, the little crap box is overpriced as it is...adding a titanium package and pricing it even higher is just laughable. Typical Ford...can't make a good business decision if their life depended on it.

          Way to not reply to my post. It's all in the numbers. Nissan Versa - 8,643 Chevrolet Sonic - 7,205 Hyundai Accent - 6,166 Ford Fiesta - 6,080 Kia Rio - 4,019 Honda Fit - 3,879 Toyota Yaris - 3,521 Mazda 2 - 901 The Fiesta is selling 4th out of 8 while selling for "outrageous prices". It outsold the #5 car by 2000 sales and is only 2500 sales below the #1 selling Versa. Move to the C segment and the Focus is doing even better. Honda Civic - 33,490 Toyota Corolla - 31,847 Ford Focus - 24,769 Chevrolet Cruze - 19,613 Hyundai Elantra – 18,877 VW Jetta - 12,962 Mazda3 - 8,474 Forte - 7,782 Nissan Sentra - 7,600 The Focus is currently 3rd out of 9 and you can't honestly tell me the Civic or Corolla should be sitting in the 1 and 2 spots. The Focus and Cruze should be battling for the top spot. On to the D segment Impala - 15,879 Taurus - 6,844 Charger - 6,735 Maxima - 4,565 Avalon - 1,959 Azera - 1,053 The Taurus comes out 2nd for sales out of 6. I won't even break down the numbers for the Explorer. The Explorer just had its best sales month since the new model came out. An astronomical 40% of Explorers sold are the top-rung Limited model, about 20% of sales are conquest sales from other brands and about 5% of overall sales are conquest sales from luxury brands. The Ford brand has been #1 for a while now and it doesn't look like that's going to change any time soon. F-series is still handing it to everybody else (even when you combine silverado and sierra sales) and the Mustang has even outsold the Camaro for a few months now. Anything else?

          and yet even though Ford cut back production 30% they are still at or close to the top of their respective classes....sorry that peeves you so much.....

        actually Matt, for a premium compact that borders on good value, coming from a Cooper S and purchasing TWO of these cars i can say the ONLY facet I miss from the S is horsepower. In EVERY other facet the car is as good as or superior. And might I remind you its a TITANIUM, the standard features alone justify the entry price, think thats too much, then get one sans the options and spend four grand less....pretty easy really.

          Mini had brand cachet...Ford and their little tin can does not. Mini can get away with charging what they do. Ford cannot...and their lackluster sales of once great selling nameplates is proof of that. People are not in love with Ford's arrogant pricing or their mediocre appliances.

          sorry matt, thay arent a tin can, quite the opposite actually, very solid, more so than Th cooper with frameless windows for sure....and they are still selling well, although I will fess a lot of potential buyers opted for the bigger Focus as well, which we cant keep our hands on....

        Fit Sport with Navigation - $20,480 - 33 MPG highway (5 speed auto) Yaris SE - $17,960 - 38 MPG highway (4 speed auto) Sonic 2LZ - $19,420 - 35 MPG highway (6 speed auto) Accent SE - $17,870 - 40 MPG highway (6 speed auto) Versa SL - $19,270 - 34 MPG highway (CVT) Fiesta Titanium - $20,090 - 39 MPG highway (6 speed auto) The Fiesta's price is right in line with all the others considering it's the only one that has leather seats and gets better mileage than all but the Accent (though we all know how accurate Hyundai's mileage claims are). We know you can't afford one, get over it.

          heated leather seats, ambient lighting, 80 watt 6 speaker stereo, 16 inch Aluminum wheels, 7 airbags with curtains, intelligent access with push button start, Synch.....I dont have a lot of gripes, I have one auto, one manual, I do beleive they should have made the manual a 6 speed, but hey...car is bulletproof. AND the DSG is absolutely fine....( got that in there before someone attempts to bring up a well documented issue that HAS been rectified, although I had ZERO issues. )

      >>>Ford says Fiesta buyers can also expect to find a more streamlined purchase experience with options tied into "logical packages."<<< NOoooooooooooooo!!!! I *hate* packages. Packages mean that in order to get the one thing you want, you have to cough up the couple grand that the entire package costs. It's a way for them to sell heated seats to Floridians, and sunroofs in Michigan.... Combine the two into a "package" (call it the All Weather Package), and instead of allowing people to pay $500 for one of those, they end up having to spend $1000 on both. Ugh.

        Usually packages are logically put together! I don't get the Fiesta SE value package though. To get sirius radio you need the package which includes different wheels, LED lighting, leather steering wheel and ambient lighting. I can understand the electronics being packaged together because the wiring harness might be a little different and it would be a no brainer to add tech to tech! But wheels and a leather steering wheel when you want a radio? DOH! I think packages are usually logical! Most of the time Option A and the packaged things do go together and the packages actually save you a ton of money. Even though that package I mentioned costs 995. That's actually pretty low dollars for all you get from it. My biggest pet peeve is when I want leather seats in a car from whatever company I shop, I have to pick the most expensive freaking version of every car. That goes for Ford, Honda, Toyo, Dodge, GM, whomever! Then again, I do get the tech and performance stuff too so I guess it does make sense! LOL ARGGGGGGGGGG So what, even though I'll order it anyway, just give me the damn option to minus things! LOL It makes me feel good even though I won't do it!

        Well, it's a far cry from when the original Mustang had dozens of ala cart options and you could customize to exactly what you want. But lets face it, offering options in that fashion is a production nightmare, logistically speaking. You can't blame a manufacturer for wanting to streamline it as much as possible to reduce the number of build combinations. That said, I hate the bundling too. Looking at the Focus ST, for example, to get heated seats, you have to move up to the top-line ST3 with leather Recaros. Aside from the leather, that mandates HIDs, navigation, ambient lighting, sat radio, etc. I don't want any of that - I just want the partial leather Recaros and seat heaters. But I suppose, a clever individual could probably add the content retroactively. But that's beside the point. On the other hand, you can get heated seats in a Fiesta SE just by ordering the winter package, even though that in turn dicates heated mirrors...

      Titanium ore just went down in value. "Step up to our Platinum edition, and we'll put a carbon-fiber-look racing stripe on your slow-as-hell rental car!"

      Oh good, at least one more year of my 2011 Fiesta being the "latest" model. When the refreshed one comes out it always makes the current one seem dated.

      Can't say that I am a fan of that new nose. I really think that's a step backwards in terms of styling. A Titanium version of the Fiesta sounds nice depending upon what it comes with. If its truly "fully-loaded" then I don't think that $18k price sounds too bad, but I get the feeling that it starts at $18k and shoots up even higher than that with even more options.

        • 2 Years Ago
        @Hazdaz
        actually Hazdaz, aside from interior color packages and a Black Sport Appearence pack, the only major option is a Sunroof....everything else is standard......

      Why does this car Not have rear disc brakes?? Frankly at this price it should be. Even if you make it a titanium thing only. Also still some things are missing right now like in dash navi or upgraded sound system. The Yaris S, Accent, and Rio have rear discs, so I don't see why it can't be there.
        merlot066
        • 2 Years Ago
        @Scarboy6693
        Ford isn't the only one to skip the rear discs in this segment. The car weighs 2500 pounds, it's not a big deal in this segment. Things like a 4-speed transmission, however, are absurd. The Fit (which is more expensive and down 4 MPG) has a navigation screen but no leather seats. At least the Fiesta can get turn-by-turn directions through SYNC.
        Dean Hammond
        • 2 Years Ago
        @Scarboy6693
        so, in the case of the Yaris a four speed trans and 106hp take back seat to the importance of OPTIONAL disc brakes?....interesting your priorities, perhaps you could explain the exact importance of rear disc brakes in a car of this size and weight, then perhaps I could agree with you ( doubtful, but give it a shot anyway )

      Ford isn't getting my money until the Ecoboost engine is under that Fiesta hood and if that's not happening until 2014 they may have lost my business. That would make me very sad, because I've been holding out for the Ecoboost engine announcement, but was under the impression we'd see it in 2013.

        Well you technically will see it in 2013. It will most likely go on sale next year as a 2014 model.

      Still no MFT? For 19K (auto trans) there's still only the regular radio included and not even an option for My Ford Touch. I may be one of the few but that's a deal breaker for me, the high price seems useless without it. Also if I were set on this car I'd just wait on the new nose, this car looks kinda cheap with the current styling up front and the updated new-Fusion nose will probably make it look much more upscale. I'll be opting for either a Focus or a Focus X (Escape haha), much nicer looking vehicles IMO

        wrong Chris.....the Stereo is a 6 speaker 80 watt system CD, MP3 compatible. With the standard synch one can also hookup a I-pod or music stick and command away........and you mention high pricing but inadvertently jump a class and the some above to the Focus and Escape...ok, they just happen to be more pricey....just an FYI.

        I would like Ford to replace the radio screen on upper trim levels from the red high-res dot matrix display to the 4.2-inch color LCD display found on Focus models without the MFT, but not put the full MFT into this application.
