Hoping to further tap into the burgeoning Indian auto market, Ford's own CEO, Bill Ford, was on hand in Delhi to introduce the all-new Ford Fiesta sedan. This is Ford's fifth new product in six years for the Indian market, which underscored Mr. Ford's assertion about how important India is to Ford's future success. The new Fiesta will go on sale in the fourth quarter with a Duratec 1.6L four-cylinder and Duratorq 1.4L Turbo Direct Common Rail injection diesel as available powertrains. In order to handle the particular region in which it will be sold, the Fiesta was put through extensive water wading tests to ensure it would be capable of wading through Indian monsoon flooding and the air conditioner was beefed up to more rapidly cool down the cabin.
