In the early 1970s, the demand for small cars was high enough. Energy crisis in 1973 affected an increase in demand and Ford needed super mini class car in order to compete with Fiat 127 and Renault 5. After long period research and development, prototype was created and served as first Ford Fiesta at the end of 1975.
Family Compact 3 and 5 door hatchbacks of Ford Fiesta have been produced since 1976. The basic power unit for this model was 1.0-liter with 40-horsepower engine, but there were more powerful Fiesta models. For example, at that time, the version Ghia with 1.1-litre engine was capable of a maximum speed of 147 km/h.
The engine is quite compact and the radiator is classically-front, and to ensure the thermal mode at low speed movement it is equipped with an electric fan which heats automatically on the thermostat case.
