Initially, Ford Sierra was offered in a body of hatchback, even today, majority of D-class models offered in the sedan body. Ford even released Ford Orion - a sedan in the base of Escort, obviously by doing this they decided to satisfy the need of potential buyers for a sedan, but by 1987, when restyling of Ford Sierra was carried out, Ford realized that there is a demand in the market for Sierra in a body of hatchback and subsequently it appeared in 1987. Before restyling Ford Sierra was equipped with square and rectangular headlights, and turn signals was located in the front bumper.
