2022 Ford Fiesta Active Prices, Release Date And Prices
2022 Ford Fiesta Active Prices, Release Date And Prices – The design of the updated 2022 Ford Fiesta Active previews Ford’s new family face, which will feature on all of the brand’s upcoming models.
The grille is larger and more angular than before, and Ford’s blue oval badge is now housed within it, rather than above it. The bonnet has also been resculpted, and the nose of the car raised, with new LED headlights giving a meaner look.
The Ford 2022 Ford Fiesta Active has long been Britain’s best selling car, but so far in 2021 this hugely popular supermini – now in its seventh-generation – has been trailing its perennial rival, the Vauxhall Corsa, in the new car registration charts.
Sound timing then, for an important mid-life update. In a bid to claw back some ground, 2022 Ford Fiesta Active has unveiled this: the new, facelifted Fiesta, and it’s armed with revised styling, interior updates and additional tech.
Prices start at £16,620 and it’s on sale now ahead of first deliveries early next year. Sporty ST-Line models receive a more aggressive front bumper, with a gloss black honeycomb mesh grille.

2022 Ford Fiesta Active Redesign
The flanks of the 2022 Ford Fiesta Active remain untouched, although there are seven new wheel designs to choose from. At the rear, the taillights have been darkened, and there’s a new contrasting matte and gloss black diffuser finish.
Two new colours have been added to the paint palette; Boundless Blue and Beautiful Berry. The new 2022 Ford Fiesta Active sees a slightly restructured trim line-up, comprising Trend, Titanium, ST-Line and Active variants, along with the ST hot hatch.
The luxurious Vignale model has been scrapped. Instead, Vignale now refers to an option pack available with Titanium, ST-Line and Active models, which brings 17 or 18-inch alloy wheels, premium Sensico synthetic leather seats and new interior trim pieces.
Aside from this, the new 2022 Ford Fiesta Active retains the same cabin architecture as before, but with new infotainment and safety technology. The most important addition is a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel, which can be configured by the driver and features changeable graphics that correspond to the car’s drive mode.
These consist of Normal, Sport and Eco, with the 2022 Ford Fiesta Active gaining Trail and Slippery modes. Also among the updates is a ‘Wrong Way Alert’, which uses a camera mounted to the windscreen in conjunction with the car’s navigation system to warn the driver if they are travelling against oncoming traffic.
Matrix LED headlights can now be specified with the 2022 Ford Fiesta Active, which block individual light rays to avoid blinding oncoming cars when the high-beam is enabled.
2022 Ford Fiesta Active Features
This feature is included as part of the Ford Fiesta Active’s optional SYNC 3 infotainment system, which goes unchanged. It uses the same 8-inch touchscreen as before, and features Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a 180 degree rear view camera.
Further options include a wireless smartphone charging pad and a 575-watt B&O stereo. Last year, the Ford Fiesta Active received an updated powertrain line-up that includes a pair of mild-hybrid petrol units.
The revised model utilizes these existing engines, which means the engine line-up begins with a 1.0-litre EcoBoost three-cylinder motor producing 99bhp, paired to a six-speed manual transmission.
Claimed efficiency figures are 45.2mpg and 118 g/km of CO2 on the WLTP cycle. Two 48-volt mild-hybrid options sit above this, and also use a 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine – this is combined with a belt-driven starter/generator and a 48-volt battery pack for improved performance and efficiency.
Driver assistance and safety kit includes a new “wrong way alert” which sounds an alarm if you start driving the wrong way along the motorway, plus adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assistance and automatic emergency braking.
The Ford Fiesta Active’s starting price has risen slightly to £16,620, making it a more expensive choice than the rival Skoda Fabia, but cheaper than the Vauxhall Corsa and Volkswagen Polo.
The same is likely to be true if you buy on a PCP finance deal, as many buyers will. The rear LEDs look aggressive with black surrounds and a hook-type brake light design.
The rear exhaust and the body-colored faux diffuser look great with the ST-Line. Ford Fiesta Active is offering either a 3-door or a five-door variant of the Ford Fiesta Active.
