The all-new Ford Fiesta is one of the most promising and best looking mid-size sedan in the country, but its sales couldn't pick up as it should have been considering the oomph factor it reflects. To give a push to the sales of the Fiesta, Ford is contemplating the option to provide an automatic gearbox in the car as suggested by the recent spy shot.

Our friends at Team BHP got their hands on the facelifted Ford Fiesta with an automatic gearbox. To give you a brief history insight, Ford launched a petrol variant with automatic gearbox when the new Fiesta was initially launched. But they discontinued it in June 2014 after the sedan got a mild makeover and only a diesel engine with 5-speed manual transmission is on offer now.

Ford named the 6-speed dual-clutch transmission as the 'Powershift' model and will be aimed to compete against Honda City CVT, Hyundai Verna AT, Volkswagen Vento TSI, and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz AT. The Powershift gearbox offers a best in class 10 years maintenance free operation and comes with a dry sump technology.

Ford will re-introduce the Fiesta Powershift with a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine capable of producing 112ps and 140 Nm of torque. The first generation of new-Fiesta offered a mileage of 17kmpl with AT gearshift, but the 2014 facelift model is more aerodynamic. So expect a better efficiency figure from the sedan.
