Jennings Ford, part of the multi-award winning Jennings Motor Group, operates branches at Eslington Park in Gateshead, Yarm Road in Stockton and Cargo Fleet Lane in Middlesbrough - where the latest model has taken centre stage.

Fully trained members of sales staff are available across the group’s Ford branch network to give advice, arrange test drives on the latest model and other models in the range, and talk customers through the purchasing process and finance options available.

Barry Fearon, sales manager at Jennings Ford in Gateshead, said; “We are delighted to be able to offer the all-new Fiesta model, which is expected to maintain its domination of the supermini market, as a result of offering improved space, better specification, smart styling and greater safety.”

Retaining its familiar front grille, the all-new Fiesta has inherited the same tail light design that currently features on the Focus model, and despite its size being similar to that of the current seventh generation model, passengers can take advantage of additional head and leg room inside the cabin.

Available in a number of derivatives, customers can choose from the entry-level Style, rising to the Zetec and Titanium models, and the range-topping Vignale and hot ST Line versions.

Those considering opting for the entry level model can take advantage of standard specification such as, body coloured bumpers, manual air conditioning and an AM/FM radio with a 4.2-inch TFT screen and Bluetooth connectivity.

A suite of driver and safety assistance features, including lane keeping assistance, hill start assist and automatic headlamps, has also been fitted in the entry level model.

Zetec and Titanium models come with Bohai Bay Mint or Chrome Copper interior trims, and include a design-focused B&O PLAY sound system including 10 speakers, a subwoofer and a central speaker on top of the instrument panel.  These models also get an upgraded 8-inch touch screen infotainment system and sat nav.

Customers can choose from a wide range of engines, with Ford’s 1.0-litre three-cylinder EcoBoost turbo petrol offered in 99bhp, 123bhp and 138bhp.  A six-speed manual gearbox ensures CO2 emissions are kept as little as 95g/km.  There is also a six-speed automatic option with steering wheel paddles for the 98bhp model. 

Other models available in the Ford range include the KA+, Focus, B-MAX, EcoSport, C-MAX, Grand C-MAX, Kuga, Mondeo, Mustang, S-MAX, Galaxy and Edge.  There is also a variety of range-topping Vignale models - Ford’s premium car range.

Customers who purchase a new car at Jennings Ford branches can also take advantage of a range of aftersales facilities, with service, MOT, accident repair and parts departments’ available at all three dealerships.
