Ford is still holding back a lot of details about the little car.

Ford threw quite a party in Cologne, Germany, for the big debut of the new Fiesta. Unfortunately, the company is keeping details about the next-generation of its popular hatchback a secret for now.

So far, Ford will only confirm that the new Fiesta will be available in four versions in Europe. The Vignale will be the luxury trim; the ST-Line will be sporty; Titanium will go for style; and Active will take some utilitarian cues from crossovers.

Ford’s designers soften the Fiesta’s design slightly for the latest generation. The shape is clearly an evolution of the current model, but some of the edges now become somewhat rounder. The supermini looks a little bigger than its predecessor, but Ford doesn’t have info about the dimensions for us to confirm that yet. Photos show the availability of a massive moonroof that covers both rows of seats, and it looks like the Active gets a slightly higher ride height than the rest of the lineup.

Inside, the new model shows major improvements. The current Fiesta has a nice enough cabin, but the latest version has better styling and high-end materials. The eight-inch infotainment screen seems to float in front of the center stack. The system runs on Ford’s Sync 3 tech. According to Ford, Fiesta buyers will be able to choose more personalization options than ever before, including a high-end B&O Play stereo.

Ford has not yet released any official powertrain details about the new Fiesta. A range of small three- and four-cylinder diesel- and gasoline-fueled engines likely still comprises the lineup, though.

At this time, Ford is also not talking about a specific release date for the new Fiesta in any region, but we expect some markets to have it in the first half of 2017.
