The test driver on this occasion appears to have taken the Fiesta facelift past its limits and crashed it into deeper snow. It meant a bit of assistance was required by a rescue vehicle to get the prototype back on the road.

The new generation Ford Fiesta is entering its fourth year of sales following its showroom introduction in the middle of 2008. Now, would be an ideal time to give it a mid-cycle refresh and our spies have caught a prototype while it was out testing in cold weather conditions.

The test driver on this occasion appears to have taken the Fiesta facelift past its limits and crashed it into deeper snow. It meant a bit of assistance was required by a rescue vehicle to get the prototype back on the road.

The new prototype looks almost identical to a previous version that was caught earlier this year. It wears a bit of camouflage over the front end that attempts to hide the restyled front fascia which features a set of LED headlights.

Engine options will definitely include a 1.0 liter Ecoboost unit that generates 80hp ( 59 kW / 81 PS ) and it is likely to be complimented by tuned configurations that generate 99hp (74 kW / 100 PS) and 123hp (92 kW / 125 PS).
