Launched in 1995, the 1996, 1997 and 1998 Fiesta year models became some of the biggest global selling Ford cars ever. Its new interior and exterior styling was a complete break from previous Fiesta design, however the vehicle dimensions remained almost identical to the previous Fiesta generation due to the use of the same Ford B build platform used across both generations.

In 1995 the 4th generation Fiesta received a facelift with a Focus-inspired face, new bumpers and wheel designs that brought the vehicle range into the new look and feel of the then current Ford design ethos.
