What is the Ford Fiesta Active X

For decades, the Fiesta hatchback has been one of Ford’s most iconic models. As a supermini, it checks all the boxes: agile performance, space for four, practicality and innovative technology. The demand for SUV-style vehicles rose in the mid-2010s, and the American brand looked to expand its offering. Ford developed a version of the Fiesta with an elevated ride height, tougher aesthetics and roof rails. This was to appeal to more buyers and rival the likes of the Renault Captur, SEAT Arona and Peugeot 2008. The Ford Fiesta Active was born.

The Active X builds on the Active’s features, offering additional equipment and a more premium interior. It’s based on the Titanium X variant of the hatchback and includes a Bang and Olufsen sound system. It’s the perfect trim level for motorists who want extra practicality without compromising on the compact nature of a city car. The Active X suits young families as well as those with a busy lifestyle and a taste for innovative technology. It has five doors and improved interior space.

Ford Fiesta Active X history

The Ford Fiesta first came to the UK in the 1970s, providing buyers with an economical, three-door solution to urban travel. Its popularity was soon apparent, and by the time the second generation was ready for launch, the car had sold over one million units.

No fewer than six generations followed over the years, with the Mk7 arriving in 2017. It was with this edition that the Fiesta Active became available. With this variant, Ford was responding to the increasing demand for SUVs, both compact and large. The Fiesta Active and Fiesta Active X provided a more commanding view of the road thanks to their added ground clearance. They also offered greater practicality with the addition of roof rails, and a higher entry-level specification than the entry-level Style trim for the regular Fiesta hatchback.

Three engine options are available in the Ford Fiesta Active X. All comprise a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol unit, and outputs include 99bhp, 123bhp and 153bhp. These provide 0-62mph times of 10.8 seconds, 9.5 seconds and 8.9 seconds respectively. All are paired with six-speed manual transmission as standard, while the 123bhp variant can be specified with a six-speed automatic gearbox.

In 2022, updated Fiesta Active and Active X Editions went on sale. These featured an enlarged and raised front grille, slimmer headlights and revised air vents in the lower bumper. Inside, a new 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster was added, which took on a different aesthetic depending on your chosen driving mode. Trail and Slippery driving modes were added to provide optimum traction in challenging conditions.

The Ford Fiesta Active X was on sale until the summer of 2023, when all variants of the Fiesta were discontinued. Ford cited the need for factory space to expand its electric offering as a key reason for the end to production.

Where does the Ford Fiesta Active X sit in the range?

The Fiesta Active X forms part of the overall lineup of Ford Fiesta cars, but it stands slightly apart from other trim levels. This is due to its more SUV-like styling. The Fiesta Active serves as the entry-level trim for this variant, with the Active X sitting above it and offering more equipment. In the context of the entire range, the trim’s specification is equivalent to that of the Titanium X trim.

What features and equipment does the Ford Fiesta Active X have?

The Ford Fiesta Active X has a more dominant stance than the regular hatchback, featuring various styling tweaks that give it SUV-like appeal. Alongside a raised ride height, it boasts 18-inch alloy wheels, black body cladding and silver scuff plates. Other styling elements include rear privacy glass and LED headlights with LED daytime running lights.

When it comes to technology, the Fiesta Active X has an array of features to make driving more connected and convenient. Equipped with an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system, it provides DAB radio, Bluetooth connectivity and sat nav, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. There’s also keyless entry, enabling you to keep your keys in your pocket and push a button to start the vehicle.

The Active X also builds on the Active trim’s spec by adding power-folding door mirrors, part-leather seats and an upgraded climate control system. The headlamps also have a high beam assist function, which automatically switches them between dipped and full beam. This provides optimum visibility at night without dazzling oncoming drivers.
