About Ford Festiva

Ford Festiva, as a subcompact car, was produced by the South Korea's automobile manufacturer Kia Motor Corporation and Japanese multinational automaker Mazda Motor Corporation but marked by the great American multinational automaker Ford Motor Company from 1986 to 2002. Its name Festiva derived from the Spanish word for "festive". Due to poor reception of Fiesta in the United States market, though witnessed a huge worldwide success, Ford Festiva was introduced to save this situation. Although being manufactured through two generations, the second-generation Ford Festiva was actually called as Ford Aspire, here we only introduce the first generation.
The first-generation Ford Festiva (WA; 1986-1993) was designed by Mazda at the request of parent Ford. It was first introduced in Japan as a 3-door hatchback and did not show in the North American market until 1987 for the 1988 model year. North American version of Ford Festiva was offered in three trim levels: L, L Plus, and LX. For the 1999 model year, the L Plus and LX models were combined into a single GL trim level, which got a sport package for the 1992 model year. During its five years in North America, Ford Festiva was powered by a 1.3 L carbureted inline 4-cylinder engine driving the front wheels through a 4-speed manual or an optional 3-speed automatic transmission.
