Ford Fiesta Mk2 L (1983-1989)

Ford Fiesta L

Engine Choices

The Fiesta L was available with the 950 OHV, 1.1 OHV, 1.3 OHC (CVH), 1.4 OHC (CVH) and 1.6 Diesel engines.

Interior

The L was fitted with full height door cards and seats, with upholstered front headrests as standard. Early cars featured the 'poverty spec' dashboard, but this was switched out for the high spec version later on, with a analogue clock taking up the instrument cluster space that was used for a rev counter on the more powerful XR2.

Exterior

The L model can be distinguished from the lower spec Popular and Popular Plus models by the wide plastic side mouldings. Early cars were equipped with black metal bumpers with plastic end caps, and later with body coloured bumpers with a plastic rub strip and end caps.
