Fiesta’s at The Palace

Fiesta’s at The Palace

Road tripping is my favourite mini-adventure, so when Ford invited me to join them at the launch of the new Ford Fiesta, little did I know that I was in for a bucket list treat.

The destination was a secret, right up until I got behind the wheel of the styling new Ford Fiesta!

A car designed to Go Your Way! A car to match your attitude as you make your way up the ladder – and do it in style! And, since the new Ford Fiesta is all about making your way into the world of awesomeness, Sun City was the perfect destination to launch this fierce and feisty little car.
