It was equipped with a four-cylinder 1.1-liter engine, that was combined with a four-speed, manual gearbox. Its suspension was upgraded, while it had a bigger ground clearance, compared with the normal Fiesta.

The Fiesta Tuareg concept was unveiled at the 1979 Geneva auto show, but unfortunately it never passed in production.
