Ford Fiesta Lighting
Ford Fiesta Forward Lighting Information
2016 - 2018 Ford Fiesta Forward Lighting
The 2016 Ford Fiesta, 2017 Ford Fiesta, and 2018 Ford Fiesta models use the same forward lighting setup as the 2014-2015 models, so nothing has changed in regards to your options for lighting upgrades. A vehicle-specific 2016 Ford Fiesta HID Kit or 2017 Ford Fiesta HID Kit is still your best option for the Low Beam headlights (both kits use H11 HID bulbs, so you could use them for your 2016, 2017, or 2018 Fiesta). Choose the Philips 4300K rebased bulb upgrade for the brightest, whitest, most OEM functional lights.
You can also look at our H11 LED Headlight Kits for a different type of upgrade: 1750 lumens of light output (stable after an hour of running time), crisp white 5500-5700K light, and a simple plug and play installation - these kits make for a great upgrade over your stock H11 halogen bulbs and have a super long lifespan.
For your H1 High Beam bulbs, you can look at performance halogen bulbs options: the H1 Philips X-treme Vision bulbs and H1 Osram Night Breaker Unlimited bulbs are both great solutions to give you brighter light with more colour than your stock lights.
2014 - 2015 Ford Fiesta Forward Lighting
What a car. Ford’s Fiesta ST is a supermini car that was first introduced in 1976. While the rest of the world got to enjoy the vehicle, it was only re-introduced into the North American market in 2010 as a 2011 model. The Ford Fiesta is peppy, economical, stylish, and comes with projector headlights to boot – a perfect candidate for a headlight upgrade.
The 2014 and 2015 Ford Fiesta / Fiesta ST headlights use an H11 halogen bulb for the Low Beams. The stock halogen H11 headlight bulbs simply twist into the Fiesta’s headlights with no additional adapters. As a result, upgrading your Fiesta’s Low Beam headlights is a breeze. If you’re looking to get the brightest possible output then definitely go with an H11 HID kit. XenonDepot H11 HID kits are available in several different color temperatures (kelvin), but for the brightest possible output you’re going to want to go with 4300K. There is no benefit in going with a higher kelvin HID kit unless you’re looking to get more color out of your Fiesta’s Low Beams.
XenonDepot recently introduced a plug+play H11 LED headlight kit, which has proven to be a fantastic Fiesta headlight upgrade. XenonDepot H11 Xtreme LED PRO headlight Kits produce 5500K-5700K light (a crisp white colour), and are rated at approximately 1750 lumens for output. That's a stable figure, achieved after running for an hour, truly representative of the results you can expect.
Now that we’ve sorted out the Low Beam headlight bulb on the Fiesta, let’s talk about the High Beam bulb. In 2014 the Fiesta had a facelift, which meant that a different type of headlight High Beam bulb was used. The 2014 and 2015 Ford Fiesta uses an H1 headlight bulb for the High Beams – unlike the previous generation Fiesta that used a 9005-headlight bulb (we’ll talk about that later). H1 headlights bulbs are rated at 55W, connect into an IEC P14.5s base, and are clear in color. They are extremely short bulbs, and only measure at a 6.73cm max overall length. While XenonDepot does carry H1 HID kits, we typically don’t suggest upgrading high-beams to HID given that HID kits go through a warm-up period when first ignited. This is not ideal if you needed a quick burst of light from your Fiesta’s High Beams.
XenonDepot carries several different performance H1 halogen bulbs by manufacturers such as Philips, Osram, and Nokya. If you’re looking for the brightest H1 halogen bulb, we strongly suggest checking out the Philips H1 X-tremeVIsion +130 headlight bulbs. These bulbs offer approximately 30% more light than your stock fiesta high beam bulbs, and offer 20% whiter color to boot!
2011 - 2013 Ford Fiesta Forward Lighting
Just like the 2014+ Fiesta vehicles, the 2011-2013 Ford Fiesta uses an H11 bulb for the Low Beams. However, in this vehicle a 9005 headlight bulb is used for the High Beams. Take a look at the paragraph above for some of the H11 lighting upgrades we suggest for the Fiesta, but keep in mind that the 2011-2013 headlights do not feature a Low Beam halogen projector headlight.
If you’re looking for an awesome 9005 headlight bulb upgrade, then check out either the XenonDepot 9005 Xtreme LED PRO headlight kit or some 9005 performance halogen bulbs. While we carry 9005 HID conversion kits, we really don’t suggest installing them in your Fiesta’s high beams. 9005 LED headlight bulbs will provide you with instant-on functionality that will simply blow any halogen bulb out of the water. You’re looking at increasing your light output while using less than half the wattage. A standard halogen 9005 headlight bulb is rated at 60W, whereas XenonDepot’s 9005 LED headlight bulbs only use 20 Watts of power! If you’re looking to stay mostly stock, and simply want a little more light and better color, then we recommend checking out the 9005 Osram Night Breaker Unlimited halogen bulbs.
Just like the headlight low beam bulb, the 2011 – 2013 Fiesta uses an H11 bulb for the Fog Lights. Here is some information about H11 halogen bulbs:
- IEC Base: PGJ19-2
- Color: Clear
- Volts: 13.2
- Amps: 4.17
- Watts: 55W
- LED Upgrade: H11 Xtreme LED PRO Headlight Kit
