Ford Fiesta Ground Clearance

Ground clearance (also famous as Ride height) measures the length between the minimum mark of the car’s chassis and the spot of the tires’ touch with the even area. Nevertheless, the maker of the model might apply little tricks to the typical measure to come up with enticing estimation suggesting the valid length from the shock absorbers, the engine oil pan or the muffler to the terrain might be lower than stated in the printed leaflet.

It is no wonder since choosy shoppers go for a lifted ground clearance to bypass issues when parking near the high edges or running through the rugged landscape. The exact ride height of the model fluctuates between 140 to 167 mm based on the year of production and trim. Take into consideration that a well- filled vehicle will definitely lose about 1 inch of ground clearance.

Fortunately, the model ground clearance can be increased by using spacers for shock absorbers to make the car remain higher off the ground. While getting a higher model, you sacrifice a bit of the former balance and flexibility driving fast. Instead model ground clearance can be lowered for the sake of upgraded handling and stability.

There a number of ways to increase ground clearance. When it comes to lifting or lowering your Ford Fiesta you can choose between bigger tires, a leveling kit, coil spring assisters, coilovers, airlift suspension, suspension lifts, etc.
