The groundbreaking Ford Fiesta is still UK’s favourite hatchback, but the Blue Oval knows that it’s hard to keep the sophisticated Brits satisfied, so they’ve come up with an upgrade package for the car in order to keep it interesting for the buyers. The new Fiesta models are fitted with more equipments as standard, and all of the engines are also optimized to become more efficient.
All newly-ordered Fiestas will have Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), which used to be a 300 quid option, as standard and if you buy the Studio Series trim level, you’ll get new stuff including heated door mirrors and an in-car entertainment bonus of remote steering-mounted controls, aux-in jack and two additional speakers.
The top of the line Titanium models now gets Bluetooth and USB connection as standard, worth around £200. A sophisticated new colour, Ink Blue, is also now available across all models.
All of the Fiesta’s enignes are now in Stage V emission levels, with all diesels fitted with diesel particulate filters (DPF) and on all series including the 98gCO2/km ECOnetic. The 1.4-litre TDCi with DPF also gets a slight power boost to 70 hp.
The range o upgraded petrol engines include:
- 1.25-litre 82PS reduced by 4g to 129g
- 1.6-litre 95PS reduced by 3g to 107g
- 1.6-litre Ti-VCT 120PS reduced by 5g to 134g
