Ford unveils the new warm Fiesta

Ford has wheeled out a warm Fiesta in the shape of the Zetec S which will debut at the British Motor Show. The company says that it gives ‘driving enthusiasts a new benchmark in affordable driving fun’, which for the record is 0-60mph in 9.9 seconds and a 120mph top speed.

However if recent Fiestas are anything to go by the Zetec S won’t be all about straight-line speed and should have a decent enough chassis, although we’ll have to wait and see just how good. The car gets a 120bhp Duratec Ti-VCT engine which has 20bhp more than the old Zetec S but still uses less fuel and generates less CO2.

It comes equipped with five-spoke, 16in alloy wheels, projector headlamps, front fog lamps, a deeper front bumper, side mouldings and a rear spoiler. Inside there is a leather steering wheel and bolstered sports seats as well as side airbags and air conditioning.

The car will also be available with a 1.6-litre 90PS Duratorq TDCi and will be launched in the UK in Autumn.
