FORD FIESTA TO GET ECOBOOST ENGINE
Formula Ford racer yesterday, supermini today - the new Ecoboost engine is everywhere!
There is a mechanical change that might, however. Fresh from that 7:22 'ring lap, the 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine is now available in the Fiesta. Of course, it doesn't have that particular car's 205hp but the more sedate 100hp variant should still make for an entertaining supermini. A 120hp version will also be available - what future for the 120hp 1.6 Zetec S in that case? - and, as has already been proved, the little motor is receptive to a bit of chip tuning too. Which is promising.
The facelifted Fiesta will be another Paris debutant, where more details on pricing and availability will emerge.
