2013 Ford Fiesta Facelift to offer the new 1.0-litre Ecoboost engine

Article by Christian A., on June 21, 2012

Ford will offer a facelifted version of the Fiesta, powered by a sub-120g/km 1.0-litre Ecoboost engine, this December. The Ford Fiesta, the top-selling car in the UK, will get an outstanding turbocharged three-cylinder unit. This is already what powers the Focus and is known to be one of the favorite engines of Autocar.

It reduces CO2 emissions by at least 10g/km when compared to the four-pot petrol engines that the current Fiesta uses. This engine also leads to savings in VED tax and fuel economy. In addition, the engine offers a more energetic driving style and gives the Fiesta a nice-sounding three-pot engine note.

The 1.0 Ecoboost is one of several engines in the Fiesta lineup that got a major revamp. The powerplants for the Fiesta-based B-Max mini-MPV also got upgrades. The revised Fiesta will also soon get a 73bhp 1.5 TDCi and a 93bhp 1.6 TDCi, the replacement for the 1.4 TDCi. These engines provide bigger power and lower CO2 emissions to the Fiestas with diesel engines.

Styling will also be improved. It will be given the new grille and headlamps that the Fiesta ST already uses. Spy images of a mule of the four-door Fiesta while testing in Germany have already come out. It provides several hints of how the new front-end styling of the facelifted Fiesta will appear when it debut this September at the Paris show. Ford won’t sell the four-door Fiesta in the UK even with the arrival of rivalling smaller saloons from Seat and Skoda.
