Ford Fiesta 1.0 EcoBoost Range Provides More Value

  • Fiesta range extended with additional 1.0 EcoBoost models
  • Addition of PowerShift automatic transmissions in entry-level Ambiente and top-spec Titanium models
PRETORIA, South Africa, March 2015 – Ford Motor Company of Southern Africa (FMCSA) has extended the Fiesta range with the fitment of the award-winning 1.0 EcoBoost engine across a wider range of models, and the addition of a further two 1.0 EcoBoost models equipped with the advanced PowerShift automatic transmission.

“We have extended the superb 1.0 EcoBoost engine to more models to offer our customers improved performance, lower fuel consumption and reduced emissions,” says Tracey Delate, General Marketing Manager, Ford Motor Company of Southern Africa.

“The advanced PowerShift automatic transmission is now available across all three specification grades, ensuring that we’re able to satisfy the growing demand for compact automatic models.

“At the same time, we have revised the pricing of the Fiesta 1.0 EcoBoost models to make it even more attractive. The Fiesta, therefore, offers even better value for money and makes Ford’s popular B-segment hatchback more appealing than ever.”

The 1.0 EcoBoost won International Engine of the Year for the past three years in a row (2012 to 2014), and offers exceptional performance matched to frugal consumption.

It is now also available in the new Fiesta 1.0 EcoBoost PowerShift Ambiente, an entry-level model with the sophisticated six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission for seamless power delivery and rapid shifts. It combines the efficiency, optimised gear ratios and driving enjoyment of a manual gearbox with the smoothness and ease-of-use of a conventional automatic.

Later this year the 1.0 EcoBoost Ambiente with manual transmission will be added to the line-up to complete the Fiesta 1.0 EcoBoost range.

The Fiesta 1.0 EcoBoost Titanium is also now available with the PowerShift transmission, thus providing the option of manual or automatic derivatives across the entire range in Ambiente, Trend and Titanium versions.

In the case of the five-speed manual derivatives, the 1.0 EcoBoost delivers 92kW of power and 170Nm of torque. Combined cycle fuel consumption is rated at 4.3 l/100 km* with a CO2 emissions rating of 99 g/km*.

On the PowerShift derivatives, the torque remains unchanged at 170Nm, with power rated at 74kW. Average fuel consumption is 4.9 l/100km* with CO2 emissions of 114 g/km.

All models are sold with a four-year/120 000km comprehensive warranty, four-year/60 000km service plan, three-year/unlimited km roadside assistance and five-year/unlimited km corrosion warranty.

Service intervals are every 20 000km on the EcoBoost petrol engines, and 15 000km for the TDCi derivatives.
