Ford officially announces the introduction of the 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine to the range of the facelifted Fiesta.
Ford says that the tiny EcoBoost unit is capable to deliver a fuel economy of 40mpg in the United States.
The 2014 Ford Fiesta comes with standard equipment such as MyFord Touch infotainment system, MyKey, a 6.5-inch touch screen with voice control and Bluetooth connectivity. The three-cylinder engine delivers a 20% improved fuel consumption and better CO2 emissions by 15%.
“For Ford’s new three-cylinder engine to be successful, it would have to be a no-compromise engine. It could not force customers to choose between performance versus economy or responsiveness versus smoothness,” says Ford.
In conclusion, if you are looking for a frugal model and you are not very concerned about the performance, the new Ford Fiesta with the EcoBoost engine should be your choice.
