Ford Fiesta Upgraded for the UK Market
All the models in the Fiesta range now come with Electronic Stability Program (ESP) in standard (the ESP was previously sold as an 300 pounds option). The Studio equipment level receives heated door mirrors and a number of in-car entertainment features: remote steering wheel-mounted audio system controls, auxiliary entry (jack) and two additional speakers.
The top of the range Titanium models’ standard equipment list now includes Bluetooth and USB connection, a feature that was previously marketed as a 200 pounds option. In addition to that, a new color, Ink Blue, has been added to all the models in the line-up.
The Fiesta engine range has also been improved, as all the units now meet the Euro V emissions level. The entire diesel line-up has been fitted with diesel particulate filter (DPF). The 1.6 liter TDCi powerplant with DPF now produces 95 hp (up from 90hp), while the 1.4 liter TDCi with DPF comes with a 2hp increase, offering 70hp.
The petrol engine line-up now posts a reduction in CO2 emissions: the 82hp 1.25 liter emits 129 grams of CO2/km (down by 4grams), the 95hp 1.6 liter emits 107 grams of CO2/km (a 3 grams reduction) and the 120hp 1.2 liter Ti-VCT cut its emissions by 5 grams to 134 grams.
“Safety, technology and powertrain upgrades are being added to the highly successful Ford Fiesta range. Already number one in the UK sales charts, the Fiesta range is being further enhanced to keep Britain's favourite small car in pole position,” stated the press release.
