Ford Releases Warmer Fiesta S1600

Ford’s UK division announced that it will unleash a new warm (the company calls it “hot”) hatch this month, with the company set to introduce a more powerful incarnation of the Fiesta S1600.

The latest version of the Fiesta 1600 manages to squeeze 134 hp and 160 Nm of torque out of its 1.6 liter Duratec Ti-VCT naturally aspirated petrol unit. This allows the vehicle to play the 0 to 60 mph game in 8.2 seconds and offer a top speed of 120 mph (193 km/h).

Only 500 customers will be allowed to enjoy the charms of the swift Fiesta, with the pricing starting at GBP15,895 (on the road price).

The vehicle is based on the three-door 120 hp Fiesta Zetec-S and comes with multiple sporty exterior elements, with the list including a bodykit that includes a fresh front bumper with flared lower valence panel, extended side skirts, large rear spoiler and rear diffuser, and with 17-inch white alloy wheels. The car can be dressed in Frozen White or Performance Blue, both liveries coming with contrasting stripes.

The interior has also been gifted with multiple goodies, such as heated, stitched leather sports seats with standard side-airbags, leather steering wheel, handbrake cover and gear-knob, as well as motorsport-branded floor mats and scuff plates.

"The sportier character of these limited-edition Fiesta S1600 models will appeal to all driving enthusiasts. The previous S1600 was rapidly sold out which shows how much fun these affordable new Fiesta models are – and now with more power and performance these latest versions are set to be an even greater hit," said Andrew Paton, Ford of Britain's Fiesta product manager.
