New Econetic diesel fuel consumption... -.- 3.3l/100km combined.... Seriously, it would be more expensive to travel with a bicycle than with that car....

What I found quite interesting, is that the 1.6TDCI is more economical, more powerful and more eco-friendly (lower CO2), than the 1.5TDCI.

And more expensive I guess.

I think I will go for the ecoboost 125 PS version in a Titanium.

Which begs the question, is there any point in it? :P

Anybody notice the removal of the 1.6 petrol 120 bhp engine? It's been replaced with a powershift only option with 105 bhp. Looks like the new 1.0 eco boost engine (125 bhp) will replace the current 120bhp engine.

A zetec S with a 1 litre engine :blink:

Cost is the only thing I can think of, but I can't see a big enough saving to justify it.

I noticed that too. Kinda assumed anyone wanting a speedy 1.6 manual petrol will be steered towards the ST instead.

I've always been sceptical about the 1 litre engine, but people rave about it in the Focus. I bet it'll be better suited to the Fiesta and probably have a unique character to it ;)

True. Perhaps with the efficiency of the petrol Ecoboost engines, it was decided a smaller diesel wasn't viable. Is the 1.5TDCi a brand new engine or is it just a detuned 1.6? That might explain it?

More power and better economy, what's not to like?

Agreed - and zero road tax on a 125 PS engine! :-)

I'd worry about "guts" from a 1L engine. Say when you give it a hill or more people to carry.....

Bet it wont have better fuel ecomony when you drive it at speed ;) That turbo is gonna suck up the fuel under hard acceleration. Around town, im sure it wont be better.

VW have a very smart engine coming out next year in the Polo. It's a 1.4 turbo/supercharger with little road tax. 140bhp, and 0-60 in around 7.9 seconds. To me, that sounds more upto the job around town

I think the 1.0 ecoboost in the Fiesta will be the major seller , just like the Focus they are removing the 1.6 engine , it should be much better choice in the Fiesta.

I like the idea of the 1.0litre Zetec S! It should sound quite nice too :)

I do miss the n/a power delivery of the 1.6.... with no passengers on board .... not going up a hill.... above 3500rpm... but this should be less gutless for more of the time.

Going to miss those street pack alloys though! Even if the new 17" options are very nice :rolleyes:

Despite its tiny capacity this will be a lot better low down and in gear than the 1.6 petrol. Becauses its blown it will have a higher torque figure than the 1.6 and peak torque will likely arrive from around1500 rpm (compared to the 4000 rpm of the engine it replaces) it will have to work less hard under load.
