Comparing the Ford published engine specs we have the following:

Current 1.6 120
120 PS: Max Torque 152 NM : Max speed 120 MPH : 0-60 9.9 sec : 31-62 12.6 sec :
Economy MPG 36.2 / 62.8 / 48.7
Co2 132 = £120 Road tax PA

New 1.0 Ecoboost 125
125 PS : Max Torque 200 NM : Max speed 122 MPH : 0-60 9.4 sec : 31-62 12.2 sec :
Economy MPG 53.3 / 76.4 / 65.7
Co2 99 = Zero road tax PA

Looks faster, more efficient and cleaner to me in every category. I want one! :-)

I guess a 1L engine has a certain stigma attached to it for being monumentally underpowered, but like many things with evolving technology they can squeeze more out of less.

It would be good to know what the @ XXXX RPM figures are for those stats though.

1.6 VVTI 120
152 Nm at 4000-4500 rpm

Ecoboost 1.0 125
170 Nm from 1,300–4,500 rpm and 200 Nm (148 lb·ft) on overboost

You are right about the stigma.
Back in 1988/89 I had a brand new Escort RS Turbo that produced around 132 PS and max torque 180 Nm @ 2750 RPM - shows how things move on!

It's going to keep up with most cars on the road, and there's never been a Fiesta that's been bad to drive - they are always best in class. It is clearly better than the current 1.6 in terms of performance, you'll pay zero road tax and a tank of petrol will get you further! What's not to like about that? :P

I agree the concept of a 1.0 litre sounds awful and will have a stigma, but only Ford fanatics are going to know what engine is in it ;)
