I was given a 1.0 demo car while my car was in for paint, it's much quicker than the outgoing 1.6 in real life driving (I've driven petrol ZS's in the past that friends have), you need a lot less input and effort to drive the newer 1.0, as there's a lot more torque, and you don't need to keep the revs up to get anywhere.

 

The 125PS engine needs more revs than the 100PS so you'll find yourself dropping down gears more in the 125, and around town there is very little difference in them, though on the B roads you'll probably be left wishing you had the extra 20 or so horses.

I have the zetec s 1.0 petrol 125 bhp and have only done about 600 miles so far, but I have to say I am

impressed with the performance, it certainly compares to my previous car (Jaguar X type 2.0d sport estate)

The level of trim is excellent for a small hatchback and like others was undecided about going for the ST

but to be honest I don't think I need the extra performance.

thanks for both replies :)

 

b1g_dav3 Yeah i would want the 125ps zetec s, my 1.6 is pretty quick but like you said there is more input from the driver involved to get it to go quick, and it sometimes feels like it could do with more bottom end in the lower rev range.

 

kennypops thats good to hear, how does the engine sound in the 1.0?

The engine is very quiet on tick over but has a lovely growl when you put yor foot down (brilliant)

I can't comment on how it compares with the old 1600 engine, but in the past I have owned a couple of

Fiesta XR2's and to be honest this car feels better, but of course they were old technology compared with

today's Fiesta.

Cars registered in September 2011 are 61 plates.

Registrations are in March and September so all March reg's will have the year 11/12/13 etc and add 50 for the September reg's 61/62/63 etc.

The Mk 7 started to appear in 2008 so will be on 08 plates. The facelift or Mk 7.5 appeared in Jan / Feb 2013 so are 62 plates.

Confusing I know.

Hi Joe

Yes it does sound good and I got frozen white I know it's the new silver to some people and I have to say

it looks good in red, but at my age I think white was the better choice (less boy racer)!!

kennypops maybe i'll end up swapping my mk7 for one then, yeah alot of people seem to be having white cars lately. The speed of the ST appeals to me but i acctually prefer the ZS look wise and to be honest i dont really need the extra power. What MPG do you get in your ZS?

Hi Joe

I have only done about 650 miles so can't give you an accurate figure yet but at the moment it's showing 47.3 mpg, a mix of

town driving with a little bit of motorway.  I think it would be a lot better on a long journey.
