NEWS - New Ford Fiesta and FiestaVan even more economical

The latest ECOnetic range of Ford Fiesta and FiestaVan's have cut emissions on their 1.6-litre TDCi engine. Despite producing 95PS, it can achieve 85.6mpg on a combined cycle.

The CO2 emissions of the engine has been reduced from an already impressive 95 g/km to a truly remarkable 87 g/km. This means there is no road tax cost, helping reduce running costs.

This significantly improved efficiency has been achieved through the introduction of:

· Auto-Start-Stop
· Upgrades to the 95PS 1.6TDCi engine including friction and combustion improvements and calibration optimisation
· Revised gear ratios
· Smart regenerative charging
· EcoMode
· Improved efficiency of the air conditioning, cooling fan and alternator

Some of the equipment fitted as standard to the Fiesta and FiestaVan ECOnetic including rolling resistance tyres, an aero pack comprising undershield and wheel deflectors and shift indicator light, is carried over on ECOnetic Technology models.

On the car side, there are trims of Edge, Zetec and Titanium, starting from £14,445. The FiestaVan ECOnetic starts at £12,215
