The Ford Fiesta Zetec S Red and Black Edition
These two new Fiestas make an unquestionably bold statement on the road and will give drivers an equally distinctive experience behind the wheel with a sportier version of the 1.0-litre EcoBoost and enhancements to the Fiesta’s acclaimed ride and handlingRoelant de Waard, Ford’s European Marketing, Sales and Service VP
Two new Fiestas that with striking looks, unexpected performance and fuel efficiency.
These bold new cars are available to order now and in dealerships from September. Only available in red or black they are the most powerful 1.0-litre volume production cars ever. How much power can be extracted from Ford’s award winning one litre engines. This is now a 140PS version of the 1.0-litre EcoBoost bringing more power per litre than the Bugatti Veyron and the Ferrari 458 Speciale.
The colours have taken their inspiration from global fashion trends for strong contrasting colours. Available in Race Red, complemented by Panther Black roof and detailing; and Panther Black, with Race Red roof and detailing.
Distinctively Bold Design Statements
The striking three-door models features include – front upper and lower grille surrounds with front bumper aerofoil and mirror caps in contrasting colours, standard black 17-inch alloy wheels. The smart body kit offers front and rear sports bumpers, side skirts and rear roof spoiler; and the contrasting colour roof on both models has been painted to achieve a consistent and higher quality gloss finish than can be achieved using a foil applique or sticker.
Both cars have an execution that’s bold, distinctive and contemporary, but the Red and Black present subtly different personalities that will appeal to different customers. The more provocative car is the Black Edition – its red detailing and the grille surround deliver a high contrast for drivers that want to be noticed. The Red Edition car is highly expressive yet a little bit more subtle for the less exuberant owner.John Mcleod, Ford’s European Vehicle Personalisation chief designer
The models feature black leather sports steering wheel and gear lever gaiter with red stitching; black floor mats with red stitching; and charcoal black sport seats with contrasting red stitching and bolster exteriors.
The Most powerful 1.0-litre volume production car engine ever
The 140PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost features a unique calibration with new settings for turbocharger boost control, valve-timings, intercooler and throttle management to deliver 12 per cent more power and an even sportier driving experience with 0-62mph acceleration in 9sec and a top speed of 125 mph, while still delivering 62.8 mpg fuel efficiency and 104g CO2/km emissions. *
“This new 140PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine now delivers more than twice the power on a litre-for-litre basis than its predecessor – the 1.6-litre 100PS engine that powered the sporty Fiesta S just 10 years ago,” said Andrew Fraser, Ford’s European Gasoline Calibration manager. “I believe this engine sets a new benchmark for power combined with fuel efficiency from a small petrol engine.”
Ford’s 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine was named International Engine of the Year in 2012 and 2013. Like the 100PS and 125PS versions of the 1.0-litre EcoBoost that were chosen by nearly 30 per cent of Fiesta customers in the first quarter of 2014, the 140PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost uses turbocharging, twin-independent Variable Cam Timing and high-pressure direct-injection technologies.
The Ford Fiesta Zetec S Red and Black Editions further enhance driving appeal with revised gear ratios for the five-speed manual transmission and a sport suspension set-up. In addition to new shock absorber and spring settings, the sport suspension uses a stiffer rear axle and revised tuning for the Electronic Power Assisted Steering system delivering greater torque build-up for more steering feedback.
The new Fiesta was launched in late 2012 with dynamic new exterior design, refined interior and advanced Ford technologies including Ford SYNC voice-activated connectivity system, Active City Stop low-speed collision avoidance system, and MyKey; which enables parents to place certain restrictions on young drivers to promote safer driving.
