Ford expands road tax-free Fiesta line up

This new Ford Fiesta ECOnetic now has improved CO2 emissions of little as 95g/km with help from its aerodynamic body styling; lowered suspension, low resistance tires and low friction oil all.

The Ford’s ECOnetic engine is a Dagenham-built, specially calibrated version of the 1.6litre 95PS Duratorq TDCi diesel particulate filter (DPF) which together gives a combined 78.5mpg.

All three of these models, coupled with their low emissions, means that the Ford ECOnetic is road tax free.

Anthony Ireson, Ford of Britain marketing director, said: “Many drivers want to drive a car with lower emissions but still want comfort, performance and an affordable price. Expanding ECOnetic across the series answers that demand, with style.”

The three models of the Ford Fiesta ECOnetic all come with a range of specifications. The Edge model includes Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), air-conditioning, lowered suspension, aerodynamic improvements and low rolling resistance tires.

The Zetec model has 14″ 6-spoke alloy wheels, front fog lights, rear wheel air deflectors, chrome surrounds on headlights, lower front grille, tailgate handle and belt line finisher, three-spoke leather steering wheel and ambient lighting.

The Titanium adds Sony DAB Radio, Bluetooth voice control and USB connectivity, cruise control, front upper grille chrome strip, power-operated folding door mirrors, privacy glass, electronic automatic temperature control (EATC), automatic headlamps and two rear speakers.

DAB radio is now an option on all models and standard on Titanium. Bluetooth, voice control and USB connectivity are available from Edge to Titanium models. Keyless entry is a new convenience addition usually reserved for large cars but now on supermini Fiesta.

The ECOnetic Ford Fiesta range starts from £13,895 for the Edge model, £14,445 for the Zetec model and £15,645 for the Titanium.
