COLOGNE, Germany –The new Fiesta Sport Special Edition combines eye-catching styling with impressive performance.
It offers two 1.6 litre engine options, a 95PS Duratorq TDCi diesel with a combined fuel economy of 4.1l/100km (57.4mpg), and a Duratec Ti-VCT 134PS petrol unit which delivers 0-100km/h (0-62mph) acceleration of 8.7 seconds and a top speed of 195km/h (122mph).
“The Fiesta boasts a rich sporting heritage and the combination of the free-revving 1.6-litre Duratec Ti-VCT petrol engine and dynamic, contemporary styling inside and out means the Fiesta Sport Special Edition is a worthy addition to Ford’s roll-call of performance models,” said Roelant de Waard, vice president, Marketing, Sales & Service, Ford of Europe.
“Of course, the option of a 1.6-litre Duratorq-powered version also means customers not requiring such high performance can still enjoy a sporty character with improved economy, while reaping the benefits of the Fiesta Sport Special Edition’s great looks and excellent equipment levels.”
Following hot on the heels of the Fiesta Sport + launched in February (called the 1600S in the UK and Sport S in Germany), the Sport Special Edition includes further enhancements inside and out.
The new model will only be available as a three-door, further amplifying the sporty style.
A full styling kit, complete with lowered side skirts and distinctive spoilers for the front bumper and rear hatch, emphasises the Fiesta’s Kinetic Design, while additional attraction comes courtesy of a silver-coloured front grille surround, aerofoil, fog lamp bezels and polished twin exhausts.
Panther Black alloy wheels complete the exterior upgrades.
Customers will have up to seven exterior paint options to choose from, including the Panther Black option used on the alloy wheels.
The arrival of the Fiesta Sport Special Edition coincides with the launch of a DAB radio option for the Fiesta range.
