Ford Fiesta Black Edition on the Go with A Tiny Ford Engine

Ford Fiesta range gets 1.0-litre turbocharged engine but does it matter?

Ford Fiesta gets an entirely new look with the black edition but the focus point is still its power unit and under the bonnet it has undergone massive changes. It offers a 1.0-litre 3-cylinder engine which is a tiniest power unit available in the most modern Ford engine line-up. It is a turbocharged engine and replaces the historic engine line-up which consists of 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre 4-cylinder petrol engines.

It is offered in three power variants from 100bhp, 125bhp and 140bhp.  This engine is very common these days and every third Ford engine introduced in the UK in 2015 was 1.0-litre turbocharged 3-cylinder unit. However, the UK has lost one cylinder but got a turbocharger to cover this lost.

What is an EcoBoost engine?

Since their launch in 2011; tiny EcoBoost engines are regularly making their position in the market and winning awards internationally. Although there are several three cylinder engines in the market from several automakers but the award winning unit is the EcoBoost 1.0-litre. It has won five awards for the engine of the year for five consecutive years.

Top-Quality Engine

With a definite guarantee, it’s an exceptional quality engine. With a huge unfold of torque on hand, this small-potential engine punches above its weight, bringing a best level of flexibility through the gears. This prevents you from having to change down one or two at all times and the ancient days of trying to find second gear ratio on inclines have grown to be a distant memory.

Within the Zetec S, the historical 1.6-litre petrol engine can be extra beneficial to for greater revs, but the 1.0-litre makes up for this with little or no turbo lag, constant low-to-mid 40mpg and decent refinement with the same power as of the 1.6-litre units. It sounds good too, even though with modern-day cars heavily dressed with sound deadening, we do desire the thrummed off-beat engine noise should be just a little louder in the cabin.

What about it’s rivals?

As it currently stands, downsizing to small-sized turbocharged engines appear to be a necessary activity. For the moderation of the testing team, the 130hp 1.2-litre PureTech in Peugeots and Citroens is the closest rival to this tiny engine. Kia’s 1.0-litre engine with 120bhp seems to be more joyous to rev, while the Vauxhall Corsa feels even more muscular with 115hp 1.0-litre engine. Audi A1 engine appears with 115bhp to divide opinion, but the group uniformly agree it feels underwhelming in the bigger A3.

The Skoda Octavia nevertheless manages to be the one bigger-bodied vehicle which mates well with a tiny engine.
