Ford Fiesta is the bomb!!

Posted: November 26, 2013

The latest breaking news is that the sleek, sexy, got-all-the-specs-you-need Ford Fiesta is the best-selling sub-compact car globally!And you can bet that’s not going to change anytime soon because it’s just been announced that the amazing Fiesta 1.0 litre EcoBoost is now available with PowerShift automatic transmission. That means more power, more fuel economy and much, much less impact on the environment with its low CO2 emissions.Let’s hear what Eagle Ford Dealer Principal, Craig Gillesen, says about it:
PowerShift is considered an automatic by virtue of the fact that gear changes are coordinated by a computer that directs the clutches to engage and disengage in a way that provides seamless delivery of torque to the wheels, even during gear changes. As a result, the driver benefits from improved fuel economy along with the crisp acceleration normally associated with a manual gearbox.”


But that’s not all that the world’s best-performing engine produces. The 1.0 litre EcoBoost engine uses technologies including direct fuel injection, turbocharging and variable valve timing to deliver the power of a larger engine with the fuel efficiency of a smaller engine – and all this from a three-cylinder engine block small enough to fit into the overhead luggage compartment of an aeroplane.Which means it’s true what they say about dynamite coming in small packages, because while the diminutive size of the 1.0-litre EcoBoost ensures its efficiency, it offers performance to rival much larger displacement engines. With 74kW and 170Nm on offer the 1.0-litre EcoBoost delivers more power for its size than even some premium cars.With 356,434 units registered in the first half of 2013, it was no surprise when the Fiesta was recently identified as the best-selling sub-compact car globally. All Ford Fiesta models come standard with Ford’s warranty and service plan, which comprises of a four-year / 120 000km fully comprehensive manufacturer warranty, five-year Corrosion warranty and five-year / 90 000km Service Plan. A Ford Protect roadside assistance plan is in place for three-years/ unlimited km while service intervals are scheduled at 20 000km.
