CLOSE UP: Ford Fiesta 1.0 ECOBOOST.

In this blog entry, I'm posting a Close up of the Ford Fiesta 1.0 Ecoboost.  This is CBU Thailand and despite 3 cyl 1000cc, it generates 125ps and 170Nm or torque, thanks to direct injection, Variable-valve timing and Turbo.  Note that this engine, awarded "International Engine of The Year" in 2012 AND 2013!  It's priced at RM93,888 OTR without insurance.


Sadly, only Hatchback is available and is paired with 6 speed Dual-clutch Powershift gearbox. Claimed fuel consumption is 5.3l/100km and claimed 0-100km/h is 9.7 secs and 190km/h top speed.

Unfortunately, Ford Distributor SDAC decided to deck the Car with Hideous bodykits and "Loud" stickers.  All is NOT LOST, despite priced RM14,000 more than the 1.5 Sport and Titanium, this baby have the following EXTRAS:

- 13ps and 30Nm torque more than 1.5, thanks to the Direct injection, Turbo.
- 7 airbags vs 2.
- LED Day running lights
- Hideous Bodykits
- "Ecoboost" Stickers everywhere.
- 5.3l/100km down from 6.9l/100km average fuel consumption.

Colour choices:  Limited to White, Red and Black only.  Sad right?

I didn't manage to test drive the baby due to Rain and the fact that they are closing when I reached there at 6pm.

Verdict: 8.5/10.

Well, all is not lost, there's a saying a picture's worth 1000 words, enjoy the photos:



















 Above and below, decent Head and legroom.



















That's all folks, thanks for having the time and patience to read this blog entry.  An original Otoreview's production.  If you want to buy this car, look for Jeff Lim at Ford MRR2 012-6852718.
