Ford Fiesta ECOnetic

29 Jan 2009

The Ford Fiesta ECOnetic has arrived in dealership showrooms with a growing order bank in place.  The all-new Ford Fiesta – December's top-selling car – is the latest to benefit from the ECOnetic package of extra fuel efficiency refinements already available on Focus and Mondeo.

For the Ford Fiesta ECOnetic, modifications include lowered suspension, aerodynamic body styling and a gear change alert.  Together these help to lower fuel consumption to 76.3mpg and CO2 emissions to 98g/km.

Since the all-new Ford Fiesta went on sale in October, interest in the range's most frugal variant has soared, with over 500 Fiesta ECOnetics already ordered by customers.

The ECOnetic's subtle but effective efficiency refinements achieve unrivalled fuel economy and emissions.  Debuting on Fiesta ECOnetic is a 'smart' gear change indicator in the instrument panel which senses the way the vehicle is being driven – taking account of road gradient, vehicle load and individual driving style – to signal the optimum change point.

Fiesta ECOnetic – what's different?

  • Modified engine calibration
  • Aerodynamic rear air deflectors
  • Transmission final drive ratio changed from 3.37 to 3.05
  • Suspension lowered by 10mm
  • Optimised rolling resistance tyres (175/65R14) and low friction oil
  • Green shift indicator light
  • Powertrain undershield
