The new 5-door Ford Fiesta Sport+ with the 1.0L EcoBoost engine will be available at Ford showrooms nationwide starting next month at Php 898,000.00. It is available in six exciting colors, including Arctic White, Black Mica, Highlight Silver, Chili Orange, Phantom Purple and Celestial Blue.

MORE WITH LESS

Since its launch last July, the new Fiesta has continued to impress with its exciting new bold design, segment-leading fuel economy, class-leading safety features and all-new smart technologies.

The smallest engine in its class, Ford’s patented three-cylinder EcoBoost engine will be big on power, torque and refinement. Projected to produce 123 bhp and peak torque of 170 Nm, the quiet and smooth-running engine will deliver power and engine performance that rivals a traditional 1.6-liter petrol engine. With 25 percent fewer moving parts, the 1.0-liter EcoBoost is able to deliver higher fuel economy and lower emissions.

“The new Ford Fiesta continues to raise the bar for small cars in the Philippines. With the introduction of our latest 1.0L EcoBoost engine, we offer customers great fuel economy without sacrificing power and torque”, says Kay Hart, managing director, Ford Philippines.

Tiny enough to fit on a sheet of A4 paper or stow away in an airplane overhead luggage compartment, the 1.0-liter EcoBoost is the baby in Ford’s growing global family of EcoBoost engines which includes 1.6- and 2.0-liter four-cylinders, and two 3.5-liter V6 variants.

LAUDED AROUND THE WORLD

The 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine has been pulling in many prestigious global awards. It was recently voted as the International Engine of The Year by a jury of 87 journalists from 35 countries, winning by the largest voting margin in the award’s history for two consecutive years.

It went on to bag a Breakthrough Award from Popular Mechanic’s magazine in the U.S., the prominent Dewar Trophy from the Royal Automobile Club in Great Britain, and the esteemed International Paul Pietsch Award 2013 for technological innovation in Germany. The 1.0-liter EcoBoost has also proven that small does not mean slow. Last June, it set 16 land speed records at a racetrack in France.

“The 1.0-liter EcoBoost indeed packs a big punch, proving that size does not matter with this multi-awarded engine,” said Hart. “The new Fiesta with 1.0L EcoBoost delivers what customers truly want – a vehicle with no compromise.”
