Available for March’s 14-plate registration, the Fiesta can now be equipped with a 100PS version of Ford’s 1.0litre EcoBoost with six-speed dual-clutch PowerShift automatic transmission.

Such models will benefit from fuel consumption figures of 57.7mpg and CO2 emissions of 114g/km.

Also new to the Fiesta range is an 80PS 1.0litre petrol engine, which delivers CO2 emissions of 99g/km and 65.7mpg fuel consumption.
