Fast Ford fans are set to celebrate the return of a sporty favourite – the exciting yet accessible Fiesta Zetec S.

Ford’s stylish new small car will offer a sports model from its UK launch this autumn, giving driving enthusiasts a new benchmark for affordable driving fun.  It will also continue the “Zetec S” name, first introduced to the Fiesta in 1999.

Fiesta Zetec S adds a distinctive sporting flavour to the stylish sweeps and curves of all-new Fiesta.

On the outside are five-spoke, 16in alloy wheels, projector headlamps, front fog lamps, a deeper front bumper, side mouldings and a rear spoiler.

Inside, a leather steering wheel and bolstered sports seats continue that sports feel to appeal to driving enthusiasts, while the standard equipment list also addresses comfort and safety, with side airbags and air conditioning.

These sports interior details add to the ‘cockpit’ driving feel, created by a 30mm lower seating position than the previous-generation Fiesta, while Zetec S adds its own twist to the stylish Fiesta interior, with high contrast trim colours and designs inspired by snowboards.

Fiesta Zetec S lives up to its sporty credentials with an all-new, 120hp Duratec Ti-VCT engine, powerful enough to reach 100 km/h in 9.9sec and a top speed of 200 km/h.  Lowered, tuned sports suspension helps new Fiesta Zetec S make the most of this power and maintain excellent dynamic response.

The responsive new Duratec Ti-VCT engine uses twin independent variable cam timing to provide the optimal balance of performance and fuel economy, so despite its feisty character and 20 extra horsepower, the new Duratec Ti-VCT is still uses less fuel and generates less CO2 than the 100PS, 1.6-litre engine from the previous Fiesta.  It returns a combined fuel economy of 5.9 L/100km and CO2 emissions of 139g/km.

Fiesta Zetec S will also be available with a 1.6-litre 90hp Duratorq TDCi, providing a more relaxed driving character and even greater efficiency.  The exceptionally flexible engine sips fuel at 4.2 L/100km, generating just 110g/km CO2.

The all-new Fiesta range will be launched in the UK in a few months time, with New Zeland sales yet to be confirmed.
