The all-new Ford Fiesta Zetec S Red and Black Editions demand attention and serve as two sporty new additions to this already varied range, offering exceptionally dynamic styling and a level of performance to match.
The three-door Ford Fiesta Red and Black Editions have considerable road presence thanks to sporty exterior styling and the use of contrasting paintwork and detailing on the door mirror caps, roof and grille. The large 17-inch eight-spoke black alloy wheels stand out immediately and along with the sweeping contours, swept-back headlights and flared wheel arches, help to give these models their sense of urgency. Front and rear spoilers along with side sills add to the car's sporty appearance.
Step inside either of the new models and you'll be treated to a plush interior that has benefited from numerous styling upgrades. Build quality and comfort levels are as high as ever, while the attention to detail throughout the cabin is impressive. The use of contrasting colours, along with red stitching on the leather-rimmed steering wheel, leather-trimmed handbrake and gearshift gaiter, and special-edition floor mats all combine to create a sense of exclusivity, speed and high performance.
Handling on these models has also been improved thanks to the use of lowered sports suspension which is 12 percent stiffer at the front of the car and six percent stiffer at the rear, providing better balance and grip even when tackling the tightest of bends.
But it is certainly not just about looks with these two models, as their August release marks the debut of Ford's new 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine. It offers an improved 138bhp thanks to higher turbo boost, variable cam timing and direct injection, and will help the models better compete with rivals in the supermini class. The engine delivers maximum torque of 180Nm, a maximum speed of 125mph and is capable of 0-60mph in a fraction under nine seconds. Efficiency has not been forgotten however, and the new powertrain manages an impressive 62.8mpg combined, while CO2 emissions have been kept to a highly respectable 104g/km.
