Following the success with the buying public of the special edition Fiesta, Ford are now bringing out a sporty version of this small family model as part of their standard portfolio. The looks and specification have been modified accordingly, with the suspension and steering having likewise undergone a transformation.

There are three engine variants on offer, two petrol – a 96bhp 1.4-litre or a 120bhp 1.6-litre – and one diesel – a 90bhp 1.6-litre. The 1.4 Duratec is on sale in Europe at €15,250 whereas the two 1.6-litre versions both retail at €16,500.
