THIRST 4.9L/100km THE LOWDOWN The arrival of a threecylinder EcoBoost engine that sips very sweetly has added as much impact to the Fiesta as the new frontal treatment (part of a global drive that will soon include the Fiesta and Mondeo). The Fiesta is also available with two other engines but what’s common to all three is a sporty chassis feel and a youthful design approach. The Fiesta is a car to recommend — unlike the rival Holden Barina.
