Get the most out of your engine

The innovative 1.0-litre 3-cylinder Ford EcoBoost petrol engine gives you all the power you’d expect from a conventional 1.6-litre engine (up to 125PS) whilst delivering around 24% better fuel economy and 25% lower CO2 emissions. No wonder Ford EcoBoost has been awarded International Engine of the Year for the sub 1.0-litre category for a record five years in succession.

Two diesel engines which deliver class-leading efficiency

The efficient 1.5 TDCi is available in either 75 or 95 PS and achieves a class‐ leading 74.3 mpg (combined) and brings CO2 emission levels to just 98g/km.

Use less fuel with Auto-Start-Stop

When you stop at traffic lights or your vehicle is idling in a queue, this technology can automatically switch off the engine (while still supplying power to essentials like the headlights, air-conditioning, radio and the Ford SYNC system). When you're ready to move, just depress the clutch and select first gear as usual, or press the accelerator on an automatic, and the system restarts. Auto-Start-Stop is particularly effective in town and city streets, where it can cut fuel consumption by up to 10% (urban cycle).
