1.0L EcoBoost engine. Big engine power, small engine economy.

Get the most out of your engine

The revolutionary 1.0 litre 3-cylinder EcoBoost petrol engine delivers 100PS and 125PS. That’s the power you’d expect from a conventional 1.6L engine, only with better fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions. Named International Engine of the Year for three years in succession.

Helping you drive more efficiently

The innovative Ford Eco Mode system continually assesses the effects of your driving behaviour on your fuel consumption. The system analyses your speed, gear shifting, braking and anticipation levels, plus the number of short and long journeys you make.
