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.

Efficient Diesel options

The 1.5l TDCi engine is available in either 95PS or 120PS. Both power options maximise fuel economy and minimise emissions, too. This engine is currently available with a 6-speed manual gearbox and as a 120PS with automatic transmission.

Re-charge your battery more efficiently

Unlike traditional systems, Smart Regenerative Charging only charges the battery when it needs it and, whenever possible, avoids doing so when you’re pressing the accelerator. This can help save even more fuel and further reduce emissions.

The 2.0 TDCi engine is also new and increases power from 140 PS to 150 PS. This engine is available with both a 6-speed manual and 6-speed PowerShift automatic gearbox.
