Performance and Efficiency

The acclaimed petrol 1.0-litre Ford EcoBoost is the perfect example of just how far engine technology’s come. Designed to provide the ideal balance of power, performance and low emissions, Ford EcoBoost is an engine of the future that’s here, today.

Get the most out of your engine

The revolutionary 1.0-litre 3-cylinder Ford EcoBoost petrol engine is a six times winner of the International Engine of the Year award. And no wonder. With a choice of 100 PS, 125 PS or 140 PS, you’ll enjoy performance, but also see around better fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions (vs prior generation EcoBoost engines).


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 release the brake on an automatic, and the system restarts. Auto Start-Stop is particularly effective in town and city streets, where it can really help cut fuel consumption.

Swift, effortless, manual gear changes 

An advanced, 6-speed synchromesh manual gearbox is designed to increase the speed and accuracy of your gear changes, including reverse. As well as making driving more engaging and more fun, the transmission can help improve fuel economy and reduce noise, too.

Essential journey information

An on-board trip computer gives you useful facts and figures about your mileage, fuel consumption, speed and the outside air temperature. It also includes ‘distance to empty’: roughly how far you can go on the fuel left in the tank. This is particularly useful on long journeys, or if you know you’ll be driving somewhere remote.
