Engines

1.5 TDCi 120
We haven&#39;t tried this range-topping diesel engine. Unless you do a serious amount of miles, we&#39;d suggest you look at one of the 1.0 Ecoboost petrols instead. Diesel engines rarely make sense in cars this small.
1.5 TDCi 85
Diesel engines rarely make sense in cars this small. The entry-level option is a fine effort, offering good low-end pull and decent fuel economy, but unless you do a serious amount of miles we&#39;d suggest you look at one of the 1.0 Ecoboost petrols instead.
1.1 Ti-VCT 85
A slightly more powerful version of the entry-level 1.1-litre petrol engine. It’s fine around town, but does feel a bit gutless on faster roads; it&#39;s worth upgrading to one of the turbocharged 1.0 Ecoboost engines. Comes with a five-speed manual gearbox as standard.
1.1 Ti-VCT 70
We haven&#39;t tried this entry-level petrol engine, but with a mere 69bhp acceleration it&#39;s likely to be very tardy. We suspect it&#39;s well worth upgrading to one of the turbocharged 1.0 Ecoboost engines. Comes with a five-speed manual gearbox as standard.
1.0 Ecoboost 140
The punchiest engine in the Fiesta line-up pulls strongly from low revs and yet loves to be revved beyond 6000rpm. Well worth a look if you want nippy performance combined with low CO2 emissions. Comes with a six-speed manual gearbox.
Our pick
1.0 Ecoboost 125
The 99bhp 1.0-litre is great, but this 123bhp version is even better without costing you much more to buy or run. It is a responsive, free-revving, sweet unit that&#39;s a peach to drive, and comes with a slick, six-speed manual gearbox.
1.0 Ecoboost 100
This engine is a cracker. Responsive around town and impressively hushed at motorway speed, it’s a brilliantly flexible unit. Comes with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard. You can opt for an automatic gearbox, but if you do CO2 emissions jump up compared with the manual, while fuel economy is also noticeably worse.
