Fiesta to get non-turbo 1.0 engine
* Fiesta 1.0 Ecoboost model on the way * Non-turbo three-cylinder engine * Sub-100g/km CO2; around 80bhp...
The man in charge of developing the engine, Dr. Thomas Zenner, told What Car? that it was designed from the outset to have both turbo and non-turbo applications, and said that a naturally aspirated version would make perfect sense in the Fiesta.
Without a turbocharger, the 1.0 engine would produce around 80bhp (about the same as the current 1.25 Fiesta), and would almost certainly deliver sub-100g/km CO2 emissions.
The introduction of the new engine is likely to coincide with the launch of a face-lifted Fiesta range this autumn.
