ECOnetic

The ECOnetic model was first introduced in 2009 in an effort from Ford to reduce CO2 emissions. The model uses a 1.6 Duratorq TDCi diesel engine with an extra diesel particulate filter and achieved an estimate fuel consumption of 3.6l/100km, actually performing better than the Toyota Prius.

Special versions

Fiesta ST

The 2011 Ford Fiesta ST sports a turbocharged, 1.6 liter Ecoboost engine making 177hp and 240Nm of torque.

The Fiesta ST is truly a smaller version of the Focus ST. Its 1.6 liter, Ecoboost engine is based off 2.0 liter found in the Focus ST. Ford claims that it will be capable of sprints to 100km/h in less than seven seconds with a six-speed manual transmission and a top speed of about 220km/h. Ford claims that the Fiesta ST will produce less than 140g/km of CO2.

The design of the Fiesta ST is probably what is most polarizing. It is very aggressive with a rear diffuser, 17in wheels and dual exhaust. The front end is very love it or hate it, though. While the large, single piece frontend looks great on the Focus ST, it is almost too big on the Fiesta ST. The car is almost starting to look fish-like. It is definitely functional but might not be aesthetically good.
