New Fiesta 1.0L EcoBoost_2

The Ford Fiesta 1.0 EcoBoost is now in Sabah and Sarawak, available in all showrooms across both states from today onwards. Priced at RM99,588 (OTR without insurance) in East Malaysia, the sole five-door Sport+ variant is available in three colours – Arctic White, Panther Black and True Red.

The Fiesta 1.0 EcoBoost was launched in Peninsular Malaysia on May 2, priced at RM93,888. What sets it apart from the Fiesta 1.5 is the award winning 1.0 litre three-cylinder turbo engine (International Engine of The Year in 2012 and 2013) under the hood.

The Ecoboost GDI unit makes 125 PS at 6,000 rpm and 170 Nm at 1,400 to 4,500 rpm – surely the highest output RM20 of road tax can buy! A PowerShift six-speed dual-clutch transmission does gearbox duties.

Kit wise, it’s virtually identical to the 1.5 Sport and Titanium save for a full bodykit with splitter-mounted DRLs and seven airbags to the 1.5’s two. EcoBoost decals on the bonnet and sides of the car round off the differences.
