Here’s a special edition that’s more than just trim and colours. Ford is introducing this Fiesta Metal special edition in the UK, which will be limited to just 1,000 examples. Besides looking more special, the Metal comes with more ponies under the hood: 134 PS, which is 14 pferdestärke more than the usual 120 PS 1.6-litre Duratec Ti-VCT petrol engine.

Also up is torque, which now stands at 160 Nm at 4,250 rpm, up from 152 Nm. 0-100 km/h is done in 8.7 seconds, down from 9.9 seconds. These figures are all similar to the Fiesta Sport+ (in Europe) and the limited edition Fiesta S1600 (in UK).

The Fiesta Metal boasts chrome twin exhaust pipes, silver-painted front grille surround, front aerofoil and front fog light bezels, piano black centre stack bezel, air vent rings and door pulls, Ebony Black leather sports seats with silver stitching and unique floor mats with silver piping. Also in are stainless steel door scuff plates with Fiesta logo, 17-inch black alloys and sports tuning with lowered ride height.
