The 1.0-Liter Ecoboost powered Ford Fiesta was named the Women’s World Car of the Year.
The honor was decided by a panel of 18 female automotive writers from around the world. The criteria included safety, value-for-money, aesthetic appearance, storage space, child-friendliness, ease-of-driving, color, sex appeal, and environmental footprint.
Ford’s 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine –also the International Engine of the Year 2013 and 2012 – delivers 125PS and produces 99g/km CO2 as part of a class-leading line-up of six powertrains that deliver sub-100 g/km CO2 emissions.
Barb Samardzich, vice president Product Development, Ford of Europe, says:
“The new Fiesta has raised the bar to offer a sharper-looking, better-connected car that is even more fuel efficient and fun-to-drive. By tuning into the needs of all our customers we are ensuring this small car with the big history has a very bright future.”
While the 1.0-liter Ecoboost engine has not yet made its debut in the States, the 2014 Ford Fiesta is still an impressive machine with its attractive styling and easy ride. The 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine is set to debut later this year, however an exact date is not set.
