Safety, technology and powertrain upgrades are being added to the highly successful Ford Fiesta range. Already number one in the UK sales charts, the Fiesta range is being further enhanced to keep Britain's favourite small car in pole position.

All newly-ordered Fiestas will have Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) as standard, bringing Fiesta in line with Ford's large and medium car line-ups. ESP previously cost around £300. Customers choosing the Studio series will find heated door mirrors and an in-car entertainment bonus of remote steering-mounted controls, aux-in jack and two additional speakers.  Top-of-the-range Titanium models now have Bluetooth and USB connection as standard, worth around £200. A sophisticated new colour, Ink Blue, is also now available across all models.

Engines change to new Stage V emission levels, with all diesels fitted with diesel particulate filters (DPF) and on all series including the 98gCO2/km ECOnetic.   Diesel engine power goes up by 5PS to 95PS from the 1.6-litre TDCi with DPF.

From August 2010 the latest Stage V engine tuning takes the Fiesta 1.4-litre TDCi with DPF up 2PS to 70PS.

For the 1.25-litre engine, 129g/km emissions puts the Ford Fiesta into a lower VED band, resulting in an annual saving of £110.

Ford Fiesta and Ford Focus occupy the first and second positions among the UK's best selling cars.  Fiesta takes 8.6 per cent share of its market.
