Upgrades to the 94bhp 1.6TDCi diesel engine – including friction and combustion improvements – have boosted both models’ fuel economy to 85.6mpg.
The addition of a stop-start system, revised gear ratios and regenerative charging have also improved efficiency, as have revisions to the models’ air-conditioning.
The previous models’ low resistance tyres, aero pack and gear shift indicator come as standard.
Three trim levels are available on the - Edge, Zetec or Titanium – with prices for the passenger model starting from £14,445. Prices for the Fiesta van come in at £12,215.
