Ford has announced a new addition to the Fiesta range, the Sport +, which aims to offer increased sportiness but no extra performance.

The car will be available with a choice of either the 118bhp 1.6-litre Duratec petrol engine or the improved 1.6-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel engine, now with 94bhp. Both units are currently available in the Fiesta Zetec S.

The Sport + gets a full bodykit, featuring a redesigned front bumper, side skirts and a large rear spoiler. The car will available in a choice of two colours: Frozen White with Performance Blue stripes or in Performance Blue with Performance White stripes. Further sporting cues include large alloy wheels as standard (17in on the petrol mode, 16-inchers on the diesel).

The car will be limited to European markets, and based on the three-door Fiesta only. Prices and on-sale dates have yet to be announced.

Re: Ford's sportier Fiesta

I'm generally getting a bit fed up with motor manufacturers marketing departments. They package models putting an item on one version but not making it available for other versions. Creating cars they call sporting when it is only a cosmetic exercise. How crass.

How I wish we could return to the simple concept of a basic car on which every item was an option. I know there will always be items that can't technically be used in combination, but in general it would be great to be able get what you wanted, and not have to pay for things you don't want.

Re: Ford's sportier Fiesta

The current Fiesta is a very good looking car but this sport+ is no different than a typical Max Power reader taking their Corsa down to Halfords and buying the wheels and stripes to make it look faster.

Cheap shot from Ford I feel!
