The Ford Fiesta Centura edition 0
One of our previous articles discussed how Ford has done so well in the UK automotive industry for 100 years. It is now celebrating this feat with the Ford Fiesta Centura.
Last month we heard of the news, with many Ford fans geared to snap up the most current most popular car in the UK, with 52,327 of them sold in the first half of the year alone. The latest Fiesta to be added to the line-up has £600 worth of extra components. These include:
- Metallic Panther Black Exterior paint (The only colour it will be available in)
- 16 inch alloy wheels
- Chrome styled door cps and mirrors
- LED daytime running lights
- Rear parking camera with rear parking sensors
There is no variety of engines to choose from, with Ford Fiesta Centura just having a 1.25 petrol installed. The statistics produced by the engine represent a typical Fiesta performance. You’ll get around 82 BHP from it. One reason why the Ford Fiesta sells so well is because of its fuel credentials. The emissions are so low with this car that road tax is free for the first year. Other running costs such as repairs and servicing are also deemed cheap.
The car’s interior will be heavily influenced by the current Zetec model. This is great news for fans who can’t wait for its arrival, as you get power steering and a quality sound system. There will be a great amount of safety equipment within the car, such as airbags throughout.
The car is competitively priced at £13,396, a good deal in our eyes. There will be both a 3 door and a 5 door version of the Ford Fiesta Centura.
We are delighted that Ford has decided to celebrate a 100 years by releasing a brilliant new version of the Fiesta. Although perhaps more features could have been added, there really can’t be enough of them on the road. They always sell very well and are one the company’s most successful cars throughout the world.
The Ford Fiesta Centura will only have 1000 units produced, but is sure to attract plenty of interest. Ford may even have to produce more to satisfy high demand.
