The new-look Ford Fiesta Van debuts the firm's 1.5-litre diesel engine

In line with the freshly facelifted Ford Fiesta hatchback, Ford has also given its Fiesta Van a thorough update, which includes a new look, new technology and the addition of Ford’s new 74bhp 1.5-litre diesel engine which debuted in the facelited Fiesta.

The Fiesta Van is closely related to the regular hatch, but with a 1.0-cubic-metre load space, lined with a rubber mat, instead of rear seats and a 276-litre boot.

Engine choices are the Dagenham-built 94bhp 1.6-litre or new 74bhp 1.5-litre diesels, or the 1.25-litre petrol engine made by Ford’s Bridgend factory in Wales.

A Fiesta Van ECOnetic is also available, powered by a 94bhp diesel engine which emits 87g/km and returns a claimed average of 85.6mpg. Both the regular diesel engines achieve sub-100g/km CO2 emissions and 76.4mpg or better.

The facelifted Fiesta Van also benefits from new safety and technology features from the Fiesta range. These include the programmable MyKey, which includes a speed limiter; Ford’s in-car connectivity system SYNC, and Active City Stop.

Van customers can also spec 17-inch alloy wheels for the first time, to compliment the sharper look of the facelifted car’s nose. The facelifted Fiesta Van is on sale now.
