The three-door models feature front upper and lower grille surrounds, front bumper aerofoil and mirror caps in contrasting colours, with standard black 17-inch alloy wheels. The body kit offers front and rear sports bumpers, side skirts and rear roof spoiler; and the contrasting colour roof on both models has been painted to achieve a consistent and higher quality gloss finish than can be achieved using a foil appliqué or sticker. The models feature black leather sports steering wheel and gear lever gaiter with red stitching; black floor mats with red stitching; and charcoal black sport seats with contrasting red stitching and bolster exteriors.

The 140PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost features a unique calibration with new settings for turbocharger boost control, valve-timings, intercooler and throttle management to deliver 12% more power and an even sportier driving experience with a 0-60mph acceleration in 9 seconds and a top speed of 125mph, while still delivering 62.8 mpg fuel efficiency and 104g CO2/km emissions.

Ford's 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine was named International Engine of the Year in 2012 and 2013. Like the 100PS and 125PS versions of the 1.0-litre EcoBoost that were chosen by nearly 30% of Fiesta customers in the first quarter of 2014, the 140PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost uses turbo charging, twin-independent Variable Cam Timing and high-pressure direct-injection technologies.

The Ford Fiesta Zetec S Red and Black Editions further enhance driving appeal with revised gear ratios for the 5-speed manual transmission and a sport suspension set-up. In addition to new shock absorber and spring settings, the sport suspension uses a stiffer rear axle and revised tuning for the Electronic Power Assisted Steering system delivering greater torque build-up for more steering feedback.

The new Fiesta was launched in late 2012 with dynamic new exterior design, refined interior and advanced Ford technologies including Ford SYNC voice-activated connectivity system, Active City Stop low-speed collision avoidance system, and MyKey, which enables parents to place certain restrictions on young drivers to promote safer driving.

The Ford Fiesta Zetec S Red and Black Editions will start arriving in dealerships worldwide from September.
