– 1.0L EcoBoost engine option added (late availability).
– New chrome grille and hood.
– Fiesta ST added.

For 2014, the Ford Fiesta, for the most part, only gets some minor tweaks to normal trims. But two big changes – the addition of a 1.0L EcoBoost three-cylinder engine and the new, hot hatch Fiesta ST – are sure to change the line-up for the better.

All Fiestas are powered by the Brazilian-made 1.6-liter Ti-VCT inline four-cylinder engine generating 120 hp and 112 lb-ft of torque. With this engine is a choice of two transmissions: a 5-speed manual if you prefer to row your own gears, or a 6-speed PowerShift dual-clutch automatic. ST models get a turbocharged 1.6L EcoBoost four-cylinder engine and six-speed manual transmission.
