Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 34 - 39 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

The 1.7 was joined by a more insurance-friendly 1.4 in February 1998. Sensibly priced mechanical parts but fixing body damage will prove more costly.

No problems so far, and Fiesta bits are well proven; the outlook is good.
