Ford launches Fiesta Metal in UK

Ford has made a further addition to its Fiesta line-up.

The American car giant has now launched the Metal edition in the UK which is priced at £15,695 on the road, with just 1000 issued.

The Ford Fiesta Metal is powered by a 1.6 litre Duratec Ti-VCT petrol engine, delivering 134 horsepower at 6.700 rpm and 160 Nm of torque at 4.250 rpm, accelerating from 0 to 62 mpg in just 8.7 seconds.

The limited edition is based on the popular three-door 120PS Ford Fiesta Zetec-S and comes with a silver-painted grille surround, front aerofoil and front fog light bezels, chrome twin exhaust pipes, Ebony Black leather sports seats with silver contrast stitching, unique floor mats, stainless steel door scuff plates, 17 inch Black alloy wheels and a sports tuning suspension with lowered ride height.

"This Ford Fiesta special edition gives the customer great exterior styling with an enhanced performance engine. Customers love that we create Fiestas with special features that prove to be real head-turners," said Anthony Ireson, Ford of Britain's marketing director.
