on - 2015 Ford Figo and Figo compact sedan 1.0-liter EcoBoost powered Fiesta?
Ford did not launch the current Fiesta facelift with an diesel engine which hints for a future petrol variant, since previous Fiesta used to come with a 1.5-liter Ti-VCT petrol. Moreover, petrol sedans are again getting popular as price of the dearer fuel is on a slide. Internationally, Fiesta is offered with the 1.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost (which powers the EcoSport here). Speaking in this context, Ford might launch the Fiesta equipped with turbo petrol 1.0-liter EcoBoost from their upcoming plant. Finger crossed!
