Anyone think this will come to SG when it launch? I am looking for a hatch as my car just scrapped.. Not too sure if this is in the near future short enough to wait for it..

 

The spy shot car's halgoen headlamps remind me of the Ford Ka... hehe!

 

Given that Regent has been bringing in the Fiesta, I would expect it to arrive here at some point, but don't expect it to be any time soon.

Hi, I am interested to get thw Ford Fiesta 1.0 Titinum A Ecoboost from Regent Motor. Reviews seem good so far, except hearing lots of Form's dual clutch issue. Does anyone have a Ford Fiesta 1.0? How reliable is this car? Is this 1.0L with turbo powerful? Thanks for your advise

Ya a real steal from my $100k price. Although cramped, the engine is very powerful with ecoboost which can overtake cars very easily with light foot. The suspension is very firm and steady just like bmw. The focus 1.6 engine don't even have the power. I am waiting very patiently for the focus 1.0 to trade in but like forever never come, so I stick with this car until then. It also drives like a diesel with high torque but quiet so I can't buy another diesel anymore although more fuel efficient. U need to test drive the fiesta to enjoy its fun as cannot be explained in real words. It is truely an amazing award winning engine. No other ford engine can be compared to this as it lightens the car with just a4 size. Even mondeo also got 1.0l overseas. It does not torture the dual clutch powershift gearbox. The pug 1.2l can't even be compared with this ford engine as pug do not have dual clutch gb. I wish more ppl will buy this engine and we can start the fiesta 1.0l club and organise gtg. It is a direct competitor to the vw 1.4 tsi engine which has many problems Bec of the 7spd dry gb. Ford will become a game changer one day with its autonomous cars with google and this amazing engine. USA will outbeat Germany in producing high tech cars as German cars are more super complicated with more faults.

Have you tested 1.2L Pug to compare with Fiesta 1.0?

i was there at the expo yesterday. this car matches the opel in term of festures and finishes for the price range. Ford has been around since tge early 60-70. in fact most if not all army cars are either ford or mini.

Frankly, for $9k more, you can get the Focus saloon which is a better buy as the scrap value of Focus is approx. $7k whilst the Fiesta is $2.5k so effectively just $4.5k more for a bigger car and additional monthly installments is minimally more only.

I looked at the Fiesta at the Expo and thought that it looked and felt really old. The steering wheel is mounted too high, and the adjuster lever was awfully difficult to release and lock - the steering wheel shuddered as you released. The plastics used in the cabin is of yesterday's quality. The back seats were small and dark. And if you look at the panel gaps, they were uneven and ill-fitting - most prominent was the RHS rear door standing a few mm proud... 

 

The engine could be great, but I think many other cars are better built and would feel less dated a few years down the road...

It's one of the older models in the current Ford lineup and is due for a makeover next year. But for its class it is not that far behind the curve.

Munhua used to post here about their mostly positive experience with their 1.0L EcoBoost, but I haven't seen activity from them for a long time.
