Between the Fiesta, B-MAX and Focus, Ford’s small car lineup for the UK is about to get fresher in time for the new year.
Both the Fiesta and B-MAX will join the smaller Ka with Black, White and other Color Editions in 2016, whereas the Focus Zetec S Red & Black Editions are on track to arrive in dealerships across the UK. Of course, Zetec S-spec models have been a part of the Focus family in the UK for a lot of years now – starting with the facelifted version of the previous generation model, back in 2008.
The new Focus Zetec S will feature either a Race Red exterior with contrasting Panther Black roof, black mirror caps and black grille surround, or a reversed combination where the exterior comes in Panther black and the Race Red covers the roof, mirrors and grille surround.
Inside, you get more of the same due to the black painted center stack, black leather sports steering wheel and gear lever (red stitching), black leather handbrake lever, black floor mats and Charcoal black sports seats with the same contrasting red stitching.
In terms of wheels, you’re looking at a unique set of Panther Black 18″ alloys, which cover up the red calipers.
On the road, the Focus Zetec S should offer a sportier drive thanks to the re-tuned suspension (stiffened by 10%), tuned shock absorbers and a front anti-roll bar optimized for front-end grip and turn-in performance. Customers can choose between a 1.5-liter EcoBoost 182 PS petrol version or a 2.0-liter TDCi 150 PS turbodiesel model, as both of them are available to order now.
The Fiesta Zetec Black and White Editions is available in Frozen White or Panther Black colors, with contrasting roofs and wing mirrors – similar to what you get in the Focus. Naturally, the interior has pretty much the same theme with white stitching and white inserts complimenting the dark surfaces.
The limited edition models are priced from £13,645 OTR and come with 15″ black alloys, rear privacy glass and power-folding door mirrors with puddle lights. Under their hoods, you’ll find the award-winning 1.0-liter EcoBoost 100 PS engine, or the 1.25-liter Duratec 82 PS engine, as the choice belongs to the customer.
Both models are available in either three-door or five-door body styles.
As for the B-MAX Zetec Color Edition, it will go on sale from January 2016 from £15,745 and will arrive in dealerships in spring. Customers will be able to choose between the Zetec Red Edition, White Edition and Silver Edition, which come in Race Red, Frozen White and Moondust Silver respectively.
The small MPV will also come with three powertrains, namely a 1.0-liter EcoBoost 140PS unit (available for the first time beyond the Fiesta Zetec S), a 1.4-liter 90 PS unit and a 1.6-liter 105 PS PowerShift unit.
