I don't know about 85MPG, maybe if a ecomodder drives it
The official figures are 80.7MPG(UK) ~67.2MPG(US)

Ya, you're right...it seems weird to me though that the 1.6 versions gets a better mileage than the 1.4

L.E. I see now on the site, the 1.6 is especially down-powered for fuel economy, the "normal" diesel puts up 120BHP and the ECOnetic 90BHP...Gotta love the torque on this thing though, 205Nm(151lb.ft). Also the 0-100 in 11.8s is quite respectable.

I also looked up the changes from the regular Fiesta:

I would say that these changes are very light compared to what some folks here at ecomodder are doing with their cars and probably it's possible with further aeromodding /tweaking to achieve 70-80MPG (US)- less than 3l/100km with this car

One more thing that bothers me...Why the heck don't they send over the 1.2 engine in the US for this Fiesta and in general, why is it that the smallest friggin engine you can find on most US model cars is like 1.6 sometimes 2.0 liters...



IT'S BECAUSE OF THE BACK SEAT DRIVER !!!!!!

That reminds me of the "If you don't carpool your driving with Hitler slogan from WWII"

I guess its the same reason I can't order a new ford transit with the interior (that they throw out) intact and a MT instead of an auto. The euro transit is what 42mpg+ our is 24mpg?

Talking Finally got it!

At long last, after spending 93 days in transit beyond the build date, we took delivery of the Fiesta this week:

Just off the transport:


Note the baby spoiler. I'm not sure if that is helping by breaking up the boundary layer, or just looking stylish at the expense of creating more drag.

Partial grill blocks:

In Wisconsin, the law requires we display a front plate, so I will be carrying an ugly slab of aluminum and plastic on an otherwise sleek front end.

Aero tweaks behind the wheels:

The bottom is nearly half panned too.

My wife gets her first look at her new ride:


Inside:


Driving it off the showroom floor:



And some pictures taken by the Yacht club:





I will post the mpg results under "Tuco" (named after the character in "The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly") in my garage here on this site.
