Developing 104 horsepower, the diesel unit will also benefit from a new air cooling system, high performance fuel injectors and also a revised turbocharger. In order to improve the efficiency, additional systems such as the regenerative braking and the start/stop will do the job and reduce the fuel consumption.

The aerodynamics play a very important role, thus, the Americans from Ford fitted the ECOnetic version with low-rolling resistance tires, an active grille shutter which adjusts according to every situation but also a flat underbody, all these assuring a low drag coefficient.
