FORD showrooms will have a youthful exuberance from September when the new Fiesta arrives, priced from $15,825.

The base-model Fiesta will have a 1.5-litre petrol engine, but also on offer will be a 1.0-litre EcoBoost powerplant which promises to deliver fuel consumption of less than five litres for every 100km.

The Fiesta will be available in four trims, entry-level Ambiente, stylish Trend, high-series Sport and high-performance ST.

 "Customers want cars that are expressive and fun while offering great fuel economy," said Ford's marketing manager David Katic said.

"Fiesta delivers all the excitement drivers are looking for in a car we believe will raise the bar even higher for small cars in Australia.

"Our goal with this Fiesta was to take a car that already offered great fuel efficiency, performance, connectivity and personality, and make it even better for our customers."

Both Ambiente and Trend are available with Ford's new 1.5-litre Duratec engine, delivering 82kW and 140Nm of torque and returning 5.8 litres/100km (combined average), a 0.3 l/100km improvement on the previous generation 1.6-litre engine.

Transmission choices include six-speed PowerShift dual-clutch automatic or five-speed manual transmission.
