Drivetrain and economy measures

The Econetics uses the latest-generation common rail 66kW/200Nm 1.6-litre turbo-diesel and a five-speed manual gearbox tuned for economy.

Other improvements include a ‘‘green‘‘ gearshift indicator, diesel particulate filter, low rolling-resistance tyres and a tyre repair kit in lieu of a spare tyre to help trim weight.

The cars ride height has also been lowered by 10mm and there are discrete air deflectors to reduce drag.
The Econetic achieves a combined fuel economy figure of 3.7 litres/100km and a highway figure of 3.2 litres/100km.

With just 98 grams of harmful C02 emissions produced from its exhaust for every kilometre, the Econetic also has few emissions than any other conventional internal combustion engine.

It is only the second vehicle to achieve a CO2 rating of under 100g/km and the only non-hybrid to get such an ultra-low figure.
The hybrid Prius is the other, with C02 emissions of 89g/km.

Styling and equipment

Visually the Econetic is very similar to the rest of the front-wheel drive Fiesta range and is also built in Cologne, Germany.
Equipment is on a par with expectations, with a full suite of airbags, including a drivers knee airbag, anti-skid brakes and stability and traction control.

Inside. the cabin is the same as the standard Fiesta CL.
What buyers are really paying for is the technology under the bonnet.

Driving

The remarkable thing about the Fiesta Econetic is that you can drive very economically without even trying.
Not only did we manage to win a mini-economy challenge with the air conditioning on, we even manage to dip below 3.5 litres/100km in 80km/h traffic outside Canberra last week, even seeing 3.0 litres/100km a one stage.

Economy aside, its very hard to pick the Econetic from other petrol models. Fortunately, the huge ?Econetic? livery on the test cars was just for the launch.
Whereas the Toyota Prius is an overt green statement in itself, the Fiesta prefers a low-key approach.

Theres an Econetic badge on the rump that tells part of the story and the discrete aero flaps and wheel trims let people know youre driving something a bit different.
Inside the ?green? shift change light lets you know the optimum gearchange, but most people will not know its a frugal diesel.

The 1.6-litre diesel - like many modern common rail engines - is both quiet and punchy low down, ideal for punting through peak-hour traffic. The engine is also rated for 5 per cent biodiesel.

At highway speeds, engine noise is almost none-existent and the cabin, as weve experienced with the petrol Fiestas, is a very agreeable place to be with supportive seats, excellent visibility and the latest USB connectivity and Bluetooth expected by young buyers.

The ride too is absorbent and handling nimble.
Perhaps the biggest problem with the littlest Ford hatch is a lack of an automatic.
In a market where most younger buyers opt for an automatic, the Econetic makes do with a five-speed manual.

By not having an auto option, Ford has effectively halved the cars sales potential because buyers in this class overwhelmingly choose an auto over a manual.

The Econetic driving experience might also feel a bit more special if the cabin had a more upmarket feel, perhaps borrowing some of the gear from the European Fiesta Titanium?
Why should frugal motorists miss out on a bit of luxury?

Despite these minor quibbles, the Econetic is our new best friend.
Driving more than 1000km between refills is a powerful incentive.
