Puma gains 1.4-litre engine

THE Ford Puma is now available with a 1.4-litre 16-valve Zetec-SE engine, as used in the Fiesta range. The new engine, which joins the Puma's existing 1.7-litre unit, will take the car from 0-60mph in 10.8 seconds. The 1.4 model is available in one trim and costs £13,200 on-the-road.

The set-up of the car's chassis remains identical to that of the 1.7 and the models are visually indistinguishable. However, the aim is to give more choice to customers who may want a lower-powered car.

Power-assisted steering and driver airbag are standard, with front passenger airbag an option. Security measures include the latest generation of Ford's Safeguard engine immobiliser, perimeter alarm and remote control central double-locking.
