Ford's 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine is Europe's best-selling turbocharged petrol engine for the first six months of the year, according to Ford figures.
From January through June 2014, Ford sold approximately 120,000 1.0-litre EcoBoost vehicles, compared with 104,000 during the first six months of 2013 - an increase of more than 15%.
For the first half of 2014, 1.0-litre EcoBoost models made up 47% of all B-MAX multi-activity vehicles sold, 33% of Focus sales, and 30% of Fiesta sales.
"Customers are clearly enjoying the benefits from a small engine that offers great fuel efficiency with no compromise to refinement or performance," said Barb Samardzich, chief operating officer, Ford of Europe.
"The range of models offering the 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine will rise to 11 when the all-new Mondeo is launched in the coming months, and the new 140 PS version in the Fiesta Red Edition and Black Edition shows there is even more potential."
The 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine was in June again named then 2014 International Engine of the Year for its drivability, performance, economy, refinement and technology - fighting off competition from premium brands and supercars.
