Body kit includes a new front bumper, side skirts and a spoiler and diffuser for the rear.

The new sport variant comes fitted with 17-inch white alloy wheels for the petrol/gasoline version and 16-inch for the diesel. That petrol engine is the 1.6 liter Ti-VCT Duratec with 120 PS (88 kW). The diesel variant comes with Ford's 1.6 liter TDCi with 95 PS (70 kW). Ford states an engine upgrade package from Mountune will be offered but provided no details.
