http://whi.ch/FordFiesta2013 A mid-life update in early 2013 brings cosmetic changes, technology updates and, significantly, the availability of Ford's three-cylinder, 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine.
You can spot the '2013' Ford Fiesta by its new bonnet, bumpers, grille and headlights. It now fits in with Ford's latest 'trapezoidal grille' look, and features integrated LED daytime running lights.
New technologies include a voice-activated in-car system called 'Ford SYNC'. This allows phones and music devices to be connected via Bluetooth or USB, and includes Emergency Assistance, which directly connects to local emergency services after an accident. Also available is Active City Stop, a system designed to help drivers avoid low speed collisions, and MyKey which can be programmed to set speed limits for particular drivers.
New Mazda 6 2013 - Which? first drive
http://whi.ch/mazda62013 The 2013 Mazda 6 is one the most fuel-efficient
cars in its class -- and one of the best-looking. Can it tempt buyers from
the all-conquering BMW 3 Series?
Mazda's flagship large car is available as a four-door saloon or an estate,
called the Tourer. Unlike the old 6, there's no five-door hatchback --
apparently buyers see saloons as more upmarket.
Prices for diesel models start at £21,795 for the 148bhp 2.2-litre saloon,
rising to £28,045 for the 173bhp 2.2 Tourer auto in fully-loaded Sport Nav
Petrol versions are significantly cheaper, at £19,595 for the entry-level
143bhp 2.0 saloon and £24,865 for the top-spec 163bhp 2.0 Tourer.
Mercedes A-Class - Which? first drive
http://whi.ch/merc-a-class The new Mercedes-Benz A-class marks a radical
departure from the previous two generations. Gone are the mini-MPV styling
and proportions of the former car, making way for a stylish and sleek
New Toyota Auris 2013 - Which? first drive
http://whi.ch/ToyotaAuris2013 Toyota's new Auris has big boots to fill.
It's a direct descendent of the Corolla, the world's bestselling car and
the model that earned Toyota its reputation for reliability.
The five-door Auris hatchback goes on sale first, with a Touring Sports
estate due in July 2013. Prices start at £14,500, although Toyota UK
expects the hybrid -- priced from £19,995 -- to be its bestseller.
Four engines are offered: 1.33- and 1.6-litre petrol, 1.4 diesel and the
hybrid, which uses the same petrol/electric drivetrain as the Prius. A
six-speed manual gearbox is standard, with an optional auto 'box (£1,000)
on the 1.6 petrol. The hybrid comes with a 'one-speed' CVT automatic.
Medium hatchbacks are the bread and butter of the UK car market, so the
Toyota's rivals include some familiar faces: Ford Focus, Renault Megane,
Vauxhall Astra and Volkswagen Golf.
At the top end of this segment, the Audi A3, BMW 1 Series and Mercedes
A-class offer premium badges at premium prices. And at the lower end, cars
like the Chevrolet Cruze, Hyundai i30 and Kia Cee'd tempt buyers with long
warranties and plenty of standard equipment.
Finally, let's not forget compact MPVs and 4x4s, such as Toyota's own Verso
2014 Ford Fiesta 1.0L - Three cylinders and three dreaded letters: NVH
As automakers struggle to find new ways to attract buyers with improved
fuel economy while meeting increasingly strict government regulations,
nothing is off the table. Nowhere is that more true than with the 2014

Ford Fiesta 1.0 Litre EcoBoost - testing new 3 cyl, 65 mpg wonder engine
We take a hands-on look and test drive the new Ford Fiesta 1.0 Litre EcoBoost car, which breaks new ground in
terms of its economy and performance. The award winning engine, which is
small enough to fit into the overhead luggage compartment on an airplane,
powers the car up to 112 mph while offering an incredibly miserly 65.7 mpg
Unfortunately it also breaks new ground in terms of pricing for this grade
of car, but technology always comes at a price.
It's a great example of just how determined the car companies are to fight
back against accusations of not doing enough to deliver economical and yet
practical cars, and we're definitely keen to see many more of this type of
vehicle in the future.
Hopefully at a more reasonable price.
