In addition to introducing a new level of high-quality interior trim, Ford has also shown a 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbo EcoBlue diesel engine. It produces 118 hp (120 hp/88 kW) in combination with a six-speed manual transmission.

Another new addition is a new option to order a car with a seven-speed automatic transmission for a 123-hp three-cylinder EcoBoost petrol engine.

The 2021 Ford Puma ST

The expansion of the Puma line-up is not yet complete, as the hot Puma ST will be introduced later this year. It will share a 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine with the Fiesta ST, which develops 197 hp and 290 Nm. The new FWD model will be equipped with a six-speed manual transmission. As it is slightly heavier than the hot hatch, which accelerates from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 6.5 seconds, the Puma ST will be a few tenths of a second slower.
