The Fiesta AT models are powered by the same 1.5 L TiVCT engine that outputs 110 bhp of power and a peak torque of 140 Nm. The six speed automatic gearbox that is now part of the sedan is characterized by PowerShift and is a dual clutch type which is till now seen in Skoda Laura type sedans and is a new technology in India. The best part of the automatic transmission is that since it is dry type, it needs little maintenance and can go upto 2.4 lakh kms without worry. Besides, contrary to other automatic transmission there are little losses in it and thus it translates power to the wheels in toto and thus helps Fiesta AT to return high mileage.
