Up until the range was extended the Econetic was offered in Edge trim but now the Zetec and Titanium Econetic offer varying degrees of luxury. As you would expect the Econetic range still includes the basics such as air-conditioning, stability control and electric front windows.
However the Zetec Econetic offers a host of chrome exterior finishes, alloy wheels, ambient lighting, front fog lamps and a leather steering wheel. The Titanium Econetic turns up the luxury a notch more with cruise controls, climate controls, automatic wipers, automatic lights as well a Sony stereo complete with a USB port, Bluetooth and DAB.
The stereo can be incorporated into the Zetec for a charge of £400 extra. Also two new colours have been added to the range; Fashionista and Mars Red.
