While Australia has only recently been introduced to the 2009 Ford Fiesta, Euro tuners have been busy with Ford's new light car, waving their wands over the standard car to turn up the heat a little.

German outfit Loder1899 has tackled the handling package and smartened up the Fiesta's visuals, while British crew Mountune Performance has been working with Ford?s Team RS to come up with an engine performance kit for the car.

Loder1899 has added a subtle but effective front apron, side skirts and three-piece rear apron with integrated diffuser.

The outboard edges of the rear kit house twin dual-oulet stainless-steel exhaust tips to round the package out.

Suspension gets lowered by 35 mm (1.4 inches) and rolling stock is swapped out for 17-inch alloys with 205/40R17 tyres, or 18-inch rims wrapped in 215/35R18 rubber. The styling package adds a degree of understated menace to the look of the Fiesta.

For those who?d like some ?yee-ha? added to their Fiesta, Mountune has put together an engine upgrade kit for the Fiesta with the help of Ford?s factory performance arm, Team RS.

Does 104kW (140hp) and 170Nm (125lb-ft) from the 1.6 litre Fiesta engine sound like the sort of thing you were looking for? Make no mistake, those figures make for a very real enhancement over the standard car's 88kW (120hp) and 152Nm (112lb-ft).

The extra shove is provided by a minor modification to the engine's tuning, as well as a new air-induction system and high-flow exhaust with a tubular manifold.

The revisions equate to a 7.9 second 0-100 km/h sprint, shaving a full 2.0 seconds off the standard 1.6 litre Fiesta's 9.9 second dash.

The Mountune package is available from selected UK dealers for ?1,299 (AUD $2780) plus fitting. Fingers crossed Ford Australia has something similar in the pipeline for Fiesta customers here.
