Ford Fiesta MK3 XR2i 8V

Description

The third generation Fiesta, codenamed BE-13 was unveiled in 1989, based on a new platform and ditching the old car’s rear beam axle for a semi-independent torsion beam arrangement. The car also looked radically different, addressing the principal weakness of the previous generation – the lack of a 5-door derivative.

The first sport derivative of this generation was the Fiesta MK3 XR2i that was launched in August 1989. The car was fitted with an eight-valve CVH engine (standing for “compound valve-angle hemispherical combustion chamber”) producing 104 hp (76 kW) and was the first Fiesta to have a fuel-injected engine.

In 1992 the 8v engine was replaced by a Zetec 16 valve version which also saw the RS Turbo being supplanted by the RS1800 as the CVH engine was being phased out. The XR2i name was also dropped in early 1994, and the insurance-friendly “Si” badge appeared in its place on a slightly less sporty-looking model with either the 1.4 L PTE (a development of the CVH) or the 1.6 L Zetec engine.
