Ford Fiesta: chip tuning for one of UK’s best-selling hatchbacks
PowerControl and PedalBox significantly improve the driving experience of the 2017 Ford Fiesta
The American car manufacturer is revolutionizing its compact class with the Ford Fiesta 18: more space, more comfort, equipped with the latest tech. The 1.5-litre four-cylinder diesel engine with the standard output of 120hp and 199ftlb fits particularly well to the Fiesta. The real potential can now be released by the new chip tuning PowerControl X from DTE Systems.
The 2017 Ford Fiesta is sportier and bigger - 71 millimeters in length and 13 millimeters in width. However, the hatchback produced in Cologne-Niehl has also gained in comfort and dynamics, compared to its predecessors. But the compact diesel still has huge potential: Therefore, the Ford Fiesta is equipped with the current chip tuning box from DTE Systems. With the new PowerControl X the small Ford experiences a completely new development of power. The Ford Fiesta 1.5 TDCi generates +23hp and +55ftlb more torque using PowerControl X and this performance can be felt right away. This provides a neat driving pleasure, especially when starting-up or accelerating on longer distances. So, the eighth-generation Fiesta with the DTE tuning no longer needs to hide from its competitors of Vauxhall Corsa, VW Polo or Hyundai i20.
Chip tuning with smartphone control: now also available for the Ford Fiesta (2017)
Controlling the extra power with PowerControl X is quite easy using a smartphone. Switching on or off the tuning or between the driving programs Sport, Dynamic and Efficiency is easily possible with the new app. For a perfect visualization of all relevant performance data, the PowerControl app also offers a performance instrumentation panel that displays the optimized values – such as turbocharging, rail or manifold pressure. Another app’s highlight is the accelerometer, which measures, which g-forces act on the vehicle from all directions in real time.

PedalBox with smartphone app for Ford Fiesta
Ford Fiesta tuning: Better acceleration with the PedalBox
In some reviews, the slightly slower acceleration of the Fiesta is criticized. Despite the diesel’s fairly good torque of the Fiesta, it starts a bit sluggish. Therefore, the compact is also equipped with the accelerator pedal tuning system PedalBox by DTE Systems. The plug-and-play tuning is quickly installed in just a few simple steps and improves the Ford’s acceleration by up to + 10%. Only two plugs are connected - one to the accelerator pedal, the other to the pedal sensor. With the three preset programs "Sport", "Sport Plus" and "City" the PedalBox is ready to use.
