The vehicle also come with practical features like Ford's Easy Fuel system and a rear view camera.
Mark Easton, Ford Britain light commercial vehicle product manager, describes the van as "a stylish mobile workshop for light duty tools and equipment that makes great business sense".
He added: "Both local tradesmen and urban delivery drivers will appreciate its sharp, professional looks, while relying on its versatility, dependability and exceptionally low running costs."
With its practical 1.0-cubic metre load space, the vehicle offers businesses an adaptable van with classic Fiesta driver appeal.
Its load compartment features a secure steel bulkhead and four cargo tie-down hooks, plus a tough rubber floor mat and durable sidewall trim.
The van's load length of 1.3m and gross payload ranging from 485g to 508kg means space for bulkier items.
Engine choice includes a 95PS 1.6-litre Dagenham-built Duratorq TDCi diesel as well as the 1.5-litre 75PS Duratorq TDCi power plant. The van is also offered with an 82PS 1.25-litre Duratec petrol unit assembled at Bridgend.
The ultra-efficient ECOnetic version comes with Auto-Start-Stop as standard along with lowered suspension, an aerodynamic rear under-tray and wheel trims, plus low-rolling resistance tyres.
The availability of Ford SYNC in-car connectivity system in the van follows its introduction in the new Transit Custom. The Emergency Assistance system directly connects the vehicle to local emergency services operators after an accident in the correct language for the relevant country.
Active City Stop, designed to help drivers avoid low-speed collisions, is offered, alongside other features such as Hill Start Assist.
Highlights of the sharper styling of the van include laser-cut headlamps incorporating LED technology and a power-dome bonnet. The van is also available with 17in alloy wheels for the first time. First deliveries begin this month.
