The new Fiesta ST is a high performance version of the hatchback using EcoBoost engine technology that is also found in the Fiesta RS World Rally Car. Available as a 3-door and now 5-door, the Fiesta ST is specially tuned for responsive handling, and is engineered to provide a finely judged balance between pure power and polished dynamics.
Sitting 15mm lower than other versions, the Fiesta ST has a unique sporty honeycomb grille design with a discreet ST logo. There are chunky sills and a new rear bumper complete with diffuser-style element and twin exhausts. The dynamic bodywork will be available in five vibrant colours, including Race Red, Molten Orange and Performance Blue. Inside, the performance theme continues with form hugging Recaro seats, carbonfibre dash trim, plus steering wheel, gearstick and pedals that are unique to the ST model. A special Sound Symposer will filter the most inspiring engine sounds into the cabin.
Under the bonnet lives a 1.6-litre 178bhp EcoBoost petrol engine that delivers 20 percent more power than the unit it replaces. It also achieves 20 percent lower CO2 emissions. With 177lb/ft of torque, the new ST delivers 0-62mph in just 6.9 seconds and a maximum speed of 136mph.
The new Fiesta ST will be packed with smart and safe technology to enhance the drive. There's Torque Vectoring Control that provides split second optimum grip in every corner, plus Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) for ultimate control in all conditions. This system also has three settings to allow maximum driver input and choice. The advanced Ford SYNC multimedia system allows you to control music and communication devices with voice command, whilst Ford MyKey enables you to limit the considerable performance of the Fiesta ST when less experienced drivers are at the wheel.
