There's plenty to love about the All-New Fiesta ST – Ford's latest evolution of its compact hot hatch. Which is why we decided to take a closer look at what we consider to be the car's seven finest features.
1. Eye-catching looks: Available as a three-door or a five-door, the All-New Fiesta ST builds on the stunning looks of Ford’s all-new hatchback with bold and distinctive performance-inspired features. At the front, there’s a race car-inspired honeycomb mesh grille, while 18-inch alloy wheels are available in a design exclusive to the Fiesta ST, with optional red brake calipers. The sporty body kit is enhanced by the lowered suspension, while twin exhausts cap the rear. As if that wasn’t enough, you can even choose a stunning new exterior paint colour: Ford Performance Blue.
2. A powerful next-gen engine: The All-New Fiesta ST is the first Ford Performance model to use a three-cylinder engine – but this is no ordinary three-cylinder. Thanks to a new lightweight all-aluminium 1.5-litre EcoBoost design, allied to an optimised turbocharger that builds boost pressure faster and minimises lag, it delivers high torque at low revs for more power and faster response. With 197bhp – 19bhp more than on the previous Fiesta ST – and 290Nm of torque, the result is 0-62mph in just 6.7 seconds.
