Vroom.. 182hp and 240Nm torque for the new Ford Fiesta ST

Hey Guys

The newest Sporty Version of the Ford Fista, the Fiesta ST, is equipped with a 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol engine to achieve 0-62mph in 6.9 seconds and offer 182PS and 240Nm of torque. Top speed is 137mph - anything else you want to know? ;)

Of course it's also important to mention that the ST emmits just 138g/km CO2 per 100 km (20 percent less than the previous ST-generation, thanks to the new EcoBoost technology) and uses just a little less than 6 liters per 100 km / 47.9 mpg (combined).

For the sporty touch the driver sits in Recaro seats, enjoys unique ST detailing and a Sound Symposer.

What else is new?

Ford Team RS tuned the powertrain, suspension, steering and brakes for optimised driving dynamics; and introduced features only previously found in larger performance cars – including enhanced Torque Vectoring Control (eTVC) and 3-mode Electronic Stability Control (ESC), six-speed manual transmission and rear disc brakes.

The new Fiesta ST features a large trapezoidal grille with a unique honeycomb construction and dramatic rear diffuser element. The refined high-contrast interior is equipped with Recaro seats, and a new Sound Symposer channels the engine note to the cabin to ensure the distinctive engine roar is integral to the driving experience. Ford has also introduced SYNC and MyKey.

“The new Fiesta ST delivers remarkable levels of performance, design and quality to offer an unsurpassed driving experience,” said Juergen Gagstatter, chief programme engineer, Fiesta ST. “Ford’s European customers are connoisseurs of the hot hatchback and the new Fiesta ST speaks directly to that passion for performance driving.”
