The seventh-generation Ford Fiesta was launched in the summer of 2016 and arrived in dealerships for the 2017 model year. It’s been less than a year since the new hatchback broke cover, and Ford is already launching the performance-oriented ST version. Unveiled ahead of the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, the new hot-hatch will make its public debut at the Swiss event and join both European and North American markets shortly after.
Sporting the same styling language as the standard model, the new Fiesta ST arrives with a sporty exterior package and an interior that stands out by means of badge-specific features and extra standard equipment. The ST was also redesigned under the hood, where the previous four-cylinder engine was replaced by a three-pot unit. The new ST also features three drive modes, a first for the nameplate, and various modification to the chassis.
“Our next generation Fiesta ST is true to the philosophy of delivering cutting-edge technology to enhance every facet of the responsive Ford Performance chassis and powertrain,” said Joe Bakaj, vice president, Product Development, Ford of Europe. “With selectable Drive Modes and an all-new EcoBoost engine delivering an unprecedented combination of performance and fuel-efficiency, the new model will deliver the most versatile, fun, engaging and rewarding Fiesta ST driving experience yet.”
Although Ford revealed plenty of details about the car, there’s more to come at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, so make sure you stay tuned for updates.
