When it comes to excitement and performance, you don't have to look any further than the new Ford Fiesta ST. The same EcoBoost engine technology present in this model can also be found in the Fiesta RS World Rally car, which shows that the new ST guarantees exhilaration. To ensure its driving dynamics are class-leading, the Fiesta ST was extensively tested, covering over 5000km at Germany's world-famous Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit, ensuring that no stone was left unturned in its development. You can feel like a racer too, as for the first time Recaro sport seats are standard on the Fiesta ST.
The powerful three-door hatchback can reach 62mph in a blistering 6.9 seconds thanks to a precision-tuned four-cylinder 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine that returns 178bhp, which is 20 percent more power than equivalent engines. The new ST's efficiency rivals its power, however, with CO2 emissions as low as 139g/km and a return of 47.9mpg.
The Fiesta ST's advanced technology converts its raw power into a dynamic drive that is always under your control. Every aspect of the new Ford has been tweaked and tuned to ensure maximum performance. From a lowered chassis to Torque Vectoring Control that gives you optimum grip when cornering, every angle has been covered. Controllable stability features are also present too, with the ESP feature enabling you to drive swiftly and safety regardless of the weather conditions. Depending on how you like to drive, you can choose from three different modes in the ESP: 'On' with full stability control; 'Wide slip' mode (which means no traction control); or 'Off', with no intervention whatsoever.
The Fiesta ST is equipped with a range of helpful technologies. For example, the Ford SYNC system lets you control your music and mobile phone with simple voice commands. In addition, MyKey enables you to limit the performance of the car if you ever lend it to somebody else, which is ideal if you ever want to share your car with a more inexperienced driver.
