Ford’s fastest production Ford Fiesta ever, the Ford Fiesta ST will be available in Ireland next month.
The 1.6-litre EcoBoost 182PS petrol Ford Fiesta ST has a top speed of 220kph and can accelerate from 0-100kph in 6.9 seconds.
Developed by the Ford Team RS, the Ford Fiesta ST includes some features previously found only in larger performance cars. These include 3-mode Electronic Stability Control (ESC), enhanced Torque Vectoring Control (eTVC), six-speed manual transmission and rear disc brakes.
The new model Ford Fiesta ST is 20 per cent more powerful than the outgoing model but at 5.9l/100km and 138g/km CO2 is 20 per cent more fuel efficient.
To ensure the engine roar is an integral part of the driving experience, a new Sound Symposer channels the engine note into the cabin.
Two versions of the Ford Fiesta ST will be available in Ireland – the Fiesta ST1 and the Fiesta ST2.
Standard spec on the Fiesta ST1 include ST design body styling kit, unique 17” alloys, ST rear spoiler, leather trimmed ST steering wheel and gearshift lever with red stitching, Recaro sport front seats with fabric trim, Ford SYNC and a specially tuned ST suspension with 15mm lowered ride height.
Meanwhile, the Fiesta ST2 adds a partial leather trim to the Recaro sport front seats, manual air conditioning, privacy glass, push button start and Sony CD + Ford SYNC.
Managing director of Ford Ireland, Eddie Murphy said: “The new Fiesta ST delivers remarkable levels of performance, design and quality to offer an unsurpassed driving experience in a small car.
‘With our heritage in the segment, our customers are connoisseurs of the hot hatchback and the new Fiesta ST speaks directly to that passion for performance driving.’
Prices for the new Ford Fiesta St start from €25,760.
