The new Ford Fiesta ST has arrived in UK showrooms and already orders for this new sporty model have exceeded fifteen thousand. Priced from £16,995 this new model will no doubt be an instant success as this price is approximately two thousand pounds less than all relative competitors.
Mark Ovenden, Ford Britain managing director said “the UK’s renowned love affair with fast Fords is about to get another boost, we have had fantastic success with the new Focus ST, and the Fiesta ST will deliver similar thrills to a whole new audience and at a uniquely accessible price.” The Ford Focus ST is a hugely exciting car; it took centre stage in the blockbuster film ‘The Sweeney’. Powered by an advance direct injection 2.0 litre all alloy turbocharged four cylinder Eco Boost engine the car doesn’t disappoint and is for real driving enthusiasts.
The new Ford Fiesta ST is powered by a 1.6 liter Ford EcoBoost all-aluminium, four cylinder petrol engine which combines high pressure direct injection, low inertia turbocharging and twin independent variable cam timing. The new Fiesta ST is capable of 0-62mph in just 6.9 seconds, co2 emissions are 138g/km and fuel economy is good returning 47.9mpg. The car is offered in a three door bodystyle and boasts a black honeycomb trapezoidal front grille, a large rear spoiler with twin air vents and a twin exhaust. This really is one sporty looking car and colour choices are just as striking with choices such as Molten Orange and Spirit Blue. More sporty looks are available with the optional style pack which adds red brake calipers and grey alloy wheels.
Standard specification is impressive including 17” alloy wheels, halogen projector headlamps, ST front fog lights, DAB radio, SYNC connectivity, Thatcham CAT1 alarm, Recaro seats and air conditioning. Ford’s new technology MyKey is also included, keys may be configured with a variety of settings and feature Speed Control which gives the owner the ability to limit the top speed to 80 mph plus Volume Control allowing the owner to adjust the volume of the radio remotely and Beltminder to remind the driver to buckle their seat belt by muting the vehicle's radio and chiming for six seconds every minute for five minutes. If you opt for the ST trim then you get partial leather heated Recaro seats, Sony DAB radio, Ford keyless start, privacy glass and LED daytime running lamps.
No doubt the fifteen thousand orders are rising daily for this sporty new Fiesta so if your order is in deliveries are due to start in early March.
