Ford Fiesta ST Starts from £16,995 in the UK
The Fiest ST will cost from £16,995, in the UK, and for the money you get a well-equipped ST1 model, with 17-inch alloys, tinted windows, sports Recaro seats, digital DAB radio as well as Bluetooth connectivity.
Pay £1,000 more, and you get the better-equipped range topper, the ST2, which adds part-leather upholstery, LED daytime running lights, climate control, uprated Sony sound system and keyless start and go.
Powered by a 1.6-liter EcoBoost turbocharged petrol engine, the Fiesta ST will sprint from 0-100 km/h or 0-62 mph in 6.9 seconds, before topping out at 218 km/h, or 136 mph. It is also expected to return over 40 UK mpg, if driven with care, and emit just 138 g/km of CO2.
The car is now available for order, with deliveries beginning later this year, in April.
