Ford Drops Seriously Fast and Fun Fiesta ST

Jul 26, 2013

The ST designation signals a model at the top of its performance game—a trim level that promises to be a thrill machine. Such is the case with the latest Blue Oval to wear the badge: the Fiesta. The Fiesta ST was first seen as a concept at the ’11 Los Angeles Auto Show, so it seems synergistic that the production model was unveiled at the ’12 show.

The numbers on this mighty mite impress: its 1.6L EcoBoost plant pumps out 197 hp and 215 lb-ft of torque on regular unleaded gas while providing a projected 34 mpg highway. Ford’s electronic Torque Vectoring Control and a driver-selectable, three-mode stability control system put the power down in a high-tech fashion.

The ’14 Fiesta ST features a sportier front fascia, sport-tuned suspension, 17-inch rollers, and a tricked-out interior with two-tone Recaros, a 6.5-inch LCD display, and an overall sporty aura.

A $22,000 price tag is rumored. The closer to $20K Ford can get it the better, but the ST is the top of the food chain for performance-minded B-segment cars like the Fiat 500 Abarth and Chevy Sonic RS.
