Ford has started production at its assembly plant in Koln, Germany, of the new Ford Fiesta ST.

The new model in Europe features a unique new honeycomb mesh trapezoidal grille exterior and dramatic rear diffuser element. The high contrast interior is also equipped with Recaro seats as standard for the first time.

Developed by Ford Team RS, the European arm of Ford Motor Company’s Global Performance Vehicle group, the new Fiesta ST for Europe is powered by a 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol engine to achieve 0-62mph in 6.9 seconds and offer 182PS and peak torque of 290Nm, with a fuel consumption of only 48mpg and 138g/km CO2 emissions. Top speed is 136.7mph.

Ford has further refined the Fiesta ST’s renowned global small car chassis with new steering, suspension, braking components, configuration and tuning. An enhanced version of Ford’s Torque Vectoring Control system, and a three-mode Electronic Stability Control system contribute to a rewarding and secure driving experience.

With UK sales forecast at 5,000 a year, more than half of European Fiesta ST production is destined for Britain.
