The new Ford Fiesta ST200, which debuts this year as Ford celebrates the 40-year anniversary of Fiesta, is the most powerful production Fiesta ever. Compared with the acclaimed Fiesta ST, the new Fiesta ST200 produces 10 per cent more power and 20 per cent more torque with 200PS and 290Nm from a specially calibrated 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol engine.
The Ford Fiesta ST200 sprints 0-62mph in 6.7 seconds and delivers faster in-gear acceleration for improved drivability and an even more fun-to-drive experience. To further optimise the driving experience, Fiesta ST200 also features enhanced suspension and steering, elevating its award-winning dynamic handling and ride quality.
Production of the new hot hatchback – equipped with exclusive specification including unique Storm Grey exterior, distinctive machined matt black alloy wheels and special interior detailing – begins this month, with first deliveries to customers soon after.
“The Fiesta ST is truly beloved by owners and critics. The ST200 takes this special drivers’ car to a new level of power and performance,” said Joe Bakaj, vice president, Product Development, Ford of Europe. “We think it’s a future classic in the making.”
“The Fiesta ST has been a hit with performance drivers because of its go-kart-like handling and powerful engine,” added Darren Palmer, small car vehicle line director, Ford of Europe. “The revised Fiesta ST200 chassis enhances composure and control, and improves passenger comfort as well.”
The Fiesta ST launched in 2013, delivering 182PS and 240Nm of torque from a 1.6‑litre EcoBoost engine and 0-62mph acceleration in 6.9 seconds – quickly establishing itself as the Europe’s leading compact performance hatchback and earning more than 20 awards around the world within its first year on sale. Ford has since sold more than 30,000 Fiesta STs in Europe.
The Fiesta ST200 is now available to order, priced at £22,745.
