THE ALL-NEW FORD FIESTA ST IS THE MOST RESPONSIVE, ENGAGING AND FUN-TO-DRIVE PERFORMANCE FIESTA EVER.
Featuring a range of innovative Sports Technologies that enhance power
and performance; cornering and agility; and versatility for scenarios from the
school run to race track.
The all-new Fiesta is powered by Ford’s all-new 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol engine – the first three-cylinder engine ever to power a Ford Performance model – delivering 200 PS and 290 Nm of torque for 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration in 6.5 seconds and a top speed of 232 km/h (144 mph).
Selectable Drive Modes feature on the all-new Fiesta ST for the first time, enabling engine, steering and stability controls to be configured to Normal, Sport and Track settings, and shifting the vehicle’s character from flexible everyday hatchback to track-focussed sports car at the push of a button. Optional Launch Control also helps drivers achieve consistently fast standing starts on track, supported by a dedicated graphical display in the instrument cluster.
Fiesta ST’s first optional mechanical limited-slip differential (LSD) optimises cornering grip, and segment-first, Ford-patented force vectoring springs deliver sharper turn-in, better rear-end responsiveness and a more connected feel.
The all-new Fiesta ST is available from launch in three-door and five-door body styles, offering comfort and convenience features including SYNC 3 connectivity, B&O PLAY premium audio; and sophisticated driver assistance technologies such as Lane Keeping Aid and Traffic Sign Recognition.
Every intelligent feature and smart system in the All-New Fiesta ST has a purpose. From making parking and motorway cruising effortless, and reversing easier, to helping you stay in lane, spot traffic signs and see what’s in your blind spot. And because this is a car made for performance, features like Launch Control can enhance your own natural driving skills too.
The All-New Fiesta ST is available with three Selectable Drive Modes: Normal, Sport and Track. Each setting fine-tunes the car’s performance by modifying engine mapping, throttle position, brake pedal and steering response. This combined with Enhanced Torque Vectoring, Electronic Stability Control, and a performance-tuned chassis, for optimal handling whether you’re driving on the motorway or enjoying a day on the track.
Inspired by the expertise of Ford Performance, the chassis and suspension of All-New Fiesta ST are tuned to deliver precision handling and exceptional control: their settings are also optimized by the selection of a drive mode. This is the first time a compact hot-hatch has incorporated force vectoring springs, which improve stability, agility and responsiveness. And in addition to a rear sports twist beam, frequency-dependent dampers automatically adjust to deliver accurate handling in all conditions.
A Lane-Keeping System uses a forward-looking camera to detect if you’re unintentionally drifting out of lane. Lane Keeping Alert then warns you by vibrating the steering wheel and displaying a visual warning. If you're slow to react or don’t respond, Lane Keeping Aid can provide steering torque assistance to help guide you safely back into the right lane. The technology is designed for multi-lane roads (like motorways), so will automatically deactivate at speeds below 43mph (65 km/h) or can be turned off manually.
Whether the signs are at the side of the road or above it, permanent or temporary, Traffic Sign Recognition can identify them. An icon of that speed or no-overtaking sign appears on the instrument cluster and changes every time you enter a new limit.
A useful night-driving aid, Auto High Beam temporarily dips your headlights when it detects oncoming traffic or a vehicle ahead, stopping you dazzling other drivers. Then it automatically reverts back to high beam, giving you maximum visibility.
A Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) uses RADAR sensors to scan the blind spots on either side of your Fiesta ST. And if they detect a vehicle you can’t see, an orange light that’s clearly displayed in the corresponding side door mirror illuminates to warn you. If you’re reversing out of a space, and have limited visibility of the traffic situation, Cross Traffic Alert can detect oncoming vehicles and sound a warning. The technology also illuminates a light in the wing mirror: left or right depending on the direction of oncoming traffic.
An important and potentially life-saving part of Ford SYNC is Emergency Assistance*. In the unlikely event of an accident, where the airbag is deployed or the fuel-pump deactivated, the technology can use a Bluetooth®-paired and connected mobile phone to help you make a direct call to the Emergency Services. You can choose to stop the call, or talk to those services if you need to. Crucially, the system will supply vital information, such as your GPS coordinates, even if you are unable to*.
Driver Alert constantly monitors your driving behaviour and is designed to detect any changes that could be caused by fatigue. If the system identifies you’re becoming less vigilant, a warning icon appears in the display, suggesting you take a break. If your driving alertness further declines, the message is repeated and combined with a chime.
Bollards, bicycles, low walls…The rear-view camera shows whatever’s behind you on the display screen. The system activates automatically when you select reverse gear and using virtual guidelines can help you park in the smallest of spaces.
Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) automatically adjusts to your speed and the conditions. At low speeds, the system makes wheel turns feel lighter and easier, improving maneuverability. At high speeds, when you need greater control, it firms up the steering. Now with drift control, EPAS also takes into account crosswinds and other driving conditions, while active nibble control reduces any unwanted vibration in the steering wheel.
Hill Start Assist temporarily stops you rolling backwards (or forwards) when making a hill start. The system works by maintaining pressure to the braking system for an extra 2.5 seconds, giving you more time and control as you move your foot from brake pedal to accelerator. It’s also useful when you’re stopping and starting on slippery surfaces.
The All-New Fiesta ST is powered by a potent 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol engine. Already impressive efficiency is increased by a particularly ingenious feature: a cylinder that deactivates automatically when it’s not required, saving fuel when you’re cruising. A series of additional technologies also help enhance the car’s performance whilst helping to save fuel.
Exceptional performance is powered by an all-new, three-cylinder 1.5-litre EcoBoost engine. The engine’s new turbocharger technology utilises an optimised turbine design which builds boost pressure faster. It also minimises lag. Designed to reduce friction with a two-stage oil pump and develop less vibration. In addition, the combination of port fuel injection and direct fuel injection technology helps deliver high power and responsiveness. The result: Fiesta ST delivers exceptional performance with 200 PS, a muscular 290 Nm of torque at 1,750 rpm and an anticipated 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) time of 6.5 seconds.
A mechanical slip differential is included with the optional performance pack. The system is designed to transfer engine power to the front wheel with the most grip. So as soon as one wheel starts to slip, power is automatically transferred to the other wheel to keep both wheels driving. The result: greatly improved traction on slippery or uneven surfaces and better acceleration and performance overall.
With Electronic Sound Enhancement and Active Valve Exhaust you’ll enjoy the Fiesta ST experience to the full. Why: because Active Valve Exhaust is a new technology designed to create a deeper, rumble and roar based on the amount of throttle you apply. And Electronic Sound Enhancement ensures you’ll hear the evocative engine when you’re behind the wheel.
Designed to deliver a consistent take off and maximise acceleration off the line, All-New Fiesta ST is equipped with Launch Control. Set the maximum rpm for the engine and you can put your foot flat on the throttle whilst the car holds your desired rpm.
The Performance Shift Light Indicator is designed to optimise your gear shifts and improve performance. This red-coloured ST logo is perfectly positioned in the rev counter and it illuminates to let you know the best time to shift gears.
When you stop at traffic lights or your Fiesta ST is idling in a queue, this technology can automatically switch off the engine while still supplying power to essentials like the headlights, air-conditioning and the Ford SYNC 3 system. When you're ready to move just depress the clutch, or press the accelerator on an automatic, and the system restarts. Auto-Start-Stop is particularly effective in towns and cities, where it can cut fuel consumption by up to 10% (urban cycle).
A 6-speed manual transmission is designed to help make the most of the power available to you. Shifts are short and fast and deliver smooth, precise performance with each and every gear change.
It‘s reassuring to know the 1.5-litre EcoBoost engine on Fiesta ST will meet Euro Stage 6.2 emission standards.
The best technologies should work effortlessly. They should always make life easier, more entertaining, more comfortable and rewarding too. That’s why the Fiesta ST comes with an advanced SYNC 3 system and B&O, as well as RECARO seats and many other invaluable features. Discover everything you need for better journeys, in a space that gives you all the comfort and convenience you could possibly want.
Whatever your taste in music, it deserves to sound as the artist intended. And that’s exactly what you can expect in Fiesta ST. Why? Because it’s available with B&O. This premium level 675-watt audio system delivers a rich, powerful sound via a 10-speaker, woofer and subwoofer inclusive set-up. And this advanced technology has been specifically designed, developed and fine-tuned for the Fiesta by B&O’s specialist acousticians. So turn it up and enjoy your favourite bands and songs in the concert hall that is your car’s cabin.
Ford SYNC 3 is a state-of-the-art system that enables you to stay connected and control your phone, music and navigation system with intuitive voice commands, or an 8” colour touchscreen. It connects to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto too, and with Applink, you can access some of your favourite smartphone apps. Live Traffic can also help you avoid the jams. And you can even call up a list of local restaurants just by saying “I’m hungry”, or access the Michelin Guide to help you choose and book places to eat (SYNC 3 is standard on ST-2 and ST-3 only).
To help you get the absolute most out of your Fiesta ST, it’s available with race-inspired RECARO sports seats. Highly supportive, these seats are optimised to give you the perfect position from which to control (and enjoy) your Fiesta ST. The seats are ST and RECARO branded and you can choose leather, Dinamica or full fabric trim options.
Unlike most cars its size, Fiesta ST comes with the option of a luxurious two-part, glass panoramic roof. This either tilts open, or slides back over the rear roof section to create a light and airy interior. Whilst the roof allows natural light to flood in, solar reflective glass keeps you cool and protects you from UV rays. A roof blind also enables you to cover or reveal the roof.
With optional Electronic Automatic Temperature Control, you just select the exact interior temperature you like and the system maintains it with advanced air conditioning.
This technology lets you set the maximum speed limit, set a seatbelt reminder and even control the volume of the audio system if you want to. Designed to give you peace of mind if you’ve lent your car to a friend or family member, Ford MyKey® is easy to use. Just insert a key into the ignition, start the car then follow simple instructions to program the restrictions you want to set for that key. You can keep the unrestricted ‘admin’ key yourself and even have more than one of both if you want.
Walk towards your car and the Ford KeyFree System senses the presence of your key fob, even if it’s in your pocket or bag. The doors unlock and when you take your seat there’s no need for an ignition key. Just depress the clutch, push the Ford Power Starter Button and the 1.5-litre EcoBoost engine fires into life.
This clever feature is designed to get you on the move quickly on frosty mornings. Just touch a button and ultra-thin filaments can superheat to de-ice, de-fog and de-mist your windscreen as well as help defrost the wipers. The system works in seconds, even if it’s below zero outside.
Ambient lighting lets you add a subtle and sophisticated colour tone to the vehicle interior at night.
It’s easy to bang your door against things in tight parking spaces. But open the door in a Fiesta ST and a protective barrier springs out to shield the paintwork on your car and those alongside.
It’s easy to damage wing mirrors when you’re driving in and out of tight spaces, or parked in a narrow street. Optional power-foldable mirrors can help avoid this by folding inwards at the touch of a button. And because they’re heated, you can get going quicker and more safely on frosty mornings.
The All-New Fiesta ST incorporates a series of advanced technologies designed to protect you, your passengers and your vehicle, in the event of an accident. Other systems exist to help prevent accidents in the first place.
Electronic Stability Control constantly monitors the progress of your Fiesta ST. It senses when a vehicle is losing grip and automatically applies a braking pulse to individual wheels, stabilising it. Using advanced sensors from the anti-lock braking and traction control systems it monitors the behaviour of the vehicle.
In addition to the driver and passenger front airbags, side airbags provide thorax protection and are designed to direct the occupant away from the impact area. They’re also able to raise the arm of the occupant providing better space between them and the intruding structure. Curtain airbags provide maximum coverage and headrests offer protection from whiplash. With front and rear seatbelt pre-tensioners and load limiters, plus seatbelt minders, Fiesta ST helps puts your safety first.
Anti-lock braking system (ABS) and electronic brake-force distribution (EBD) ensure that your braking is more controlled. Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) also helps your car brake more effectively in an emergency situation. It does this by sensing how much pressure you’ve applied to the brake yourself and automatically increasing it, if necessary.
A Thatcham Category 1 security system can be fitted that includes a perimeter alarm and double deadlocks. With double deadlocks a door cannot be opened from the inside, even if attempted entry has been made by breaking a side window. To activate double deadlocking, all you have to do is press the ‘lock’ button on the key fob twice.
Euro NCAP is Europe’s leading independent safety organisation. It evaluates the safety of any new vehicle using a series of stringent measures. And it’s a measure of Ford’s commitment to safety that Fiesta ST has received the highest rating: five stars.
It’s always important to keep your tyres at the correct pressure, to help you save fuel, preserve your tyres and help keep you safe. That’s why sensors constantly monitor every wheel and alert you if there’s a problem, so you can pull over, check it, and either re-inflate the tyre or change the wheel.
