Ford Fiesta ST Confirmed For South Africa

Ford Fiesta ST Confirmed For South Africa

Good News for Ford Fiesta fans, Ford last week Friday announced that they will be introducing the new Ford Fiesta ST locally. The Ford Fiesta ST was first unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year and most recently at the LA Auto Show. The Ford Fiesta ST is set for launch in South Africa in the first half of 2013.

“We’re delighted to be bringing a new generation Fiesta ST to South African performance enthusiasts in 2013,” said Ford Marketing Manager Gavin Golightly. “With the Fiesta ST joining the new Focus ST, we will again be able to deliver a choice of affordable small performance cars that are designed to deliver a unique blend of stand-out styling and dynamic on-road performance with true practicality for everyday use.”

The new Ford Fiesta ST is powered by a 1.6 litre EcoBoost engine delivering 132kW of power and 240Nm of torque. The 0 to 100km/h sprint takes under seven seconds according to Ford and has a top speed of 220km/h, all whilst maintaining frugal fuel consumption.

Developed by Ford Team RS, the new Fiesta ST delivers significant ride-and-handling improvements through the introduction of a specially tuned chassis that sits 15mm lower than the standard Fiesta; Ford’s enhanced Torque Vectoring Control system; and three Electronic Stability Control modes. The technologies were put to the test over 5000 kilometres of driving on Germany’s Nürburgring Nordschleife.

The new Fiesta ST features unprecedented levels of equipment and specification to suit the sporting driver, with standard Recaro sports seats. It will also be equipped with MyKey and SYNC™, Ford’s voice-activated in-car connectivity system. A new bold and dynamic exterior design drives home the high performance message and features the latest Ford design signatures including a large trapezoidal grille.
