Ford Fiesta ST Production Starts……Coming To Malaysia?
Ford has started production of the all new Fiesta ST at its assembly plant in Koln, Germany. 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 0-100km/h in 6.9 seconds and offer 182bhp and peak torque of 290Nm, with a fuel consumption of only 48mpg and 138g/km CO2 emissions. Top speed is 136mph.
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. There is no confirmation if this Fiesta ST will be launched in
the Malaysian market.
