The Fiesta is unequivocal, the Ford wins in Europe. Making it one of the continent’s most popular cars, the manufacturer keeps remodeling it to keep its title. So today places to the sixth generation of the city. But before seeing her wandering on the roads, she takes a bath of crowds on the American manufacturer’s stand, in the fairways of Geneva 2017, under the watchful eyes of the ST version.
Powered by an all-new 1.5-liter EcoBoost 200-hp three-cylinder engine with cylinder deactivation, the third generation Fiesta ST will be the first Ford Performance model powered by a three-cylinder engine and is the first Fiesta ST to have Selectable driving modes (Normal, Sport and Track).
Finally, Fiesta ST offers exclusive equipment such as Recaro seats, 18-inch wheels, flat-bed steering wheel, shield, grille and spoiler, or the new Liquid Blue shade – a more discreet hair than the Nitrous Blue of the Focus RS.
In concrete terms, the American does not seem to be looking for pure power or performance up, but rather announces consumption down about 20%. In addition to using a 3-cylinder engine, Ford has integrated the deactivation system, which allows the new Fiesta ST (2017) to ride a twin-cylinder when the driver does not press too much on the right pedal. Commercialization is not planned until 2018, in 3-door or 5-door versions.
