We love the Fiesta ST just the way it is, even if it's not the fastest thing in the world. But if you want the Fiesta STs chuckable chassis with giant-slaying power, Mountune's American branch has you covered. Ken Anderson, president of Mountune's US operations, told us the company will release a turbo upgrade kit for Ford's tiniest hot hatch that will bump output to a ridiculous 280 horsepower at the flywheel.
Like Mountune's Focus ST MRX kit, the Fiesta ST MRX upgrade will include a larger turbocharger with an accompanying ECU tune. The turbo is sourced from the Garret GT2554R line and will bolt right on to the stock exhaust manifold. Mountune will also offer custom tunes to owners with additional modifications. As for the rest of the details, Anderson said they would be revealed when the kit goes on sale later this year.
This kit will be about as close as you'll be able to come to a Fiesta RS. Any hopes for a super-powered Fiesta from the factory were dashed this past January when a Ford engineer revealed that company big wigs weren't keen on the idea. Thank goodness for the aftermarket.

Ford's tiny EcoBoost turbo three-cylinder could find its way into the Blue Oval's teensiest hot hatchback.
by Chris Perkins, Sep 30, 2016
Does anyone dislike the Ford Fiesta ST? We haven't met one who does, and what's more, two of our staffers daily drive 'em. That's a good thing for Ford, but it also means it's got a pretty big task developing a new Fiesta ST when the current one goes out of production. Ford has already started preliminary work on the next Fiesta ST, and it might mean big news under the hood. Or, well, small news.
Auto Express reports that Ford is considering ditching the current Fiesta ST's turbocharged four-cylinder in favor of its 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder. Currently, that engine makes 123 horsepower in the Fiesta SE EcoBoost, but it's got headroom–Ford tuned one to 205 horses, and installed it in a Formula Ford race car.
"We're seeing more and more of what we can do with the 1.0-liter engine in development and the signs are promising," Ford's European head of small cars Darren Palmer told Auto Express. "It's a great engine—it sounds brilliant and there's loads of torque when the turbo comes on boost, so we're looking... [Read More]
This is the Ford Fiesta ST200 hot hatchback and it brings with it more than just a limited edition badge.
Powered by a 1.6 litre turbocharged engine producing 197bhp and 214lb ft of torque, but for 20 seconds that rises to 212bhp and 236lb ft on overboost.
0-62mph takes 6.7 seconds and the ST200 has a top speed of 143mph. It is a pocket rocket.
We see if the sizzling new DS 3 Performance Black has what it takes to beat the Ford Fiesta ST200 and MINI JCW Sport
French manufacturers have a rich history in the hot hatch market. Search through the back catalogue of cars in this class and you’ll find a trail of brilliant models from the other side of the Channel – and since DS split from Citroen and set out on its own as a standalone brand, there’s a new small performance car on sale.
While the DS 3 has been offered in hot guise in the past, the DS 3 Racing was branded as a Citroen and only 200 cars came to the UK. There’s no cap on production of the new DS 3 Performance we’ve lined up here, with the company aiming to bring luxury and speed to the masses. But there’s a glut of talented hot hatches that have been doing this very convincingly for a long while now.
Ford’s Fiesta ST is a sublime-handling, tuned three-door, and here in new limited-edition ST200 guise it boasts some unique design features to set it apart from the rest of the range – not to mention a power hike. Meanwhile, the MINI John Cooper Works aims to offer a premium alternative to the ST, mixing the DS’s luxury with just as much performance potential.
However, when the Fiesta and JCW last... [Read More]
An Autocar rendering of how the next-generation Ford Fiesta could look
The next Ford Fiesta will boast a higher-quality interior and more mature looks; set to go on sale early next year
by Steve Cropley, 11 August 2016
The next-gen Ford Fiesta will build on the current car’s success with more mature looks and a higher-quality cabin.
The design and mechanical layout of the seventh-generation Ford Fiesta supermini, due to be unveiled at the end of this year, has been heavily influenced by two familiar small cars.
One is the new budget Ka+, which promotes the Ka nameplate from the A-segment to the B-segment and frees the new Fiesta to move to a ‘mainstream premium’ position in Ford marketing parlance.
The other influencer is the current, sixth-generation Fiesta, which is still setting records after seven years on sale. Its enduring popularity and great road ability reassure Ford that its customers will be happy with an evolutionary car.
“The current Fiesta has been so successful,” one Ford insider told Autocar, “that it has earned the right to evolve.”
Like the current car, the new Fiesta will be based on Ford’s Global B platform, also used in a simpler form for the Ka+. That means the new Fiesta will be very similar in overall length and wheelbase to the existing car, although there is talk of slightly wider tracks.
Clues to chassis spec came to life with the current Fiesta ST, when suspension engineers decided the twist beam rear suspension needed retooling to preserve handling balance and improve ride comfort. But the investment needed was not... [Read More]

The Fiesta is 40 and quick ones have been around nearly as long - here are five of the best
The Ford Fiesta is forty. That it's reached the four decade mark is impressive on its own. That it's been one of the biggest-selling cars in the country for that entire time even more so.
But there's another side to the Fiesta: Performance. When it arrived in 1976, the concept of the hot hatchback was at an embryonic stage, but Ford quickly realised a sporty version would hold great appeal.
Forty years later and with the Fiesta ST200 hitting the streets, that's still very much the case. Below you'll find five of the best fast Fiestas, and we explain just what made them so special.
The Supersport wasn’t technically the first sporting Fiesta – that was the 1300 Sport – but it was very much the precursor to the XR2 that followed in the second generation.
With 89bhp from its 1.3-litre engine and a 775kg kerb weight it was certainly lively by the standards of early 1980s shopping cars, and like the XR2 the styling still looks great today – think stripes, spotlights,... [Read More]
