New Ford Fiesta ST hot hatch stars at Geneva with new 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbo engine. Watch the video.
Ford has revealed a new Fiesta ST hot hatch, based on the upcoming seventh generation version of the supermini. The new ST family member is the firm’s headline act at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
The biggest news is the move to an-all new engine configuration. The 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbo used in the current car is out, replaced by a lightweight, aluminium 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbo.
The new motor produces 197bhp. That’s 17bhp up on the standard output of the current Fiesta ST, but equal to its ‘overboost’ figure. Torque swells from 240Nm to 290Nm, and Ford claims that the new Fiesta ST can crack 0-62mph in 6.7 seconds – two tenths quicker than the current generation model and on par with the ST200. A top speed just above 140mph seems likely.
Naturally, the downsized motor will be cleaner and more efficient than the outgoing four-cylinder. Ford reckons CO2 emissions for the new model will tumble from 138g/km to 114g/km, and with cylinder de-activation technology on-board, fuel-economy should improve too.
Speaking to Auto Express last year, Ford’s head of small cars in Europe, Darren Palmer spoke up the prospects of a three-cylinder ST, calling the new engine “promising”.
“It’s a great engine – it sounds brilliant and there’s loads of torque when the turbo comes on boost”.
However, the improvement... [Read More]

The Fiesta is kind of a British car, or it used to be. And there's nothing the Brits like more than a hot hatch. The love affair is going to continue into 2018 with the first 3-cylinder turbo in the Fiesta ST, but it stretches back many decades.
Perhaps the most iconic pocket rocket from the glorious past is the Fiesta XR2. Next to the 200 hp beasts of today, that one could be considered underpowered. From its 1.6-liter CVH engine, it could extract about 100 ponies and 131 Nm of torque. It weighed 839 kg and would do 100 km/h in over 10 seconds.
But it was nimble, and it was fun. Back in the early 2000s, the 4th generation had the Zetec S badge, but almost nobody remembers that one because of how hot the Puma was with its 1.7-liter Yamaha-tuned engine.
Fast forward to 2004, and we have the first Fiesta ST. Inspired by the success of the Focus ST, this supermini borrows a much bigger 2.0-liter engine from the regular Focus, adding ten more horsepower for a total of 150 PS.
It was cheaper but less powerful than the Clio RS of its era. I can still almost hear the popping of a Montune-equipped 190 PS Fiesta ST with racing camshafts and exhaust.
The outgoing generation is arguably the most popular ever. Switching to a 1.6-liter engine, Ford added power and torque and the friskiest handling average Joes could afford.
After yesterday's big reveal, we now know what awaits us in 2018. The third generation of the Fiesta ST will indeed have a three-cylinder 1.5-liter turbo engine. The power has gone up to 200 PS, matching the output of the previous model's overboost function.
Thanks also to the 290 Nm of torque, 0 to 100 km/h... [Read More]

At first, this video we've received from Polish website Motorfilm seemed to be a hoax. But after endlessly pausing the 17 seconds of footage, it's become clear that a teaser video for the new Fiesta ST has indeed been leaked.
This fact doesn't confirm the debut on February 24th, which is only two days away. However, given how close we are to the Geneva Motor Show, it makes perfect sense.
It's become a Ford tradition to debut a new car in Europe with shenanigans at one of its factories. This time, the Fiesta ST appears to be driven by a woman in a race against a suited man on a BMX. The action might be taking place at the Valencia factory where the little critter will be made (notice the old Fiesta is still on the line).
In our screenshots, you can make out the camouflage covering the car, which at first glance might appear white. The body kit is nearly identical to that of the 2018 Fiesta ST-line, which was revealed at the same time as the rest of the range in November. However, there's very obviously two exhaust pipes coming out the right side of the bumper.
The engine sounds a little muted, giving credibility to our expectations of a 1.5-liter being used in place of the 1.6-liter. Our theory is that it will produce the same 182 PS because of the way the output is always linked to the Focus with the same engine.
That would make it the least powerful car in the class. But even with 190 horsepower, it would find competing with things like the Cooper S or Clio RS difficult. That's why the goal for Ford will be to offer driving fun and affordability first.
Driving modes are pretty much a guarantee, but there was a rumor about ... [Read More]
