Ford News: Next Ford Fiesta ST To Be Revealed On Friday

Recommended Posts

Ford has teased the next-generation Fiesta ST before its official debut later this week. In a video posted to Ford's Instagram, a pre-production model is seen driving through a factory. From what we can see, it looks like the ST will look similar to the standard Fiesta ST-Line shown back in November. We're expecting some other design changes to make the ST stand out from other Fiesta models. No word on the powertrain, though some suspect it will a 1.5L EcoBoost three-cylinder four-cylinder.

Ford doesnt have a 1.5L EB 3cyl. 

The 1.5L in the Ford EB engine line is a 4cyl.

Nonetheless, this car will be a hit. Just like the current generation.

Looks like a solid competitor to the Chevy Spark.

Honestly the Spark has never been a competitor to the Fiesta ST.

The Fiesta is sort of in between the Spark and Sonic in substance, although the ST has been the only real performance option.

I'm thinking more Sonic like, but agree......might be time to do something useful with the Sonic now.....

I have wished for a Sonic to compete with the ST.  Would have preferred it be done before they completely screwed up the Sonic's design in the latest refresh though.......

We need a Sonic RS with some substance, a Fit Si and a Polo GTI now. Hot hatches for everyone!!!!! 

Yes, Yes, YESSSSS

Bring on the hot hatches!!

The only vehicle that really competes with the Fiesta ST is the Abarth and Cooper S, right? And those will never sell in large numbers so Ford really kind of owns the market until GM puts a real RS to the Sonic.

Does VW make a GTI version of the Polo, just not here?

I may or may not have been falling asleep when writing this story.

That looks awesome! What're the numbers on'r ?

They're a turbo 1.8 w/ 190hp, and like right at 200tq for the DSG cars, and bit more (215~?) with a stick.

Nice! I actually just looked it up.. The DSG 7spd vs the 6spd are pretty significant..

192hp

DSG: 184tq

6spd: 236tq

The Polo is definitely the best looking sub compact car though. Nothing flashy just clean and simple. That's probably also one reason I really like the Golf as well.

As much as I wish we got the Polo here.. realistically I wouldn't consider something smaller than the Golf anyway. So, while it would be nice to have here I don't know how many people would buy these anyway.
