First ride: 2018 Ford Fiesta ST

  • Ford Fiesta ST The car’s ride seems quite a lot softer and calmer than it was – and deliberately so
  • Ford Fiesta ST The Ford Fiesta ST was close-to untouchable as an affordable driver’s car, and the new one is now just months away
  • Ford Fiesta ST We had a passenger ride in the Fiesta ST at Ford"s Lommel proving ground
  • Ford Fiesta ST The wiggly Lommel course is just the right sort of place to tease a near-perfect adjustable handling balance out of a front-driven performance car
  • Ford Fiesta ST Autocar"s Matt Saunders (left) was driven by David Put, Ford Performance vehicle dynamics specialist
  • Ford Fiesta ST Moving from four cylinders to three, the new Fiesta ST’s engine has only lost about 100cc of displacement
  • Ford Fiesta ST Its peak power and torque outputs (197bhp, 236lb ft of torque on overboost) are exactly as they were, while engine weight has decreased slightly
  • Ford Fiesta ST The new ST is two tenths of a second quicker-accelerating to 62mph than the old ST200
  • Ford Fiesta ST The big advantages to the new engine are on efficiency and emissions. Carbon emissions tumble from 138g/km to just 114
