Do 250-hp Ford Fiesta? In 2017 it could become a reality with the RS

Return to load the rumours about a Ford Fiesta more prestacional, rumors now coming from Germany and we speak of a Ford Fiesta RS willing to raise to a new level the category of small GTI going a step beyond the performance Audi S1 and MINI John Cooper Works.

This Ford Fiesta would be in the top of the small GTI:

The main stumbling block to envision these rumors becoming reality is the time that it already carries with us the Ford Fiesta.

250 horsepower and all-wheel drive. A few credentials that we had already heard earlier, and that now they are again present from the hand of the German edition of Auto Bild and they even point out that his debut would be apparently programmed for the 2017.

This date would coincide with the 40th anniversary of the Ford Fiesta, a good reason to take to the streets such alternative, although its relative remoteness makes us question ourselves as to assume the current Ford Fiesta, with a facelift introduced in late 2012, the passage of time, the main stumbling block to give you all the credibility that we would like to this idea.

An image even more sporting, an up-to-point more radical… yes the Ford Fiesta ST has already been able to achieve a recognizable gap between the small GTI how will be able to this RS version?

While we wait impatient to the resolution of these rumors, with the undeniable hope of ever seeing it become a production model, it should be remembered that currently the alternatives more performance of the segment are in the hands of the above-mentioned Audi S1 and MINI JCW with 231 horses in both cases and a price of 35.130 euros and 31.750 € respectively. In addition, we also cannot lose sight of an Peugeot 208 GTI by Peugeot Sport with 208 horses, a spectacular staging and a starting price of 24.930 euros.
