The main novelty of this week, and throughout the month of November, without doubt, has been the presentation of the new Ford Fiesta 2017, which took place last Tuesday in Cologne. 40 years after you launch it to the market for the first time, the brand of the oval has unveiled his sixth generation, which will arrive next year four bodies are distinct: Titanium, ST-Line, Vignale and Active; the last one being a version of type SUV.
One of the suv’s more like a public of the whole of Europe is precisely the Ford Fiesta ST. It is possible that between the competition is not the fastest in a circuit, but yes it is true that is one of the hottest cars fun to drive by making his point. The Fiesta ST current used by a motor 1.6 turbo that delivers 182 HP and 240 Nm of torque, making the 0 to 100 km/h in less than 7 seconds. The Fiesta ST200 is a slightly more dynamic with function overboost, which comes to 215 HP and 320 Nm for a few seconds.
Even with the introduction of the new Fiesta quite recent, there are already those who begin to shed light on the future Ford Fiesta ST. The trademark blue oval can’t waste the great won fame with the ST current and insurance that it will launch a new ST. According to the middle Dutch AutoRai, head of development of sports models of the company, Tyrone Johnson, we commented that the production would begin in 2018, although it would see a few months earlier, in 2017. Johnson also would have commented that it will be available in bodies of three and five doors.
Although it is difficult to know which engine and features give the new Ford Fiesta ST, the most logical thing would be to surrender a power slightly top 200 HP. Direct rivals such as the Peugeot 208 GTI or the Opel Corsa OPC already overcome that barrier since a few years ago, so surely the Fiesta ST too. On the other hand, we can expect that his step-by curve may be faster, having gained dimensions in width of the Fiesta’s normal, it is easy to perceive that the ST doing the same.
let’s Hope that Ford does not make him the same as Renault with the Clio Sport in terms of the transmission, and it will continue to offer the manual change of six speeds. It would not be surprising that there would be a dual-clutch with paddles is optional. By request, there would be more of a limited-slip differential mechanical, but is also optional.
