The Ford Fiesta ST Concept combines eye-catching, muscular and sporty styling with a dynamic sports chassis and a high-performance powertrain capable of delivering impressive fuel economy with low CO2 emissions.

With the Ford Fiesta RS World Rally Car and Fiesta Rallycross cars currently demonstrating the potential of Ford’s global small car in the toughest of international motorsport events, there could be no better time for Ford to offer customers a glimpse of what is also technically possible with the road-going Fiesta.

Like Ford’s World Rally Championship contender, the Fiesta RS WRC, Ford Fiesta ST Concept uses a 1.6-litre Ford EcoBoost petrol engine to deliver performance every bit as breathtaking as the vehicle’s striking design.

The use of a 1.6-litre turbocharged unit in the Ford Fiesta ST Concept and Ford’s EcoBoost downsizing strategy in general reflects not only the current WRC engine guidelines, but also the trend within international motorsport to deliver greater fuel economy through technical advancement.

Like the 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine that will power the forthcoming Ford Focus ST, the 1.6-litre EcoBoost in the Ford Fiesta ST Concept also features Twin-independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT) and has been specially developed to provide power and torque worthy of the ST badge.

For the Ford Fiesta ST Concept, the 1.6-litre Ford EcoBoost engine achieves a target power output of 180PS with 240Nm of torque, enough to propel the concept vehicle from 0-100km/h in less than 7 seconds. A top speed exceeding 220km/h is possible.

Yet the advanced design of the turbocharged, 4-cylinder engine – connected to a 6-speed manual transmission – means the Ford Fiesta ST Concept is also able to deliver target CO2 emissions of lower than 140g/km.

Improving fuel economy and emissions remains one of the driving factors behind Ford’s continuing development of the EcoBoost engine family, with the Ford Fiesta ST Concept proving that responsible and attractive fuel economy need not come at the expense of performance.

The Ford Fiesta ST’s bold and assertive styling makes an immediate impression and drives home the high performance message with a number of striking features and design themes. The large, distinctive trapezoidal grille echoes a key feature of its larger sibling, the new Focus ST, and incorporates a honeycomb mesh design.

At the rear a dramatic diffuser design leaves no doubt as to the sporting credentials of the Ford Fiesta ST Concept. The diffuser also envelops a twin exit exhaust.

A lowered stance, widened wheel arches filled with 17-inch alloy wheels and full ST body kit mirror the styling of the Ford Fiesta WRC competition car – an alluring form that also delivers racing functionality.

An all-new exterior paint colour in Europe – Molten Orange, as featured in the North American Ford SVT F-150 Raptor pickup – reinforces the invigorating, racing spirit of the Ford Fiesta ST Concept.

This theme is continued inside the high-contrast sports interior which includes Recaro sports seats for the driver and front passenger.

Taking inspiration from Ford’s competition Fiestas in the World Rally Championship (WRC), Global Rallycross Championship (GRC), European Rallycross Championship (ERC) and X Games, the Ford Global Performance Vehicles group has developed the Ford Fiesta ST Concept to deliver uncompromised sports performance and handling.
