Ford heads back to XR2i heartland with FiestaST

Ford will mark its return to the ultra competitive hot-hatch sector when it unveils a high performance version of the Fiesta next month. The FiestaST gets its world debut at the Geneva motor show with a new Sport Technologies badge, which will feature on all future ST models. The 2.0-litre 150bhp three-door gets new front and rear bumpers, new side and rocker mouldings and colour-keyed details like body colour door handles, rub strips, and 17-inch alloy wheels.

“The new FiestaST puts Ford back into the heartland of small-car performance in a great-to-drive package that's accessible for driving enthusiasts to own and insure,” says Paul Thomas, Ford of Britain managing director. The FiestaST will go on sale in the UK towards the end of the year. Specification and prices will be announced nearer the time.
