Ford has announced prices for its latest range of fast Fiestas – the ST and Zetec S.
Leading the new stable of small fast Fords, the Fiesta ST will be on-the-road at £13,595 and a competitive insurance rating of 13E.
The Fiesta ST (Sports Technologies) uses a 2.0 litre 150PS to sprint to 60mph in 7.9 seconds and on to a maximum speed of 129 mph. The chassis was tuned at Ford’s European testing facility at Lommel, where it managed the same lap time as the more powerful Focus ST 170.
The three-door Fiesta ST features a wider and deeper front grille, new bumper mouldings, discrete side skirts and a functional rear spoiler complement its low stance. Handsome multi-spoke alloy wheels with low profile, specially-tuned Pirelli P Zero tyres, create a bold, performance look.
The interior features special ST detailing and unique, partial leather sports seats, trimmed in red or blue cloth to co-ordinate with the choice of five exterior colours. The ST-exclusive option of twin sports stripes over the length of the car is available for only £150. Also available are side stripes at £75, and the combined pack of both stripe options will be available for £200.
Next up is the new Fiesta Zetec S. There is a choice of two engines, including the first performance diesel for Ford’s small car line-up, with prices starting at £11,595.
The Fiesta Zetec S shares some of the visual and dynamic features of its faster sibling, the new Fiesta ST, with roof-mounted spoiler, deep front and rear bumper mouldings, mesh front grille and supportive front sports seats with optional leather. It has 16-inch alloy wheels with ultra-low profile 195/45 R16 tyres.
Fiesta Zetec S will be available in four colours. Exclusive to Zetec S buyers will be Magnum Grey metallic paint, an option at £325.
The Zetec S offers a choice of two engines: the 1.6 litre 16 valve 100PS Duratec petrol engine and the newly introduced 90PS 1.6 litre 16 valve TDCi Duratorq turbo diesel.
