Evoking the spirit of the classic XR2i, the Fiesta ST-Line takes the compact dimensions and engaging handling of the standard Fiesta and adds a welcome dollop of additional pace. It’s so good, AutoExpress describes it as ‘the best hot hatch in the business’.
The ST-Line is set apart from standard Fiestas by sporty stylish tweaks inside and out, enhancing the already-handsome Fiesta’s looks. Enhancements include re-profiled bumpers, a larger rear spoiler, a deep mesh grille, lowered suspension and special Y-design 17-inch alloy wheels.
Five confident colour options will help you stand out on the road too, while rear privacy glass on ST-2 and ST-3 versions adds to the menacing look.
The three-door ST-Line feels every bit the road-legal racer on the inside, with Recaro front sports seats holding you in place as you sweep through the bends. Gloss black dashboard inserts and a Sony stereo system in the ST-2 and ST-3 trims add to the luxurious feeling.
Every version includes luxuries like air conditioning, Bluetooth hands-free and audio streaming, voice control and a USB input port. Upgrading to ST-2 adds partial leather upholstery and heated front seats, while ST-3 models include dual-zone climate control.
It’s also easy to live with as an everyday car, thanks to split-folding rear seats that mean you can expand the 290-litre boot to carry awkwardly-shaped items.
The ST-Line is powered by a 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol engine with 180bhp, sprinting to 60mph in less than seven seconds. Opt for the limited-edition ST200 model and you’ll enjoy 198bhp. Both feature an overboost function that boosts power by around eight percent for up to 20 seconds.
Power is nothing without control, so whichever you choose you’ll enjoy the spirited handling characteristics and supple ride quality that motoring journalists love every Fiesta for. Race-inspired torque vectoring technology, uprated brakes and quicker steering makes the ST even more fun to drive.
Top-of-the-range ST-3 models add satellite navigation and cruise control so you can arrive at your destination feeling relaxed and calm, as well as automatic lights and windscreen wipers.
As with all Fiestas, the comprehensive safety system on the Fiesta ST means it boasts a maximum five-star rating from Euro NCAP.
