Ever since the concept of the 2019 Ford Fiesta ST made its official debut at the 2017 Geneva Auto Show, this model has been keenly anticipated among its fans. However, we have to be honest and say that this hatchback has been much more popular in the European market, which is the reason it has already been on sale there while the US fans probably won’t see it coming.
- good value for money,
- more than decent engine choice,
- fun to drive,
- available LSD.
- no automatic transmission available.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Ford Fiesta ST, if this model actually hits the US market one day, they shouldn’t expect any major changes in terms of design. It would rather undergo some minor refreshments and visual updates. On the other hand, the European model has recently hit the market as a three-door hatchback that seems much more modern and attractive than the previous model. It definitely looks sportier thanks to its new mesh grille and massive bumper. We could even say it seems a bit aggressive and definitely promises some excellent performance. The chassis of the new Fiesta ST appears stiffer and the carmaker has also improved its suspension system. Therefore, the fans have the chance to even get an optional limited-slip differential. The new ST simply guarantees more stability and better handling. It stands on 18-inch alloy wheels and offers a choice of the new body paint – Liquid Blue.
The interior of the 2019 Ford Fiesta ST comes with a significantly improved interior, especially in terms of comfort and technology. Its sports seats are cozy and supportive, especially at high speeds. The cabin inside the new Fiesta ST simply combines those sporty and elegant features so well. Besides materials and overall comfort, the carmaker has paid some special attention to its high-tech area. It means that you will find an 8.0-inch touch-screen display with the latest SYNC 3 infotainment system. Apple Car Play and Android Auto are just some of those modern features that this hot hatch provides. When it comes to safety systems and driver assist features, the new Fiesta ST comes with adaptive cruise control, a rearview camera, 6 airbags, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane-departure warning, blind spot monitoring and others.
The 2019 Ford Fiesta ST comes with a 1.5-liter three-cylinder aluminum engine. It will replace the outgoing 1.6-liter turbo-four and it will be more efficient, like in Ford Focus RS. However, the output remains the same – 197 horsepower and the only available transmission is a six-speed manual. The new Fiesta ST comes with the front-wheel drive as standard.
