While the Fiesta SE trim keeps its typical styling, the newly added ST-Line saunters out with a Shadow Black roof while a body-color lower front fascia extension and black center airfoil underscore the high-gloss upper painted mesh grille insert, which is flanked by standard-fit fog lamps. Unique body-color side rocker moldings and Shadow Black mirrors delineate its side profile, pulled together by bespoke ST-Line logos on the front fenders. Twin chrome-tipped exhausts protrude from the rear lower fascia extension, and an integrated unique black diffuser with a high-mounted Shadow Black rear spoiler set off the parting view. Halogen headlights are standard across the board, and the SE trim is fitted with 15-inch steel wheels with silver-painted covers while the ST-Line rides on 16-inch ten-spoke black-painted aluminum wheels. While the SE can be optionally equipped with 16-inch alloys too, a power moonroof is optional for both trims.
The Ford Fiesta hatch has dimensions that are very much on par for the subcompact segment. With a length of 159.7 inches, a width of 67.8 inches, and a height of 58.1 inches, the hatchback rests on a wheelbase of 98 inches. The Fiesta SE weighs in at 2,536 pounds when equipped with the manual transmission and is only marginally lighter than the 2,575 lbs curb weight of the automatic variant. The ST-Line's body weight has been somewhat reduced to enhance performance and, as such, offers a fractionally lighter curb weight of 2,518 lbs in manual guise, and 2,562 lbs with the automatic setup.

While the ST-Line has access to only four exterior color options, the SE trim receives a paint palette of nine choices. Available for both models are Shadow Black and Oxford White as well as Outrageous Green and Hot Pepper Red, the latter two costing an additional $395. Also available for the SE trim is White Platinum Metallic Tri-coat that costs an extra $595. The Hot Pepper Red paint option is the most striking, it suits the sporty character and accentuates the Shadow-Black exterior accents of the ST-Line trim, creating a truly sporty image. For the SE trim, the Outrageous Green is an excellent choice to highlight the Fiesta's quirky nature and energetic style.
