Ford May Not Build A Fiesta RS, Still Planning A More Powerful Hot Hatch


Could be revealed next month.

After shooting down rumors of a RS-badged Ford Fiesta, Ford is now rumored to be engineering a hotter version of the hatchback. A recent report from Autocar suggests Ford may be making a peppier version of the Fiesta ST dubbed the “ST Plus.” Since Ford is planning seven new vehicles for this year, a faster Fiesta ST makes sense, but, again, these rumors need to be taken with a heavy dose of salt. A hotter variant of the Fiesta ST would be more powerful and faster.

COBB Tuning is a major player in the US that has managed to boost the Fiesta ST’s 1.6-liter turbocharged engine by roughly 23-percent more horsepower and 41-percent more torque. So the Fiesta ST Plus would have to make the same amount of power or wear some sort of radical bodykit to stick out. Autocar believes the hatchback will make an appearance at next month’s Geneva Motor Show.
