Lots of new equipment adds serious premium to the little hot-hatch.
Ford has introduced a new range-topping variant of the Fiesta ST dubbed the ST3. It features a host of additional goodies, including keyless entry, rain-sensing wipers, automated lights, DAB radio with sat-nav, and an auto-dimming rear view mirror. Other new features include power-fold door mirrors and cruise control, as well as optional rear parking sensors. At launch, the ST3 will be available in Frozen White, Race Red, Panther Black, Spirit Blue and Molten Orange.
Interior themes are limited to Smoke Storm and Molten Orange. Power will come from Ford’s 1.6-liter EcoBoost mated to a six-speed manual offering 180 hp and 214 lb-ft of torque. That will help it sprint from 0-62 mph in 6.9 seconds on to a top speed of 139 mph. The new top-of-the-range Ford Fiesta ST3 is on sale now in the UK, priced at £19,250. No word on when/if this will be rolled out in the US.
