Ford Fiesta MK7 ST200
The Ford Fiesta ST200, which debuted in 2016 as Ford celebrates the 40-year anniversary of Fiesta, is the most powerful production Fiesta ever. Compared with the acclaimed Fiesta ST, the Fiesta ST200 produced 10% more power and 20% torque with 200 PS and 290 Nm from an updated version of the 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine, with an additional 15 PS and 30 Nm of torque available for up to 20 seconds using transient overboost.
The Ford Fiesta ST200 completed the 0-100 km/h sprint in 6.7 seconds and delivered faster in-gear acceleration for improved drivability and an even more fun-to-drive experience. To further optimise the driving experience, Fiesta ST200 also features enhanced suspension and steering (Electronic Power Assisted Steering), elevating its award-winning dynamic handling and ride quality. A rear twist-beam with 27 per cent more roll-stiffness and a front anti-roll bar increased to 21 mm from 19 mm diameter support revised damper specifications for better impact absorption. Like the Fiesta ST, the ST200 sits 15 millimetres closer to the road than standard Fiesta models. Top speed is 230 km/h (143 mph). Ford Fiesta ST200 driving dynamics are supported by Enhanced Torque Vectoring Control (eTVC) and 3-mode Electronic Stability Control (ESC). The eTVC system applies brake force to the inside front wheel when cornering to improve road holding and reduce understeer without affecting speed. ESC offers full system intervention; wide-slip mode with limited intervention; and full ESC de-activation. Optimised braking is delivered with 278 mm front and 253 mm rear disc brakes, and a larger tandem brake master cylinder than standard Fiesta models.
On the outside, the hot hatch was equipped with exclusive specification including unique Storm Grey exterior, distinctive machined matt black alloy wheels and special interior detailing. It also featured red painted callipers alongside the ST-specification large trapezoidal grille with honeycomb construction, dynamic front spoiler and side-skirts, body-colour rear diffuser element and large rear roof spoiler. An enhanced interior specification included unique partial leather Charcoal Recaro front seats that are further distinguished with contrasting silver stitching, as are the seatbelts. Illuminated scuff plates incorporate the ST200 logo. Carbon fibre dashboard inserts, alloy-metal pedals and gearshifter, and an ST-specification steering wheel also featured for the atmospheric interior that contrasts dark materials and headliner with silver effect detailing. Finally, Ford’s SYNC voice-activated communications and entertainment system was available with 5-inch display.
