Ford presented a concept model showing what a future Fiesta ST might look like when it joins the Focus ST in the company’s high-performance small car offerings.

The Ford Fiesta ST hot hatch has a silhouette inspired by Ford’s rally racing Fiesta RS WRC. The lowered stance with 17-inch alloy wheels and full ST body kit are all based on the Ford Fiesta WRC race car while the trapezoidal front grille with honeycomb mesh design is similar to that found on the Focus ST.

Like the rally car, the Fiesta ST Concept is powered by Ford’s 1.6 liter EcoBoost engine. Combining turbocharging and direct injection, the 1.6 l engine also features Twin-independent Variable Camshaft Timing to improve power and torque, just as in the upcoming Ford Focus ST. Ford claims an output of 180 hp and 177 ft-lb. of torque and a 0-100 kph (0-62) time of under 7 seconds.

    At last a truly sporty fiesta in the ‘old tradition’.
    Wouldn’t it have been nice to see slightly more extreme styling to distance it from the regular fiesta?
    And what about the pricing / Early on in 2011 there was speculation of price around £16 K but now speculation seems to be focussing on £18K.
    Would anyone like to hazard a guess on price? I shall be deciding on basis of price as there are a few nicely priced competitors out there.
