Embrace the hot hatch philosophy in Seattle - with Ford introducing drivers to turbocharged performance. The 2017 Fiesta ST now prowls the downtown streets.
US News reports that Ford has (finally) unveiled its latest ST. This platform promises rally fun, with its 1.6L four-cylinder engine yielding 197 HP and 202 lb.-ft of torque. A six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission creates seamless responses, while three-stage traction control allows for precise cornering. Drivers can push the chassis to the limits, relying on vented disc brakes and a sport-tuned suspension to accommodate every mile. This is a true sub-compact powerhouse.
With that power comes surprising economy. Ford recognizes the need for efficiency, fusing its 2017 Fiesta ST with direct-injection technology. This ensures strong MPG capabilities (26 in the city and 33 on the highway) and allows this model to easily transition from the track to the suburbs.
Through this, US News explains that the new Fiesta proves a strong contender within the hatchback market - surpassing the far more expensive Volkswagen Golf R and Mini Cooper Works. Prepare for everyday performance and undeniable thrills.
