Ford Fiesta ST hatchback to be unveiled at LA Auto show 2011 in November 2011 - India launch at Auto Expo 2012




Ford is showing off a five-door version of the Fiesta ST, set to debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in two weeks. Fiesta ST Concept features a specially tuned 180-horsepower 1.6-liter Ford EcoBoost® engine to deliver spirited performance combined with fuel efficiency and low emissions.

The use of a 1.6-liter turbocharged unit in the Fiesta ST Concept and Ford's EcoBoost downsizing strategy in general reflects not only the current WRC engine guidelines but also the trend within international motorsports to deliver greater fuel economy through technological advancement.

The Fiesta ST's bold and assertive styling makes an immediate impression and drives home the high-performance message with a number of striking features and design themes. The large, distinctive trapezoidal grille echoes a key feature of its larger sibling, the new Focus ST, and incorporates a honeycomb mesh design.

At the rear a dramatic diffuser design leaves no doubt as to the sporting credentials of the Fiesta ST Concept. The diffuser also envelops a twin-exit exhaust.

A lowered stance, widened wheel arches filled with 17-inch alloy wheels and full ST body kit mirror the styling of the Ford Fiesta WRC competition car – an alluring form that also delivers racing functionality.
