The next-generation 2019 Ford Fiesta ST was revealed this year in March, at the 2017 Geneva Auto Show. The American market has been also expecting the new Fiesta ST to arrive as a 2019 model, although it has always had more fans and success in Europe. According to the information our team has got, the most obvious improvements will happen under its hood.
The exterior of the 2019 Ford Fiesta ST will not undergo some significant and distinctive changes as far as we have been informed. This is mainly due to the Fiesta’s global B-platform that has been seen on the current model and that the new model will also use. So, no drastic changes in terms of chassis, but minor visual refreshments still can be expected. This next-generation hatchback will be available in two versions when we talk about its body style, at least in Europe. When it comes to American market, the four-door configuration is more probable to hit the showrooms than a two-door. The new Fiesta ST will appear a bit wider in size and give you the sense of stability and easy maneuvering. It will also acquire sportier and more modern look which in combination with the affordable price makes this model an excellent choice for younger population. The front fascia will get a bit more aggressive design, especially the features such as new mesh grille and a massive bumper. The new ST will be standing on 18-inch wheels and it will offer a new body paint color – Liquid Blue.
The interior of the 2019 Ford Fiesta ST will represent a perfect combination of sporty and elegant cabin. It will be spacious and comfortable, covered in high-quality materials. It will provide Recaro bucket seats and a flat-bottomed sports steering-wheel. A real sports car and a real treat for the racing fans. The driver will also get an 8.0-inch touch-screen display with the Sync3 infotainment system and the next-generation features and connectivity options such as Apple Car Play and Android Auto. It will also be equipped with the Bang and Olufsen audio system. Safety systems and driver assist features will also be offered. Some of them include adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, forward collision warning, park assist and lane-departure warning.
We have already mentioned in the intro that the greatest change can be expected exactly under the hood of the 2019 Ford Fiesta ST. The new ST will replace the current 1.6-liter Eco Boost turbocharged four-cylinder engine and use a new 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine, same as new 2019 Ford Focu RS. The new engine will be made of lightweight aluminum and it will be more efficient. Ford will not change its 197 of horsepower, a six-speed manual transmission and a front-wheel-drive system. There is only a possibility of adding an automatic transmission as an option as well, but this has not been confirmed yet.
