Ford has announced a new ST-Line model range for Europe, featuring vehicles with sporty styling inspired by Ford Performance and offering a range of powerful and efficient EcoBoost petrol and TDCi diesel powertrains.
Delivering bold exterior and interior designs inspired by Ford’s acclaimed Fiesta ST and Focus ST performance models, the new Focus ST-Line and Fiesta ST‑Line are designed for customers who aspire to the sporty image of Ford’s ST models, but do not require the full performance delivered by optimized ST engines and chassis with sports technologies.
Both Focus ST-Line and Fiesta ST‑Line are offered with a range of powerful engines including Ford’s multi-award-winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine; sport suspension and body styling; unique alloy wheel designs; and sport seats, sport steering wheel and alloy pedals for the interior.
Available in 3-door and 5-door bodystyles, the Fiesta ST-Line is a sporty new addition to Ford’s best-selling compact. The 5-door and estate Focus ST-Line models further enhance the appeal of the popular family car.
Ford ST-Line models deliver ST-inspired styling that includes: a honeycomb design for the trapezoidal front grille; fog lights with dark surrounds; a front bumper lip spoiler for Fiesta ST Line and bumper insert for Focus ST-Line; a rear diffuser element and large rear roof spoiler for both models; a black beltline with deep side-skirts, ST-Line exterior badging on the front wings;
17-inch Rock Metallic Grey wheels for both STs; Sport seats with red stitching; a perforated leather ST-style steering wheel with grey stitching; ST-style gear knob; a dark woven headliner; and ST-Line scuff plates. Meanwhile, the Focus ST-Line is offered with steering-mounted paddle shifters, when an automatic transmission is specified.
The new Ford ST-Line models are available only with high-power engine derivatives that complement the enhanced driving dynamics delivered by sport suspension; lowered by 10mm. The Fiesta ST receives the 100PS and 125PS 1.0-liter EcoBoost engines with five-speed manual transmission or 140PS 1.0-liter EcoBoost with five‑speed manual transmission. Also offered for Fiesta ST-Line is Ford’s 95PS 1.5-litre TDCi diesel with five-speed manual transmission.
The Focus ST-Line is offered with petrol powertrains ranging from 125PS to 182PS and with six-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmissions.
