New Ford Fiesta for 2017

Ford have revealed the brand new Ford Fiesta for 2017.

The Ford Fiesta is the best selling mini car in the UK with a combination of savvy interiors, exciting range of colours and sharp handling, but is about to be taken to a whole new level with the reveal of the 2017 Fiesta.

Although the New Fiesta won’t be much bigger on the outside it will feel a lot bigger on the inside, a reshaped dashboard will replace the button controls with a stylish touchscreen and infotainment system by Bang & Olufsen.

The popularity of the current Fiesta means we will find that the outside appearance hasn’t changed a lot  – but that is because, quite simply it works. The horizontal tail lights, the broader front grille, the slimmer headlights will make the Fiesta more sophisticated.

The engine will range from the current 1.0 litre EcoBoost to a 1.5 diesel with the addition of the 1.1 litre with either 69bhp or 84bph. The 1.0 litre 3 cylinder EcoBoost is the first to feature ‘cylinder deactivation’ saving up to 6% on emissions and efficiency, meaning cylinders can switch off when not in use.

The range will include the ST-line, Titanium, Vignale and the Active (based on an SUV and not due until 2018)

John Charles owner and Managing director of Brakes Motor Company was invited to Cologne to see first hand the brand new Fiesta revealed.

The ST 200 is here.

The ST 200 is a limited edition with a specially tuned engine

Fiesta ST200
In addition to the exclusive exterior colour and 17-inch alloy wheel specification, Fiesta ST200 models also will feature red painted brake callipers and an enhanced interior with unique partial leather Charcoal Recaro front seats and contrasting silver stitching, alongside illuminated scuff plates and seatbelts with silver detailing.

The Fiesta ST200’s 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine can deliver an additional 15PS and 30Nm of torque for up to 15 seconds using transient overboost. A 4.06 ratio final drive – shortened from 3.82 in the Fiesta ST – further enhances in-gear acceleration for improved drivability and an even more fun to drive experience. Top speed is 143mph.

Like the Fiesta ST, the ST200 delivers optimised cornering and agility using:

  • Enhanced Torque Vectoring Control and 3-mode Electronic Stability Control
  • A specially modified front steering knuckle
  • An adapted rear twist-beam with increased roll-stiffness
  • Unique front and rear spring and damper settings with a 15 mm lower centre of gravity
  • Sharper 13.69:1 steering ratio and shortened steering arm
  • Enhanced braking system with a larger tandem brake master cylinder and rear disc brakes
