Geneva 2017: New Ford Fiesta Makes Big Splash With ST Version

Attendees at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show were treated to the world premiere this week of the ST version of the next-generation Ford Fiesta.

For the new model, Ford is replacing the naturally aspirated 1.6L 4-cylinder engine with an all-new 1.5L 3-cylinder turbocharged EcoBoost version – the first 3-cylinder motor for the Ford Performance division. Power output remains unchanged at 197 hp, and 0-100 km/h acceleration is announced at 6.7 seconds. Drivers will be able to choose between three driving modes: Normal, Sport and Track.

We could provide you with further details, but figured it might be more fun for you to just check out this video:
