Whenever Ford releases a new version of the nation’s most popular car, it causes a stir throughout the motoring world, and this year’s all-new Fiesta is no exception. This is particularly the case with the sporting variants, and ever since the first Fiesta XR2 appeared in the early 1980s, fast Fiestas have been hot favourites with those who like to blend sporting performance with practicality. The latest ST-Line X does it better than ever.
Whatever trim level you choose, you are certain to cut a dash in the new generation Fiesta, but if it is a sporting look you want, the ST-Line X is the model to go for. It features the unique sports grill, body styling kit and rear spoiler of the ST-Line, but with larger 18” alloy wheels to give even more of a presence on the road.
LED daytime running lights come as standard, with Night Signature to the rear, making the car distinctive and noticeable in all conditions. The halogen projector headlamps provide fantastic night-time visibility, and the ST-Line X also features auto high beam.
The ST-Line X has an interior that belies the Fiesta’s great value and supermini heritage. Get behind the wheel and you immediately feel you are in something special. This is thanks to the part-leather sports seats, flat-bottomed sports steering wheel, centre console with illuminated cupholders, and sports pedals.
Additional comfort for drivers and passengers is provided by the electronic automatic temperature control system and the fantastic sound system, which uses Ford’s widely acclaimed SYNC 3 touchscreen technology, along with six speakers.
Back in the day, the first XR2 was powered by a 1.6 litre petrol engine. In today’s ST-Line X, we can see just how far technology has progressed. The 1.0 litre three-cylinder EcoBoost engine might be just 62 per cent of the size, but the 140PS version generates almost twice as much power, while returning more than 60 mpg.
The Fiesta ST-Line X comes equipped with sports tuned suspension as well as Ford’s innovative electronic Torque Vectoring System, which ensures that power is delivered safely to the road for a safe but truly engaging driving experience.
The all-new Fiesta is jam-packed with the latest technological innovations. In the ST-Line X, drivers are treated to the SYNC 3 navigation and entertainment system, which features an 8” touchscreen, emergency assist, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Other driver assist features include a 4.2” TFT instrument cluster and traffic signal recognition technology.
The ST-Line X also has a Quickclear heated windscreen, rain-sensing windscreen wipers and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, ensuring the driver has the best possible visibility, whatever challenges the British weather might present.
