Ford has completed its roll-out of Fiesta variants for the all new 2017 model, announcing the first details of the next-generation Fiesta ST hot hatch.

The Fiesta ST’s official debut will occur at the Geneva Motor Show next week, with the new car representing a major change compared to the model it replaces.

The biggest change sees the Fiesta ST adopt a new 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine in place of the outgoing model’s 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbo engine. Outputs for the new engine are rated at 147kW and 290Nm, a step-up of 13kW and 40Nm over the old 1.6.

Ford claims a 100km/h sprint of 6.7 seconds, shaving 0.2 seconds of the previous figure but the bigger change has been made to fuel consumption, with a sub 5.0 l/100km estimate versus 6.2 l/100km for the previous model.

The new engine features cylinder deactivation, capable of shutting down one cylinder to run as a 1.0-litre twin under light load to further fuel savings

The car joins Ford's Focus RS by introducing new driving modes with Normal, Sport and Track settings that affect its engine, steering and stability control behaviour, though the Fiesta's front-wheel-drive layout means Drift Mode is off the menu.

New features will include 18-inch wheels, an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and the availability of high-end Bang & Olufsen stereo. The interior will also be home to Recaro sports seats and a flat-bottomed steering wheel.

On sale in Europe this year in three-door and five-door form, the model is on Ford's Australia's radar for a local debut soon.
