Ever since Ford made its international debut with its newest Fiesta ST at the 2017 Geneva Auto Show, the fans have been looking forward to see the changes and improvements that have happened in terms of design and technology, but also under the hood. According to the information our team has got, the new Fiesta ST has been on its way to hit the market as a 2019 model.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Ford Fiesta ST, this model is going to make its appearance as a sporty hatchback that will probably come out in two body styles – a three-door and a five-door configuration. It has also been said that the new Fiesta ST will keep using the Fiesta’s B-platform. It means that it will retain the same general dimensions, but the wheelbase might get a bit wider. This will largely improve the stability and handling of this model, especially at high speeds. We must say that the fans should not hope for some evolutionary changes in terms of exterior features. The most distinctive will probably be its aggressive front fascia with a new mesh grille and massive sporty bumper. The new ST will definitely appear more dynamic, attractive, modern and sportier. It will be especially good choice for younger customers. This model should be standing on 18-inch alloy wheels and offer a new exterior color – Liquid Blue.
The interior of the 2019 Ford Fiesta ST will perfectly combine sports bucket seats with some elegant details. The cabin is expected to be comfortable and spacious and Ford will use only high-quality materials to furnish it. It will also undergo numerous updates and improvements in terms of technology. Besides the flat-bottomed steering wheel, a driver will also get an 8.0-inch touch-screen display with the latest SYNC 3 infotainment system. This will provide numerous next-generation features such as navigation, satellite radio, premium audio system, Apple Car Play, Android Auto and other connectivity options. The new Fiesta ST will also include necessary safety systems and driver assist features such as adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, park assist and forward collision warning.
When it comes to engine options that the 2019 Ford Fiesta ST will offer under its hood, it seems that this model will abandon its current 1.6-liter Eco Boost four-cylinder. Instead, it might use the new, more efficient and more eco-friendly engine made of lightweight aluminum. It will be a 1.5-liter three-cylinder turbo that is expected to deliver at least 197 horsepower. A six-speed manual transmission will probably not change.
2019 Ford Fiesta ST Release Date and Price
The release date of the 2019 Ford Fiesta ST has not been officially confirmed yet, but it should be expected sometime in early 2018. The estimated price of this model starts around $19,000.
