Ford has revealed the facelifted version of the current-generation Fiesta ST, with the new baby hot hatch set to enter Australian showrooms in the first quarter of next year with more torque and technology than its predecessor.
When the Fiesta ST is tearing it up on the streets or track, the facelift will stand out from the crowd thanks to its new front fascia, which is highlighted by a larger grille (with the repositioned ‘Ford’ badge) as well as redesigned bonnet and bumper. The headlights have also been overhauled, sitting flatter and offering adaptive Matrix LEDs for the first time.
Meanwhile, the side is punctuated by a fresh set of 18-inch alloy wheels finished in Magnetite, and the only change to the rear end is to the tail-lights, which now have black surrounds. Boundless Blue and Mean Green are new paintwork options, by the way.
Inside, the Fiesta ST has added a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster as well as fresh front ‘performance’ seats with integrated headrests and 14-way driver adjustment, black Sensico artificial leather upholstery with red stitching, and matte carbon-fibre trim.
