Ford of Europe today announced a new ST-Line model range, featuring vehicles with sporty styling inspired by Ford Performance and offering a range of powerful and efficient EcoBoost petrol and TDCi diesel powertrain options.

ST-Line launches with the Fiesta ST-Line and Focus ST‑Line – both available to order now.

Delivering bold exterior and interior designs inspired by Ford’s acclaimed Fiesta ST and Focus ST performance models, the new Focus ST-Line and Fiesta ST‑Line are designed for customers who aspire to the sporty image of Ford’s ST models – but do not require the full performance delivered by optimised ST engines and chassis with sports technologies.

Both Focus ST-Line and Fiesta ST‑Line are offered with a range of powerful engines including Ford’s multi-award-winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine; sport suspension and body styling; unique alloy wheel designs; and sport seats, sport steering wheel and alloy pedals for the interior.

“With our new ST-Line range even more customers can experience sporty style and driving dynamics inspired by our most exciting Ford Performance line-up ever, that includes models such as the Focus RS, new Fiesta ST200 and Ford GT supercar” said Roelant de Waard, vice president, Marketing, Sales & Service, Ford of Europe. “This year we expect to sell 40,000 performance cars in Europe, a 50 per cent increase compared with 2015, which in turn saw performance car sales rise by 61 per cent compared with 2014.”

Sporty styling
Available in 3-door and 5-door bodystyles, the Fiesta ST-Line is a sporty new addition to Europe’s best-selling small car line-up. The 5-door and wagon Focus ST-Line models further enhance the appeal of the popular family car.

Ford ST-Line models deliver ST-inspired styling that includes:

  • A honeycomb design for the trapezoidal front grille; fog lamps with dark surrounds; and a front bumper lip spoiler for Fiesta ST Line and bumper insert for Focus ST-Line
  • A rear diffuser element for both models and large rear roof spoiler for Fiesta ST-Line
  • A black beltline beneath the windows, deep side-skirts and ST-Line exterior badging on the front wings
  • Unique 16-inch alloy wheels for Fiesta ST-Line and 17-inch alloy wheels for Focus ST-Line, both in Rock Metallic Grey
  • Sport seats with red stitching and a perforated leather ST-style steering wheel with grey stitching
  • ST-style gear knob, a dark woven headliner, and ST-Line scuff plates

The Fiesta ST-Line is offered with petrol engine options including:

  • 100 PS and 125 PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost engines with five-speed manual transmission delivering 99 g/km CO2 emissions and 4.3 l/100 km (65.7 mpg) fuel efficiency**

“The new Fiesta ST-Line and Focus ST-Line will offer customers a chance to enjoy the famous fun-to-drive characteristics and great looks of Ford’s performance models in an exciting and affordable package with a broad range of petrol and diesel engines – and we will be introducing two further models later in the year,” de Waard said.

** The declared Fuel/Energy Consumptions, CO2 emissions and electric range are measured according to the technical requirements and specifications of the European Regulations (EC) 715/2007 and (EC) 692/2008 as last amended. Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are specified for a vehicle variant and not for a single car. The applied standard test procedure enables comparison between different vehicle types and different manufacturers. In addition to the fuel efficiency of a car, driving behaviour as well as other non-technical factors play a role in determining a car’s fuel/energy consumption, CO2 emissions and electric range. CO2 is the main greenhouse gas responsible for global warming.
