European buyers are now able to order their 2016 Ford Fiesta ST with a pair of rear doors for the first time.
The five-door model will go on sale alongside the three-door model and promises to bring additional practicality while retaining the performance of the Fiesta ST.
The model’s 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol engine produces 134kW of power and 240Nm of torque, capable of sending the hot hatch from 0-100km/h in a claimed 6.9 seconds.
“Ford has now sold more than 38,000 Fiesta STs in Europe since we introduced the acclaimed hot hatchback in 2013, and growing numbers of customers have been asking us for a five-door version,” said Roelant de Waard, Vice President, Marketing, Sales & Service, Ford of Europe.
“The Fiesta ST with five doors makes an affordable Ford Performance driving experience accessible to an even greater number of customers.”
Priced from £19,495 in the UK on ST-2 and ST-3 series from October, Ford predicts the Fiesta ST five door will account for 25 per cent of Fiesta ST sales in Europe. Exclusive Fiesta ST styling includes 17-inch alloy wheels, unique grille, dynamic headlight design, and dramatic rear diffuser element for the exterior. Five available colour options include Race Red and Spirit Blue. Recaro seats and unique ST detailing feature for the interior.
