Article by Christian A., on September 20, 2010

According to the latest reports, it appears that Ford is currently working on the Fiesta ST, a sporty version of the current hatchback.

For the moment there are no details available, but we do know that the new car is going to receive a new body kit consisting of a new front bumper, side sills, a new rear roof spoiler as well as a new rear bumper with integrated air diffuser and integrated exhaust system. The kit will be completed by a new set of alloy sports wheels.

The big surprise will be under the hood, where the car us rumored to receive a 1.6-liter Ecoboost engine delivering 180 and found in the Ford C-Max, but a 1.4-liter Ecoboost could also do the job.

For those who don’t know, the standard 2011 Fiesta is powered by a 1.6-liter Duratec engine with Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT) delivering 120 hp.

Mated to a standard five-speed manual transmission, the 2011 Fiesta is EPA rated at 28 mpg city and 37 mpg highway.

With the new six-speed PowerShift automatic transmission, the car delivers 40 mpg, with 5 mpg better than the Honda Fit and 4 mpg better than the Toyota Yaris. Pricing for the 2011 Fiesta starts at $13,995. [via InsideLine]
