Article by Christian A., on October 17, 2018

Ford is giving potential Fiesta customers more reasons to purchase its world-renowned subcompact. Two of these are the introductions of new sporty model based from the ST-Line trim of the Ford Fiesta. New customers can now indulge with the new Ford Fiesta ST-Line Red Edition and the Fiesta ST-Line Black Edition. Ford is now selling the Ford Fiesta ST-Line Red Edition and Fiesta ST-Line Black Edition models in selected markets in Europe.

According to the carmaker, the ST-Line trim accounts for around 20 percent of total Fiesta sales this year. Perhaps the satisfying demand for the ST-Line – which endows the Fiesta a sportier and more dynamic appearance – has led Ford to create two new special editions based on this trim. These new editions – the new Ford Fiesta ST-Line Red Edition and the Fiesta ST-Line Black Edition feature distinctive exterior and interior elements that make them stand out from the rest.

Making full use of Ford Performance-inspired styling, these new Ford Fiesta ST-Line edition models are available in three- and five-door body styles. Both the new Ford Fiesta ST-Line Red Edition and the Fiesta ST-Line Black Edition are served by Ford’s 1.0-liter EcoBoost petrol engine that deliver 140 PS of max output, as complemented by sports suspension. This engine is mated to a low-friction six-speed manual gearbox.

As it name indicates, the new Ford Fiesta ST-Line Red Edition comes wrapped in a Race Red exterior with matte black stripes edged in high-gloss black. The stripes extend from the roof, through the bonnet then to the lower front spoiler lip. On the other hand, the Fiesta ST-Line Black Edition is finished a Panther Black exterior paint, as matched by matte black stripes with high-gloss red edges.

Both the new Ford Fiesta ST-Line Red Edition and the Fiesta ST-Line Black Edition are marked on the rear by a massive body-colored spoiler. They both don black mirror caps that are bisected by a horizontal red stripe. In addition, the both Fiesta ST-Line editions ride on distinctive Panther Black 17-inch alloy wheels with red rims.

The exterior theme of these Ford Fiesta ST-Line editions continues inside. Red accents are found on the partial leather sports seats, central air-vent register surround, passenger-side deco-spear as well as door pulls. The flat-bottomed leather steering wheel, gear lever gaiter, handbrake lever and gaiter also feature red-stitching, which is also found on the floor mats and door interiors.

Cabin techs include the available SYNC 3 connectivity and entertainment system with an 8-inch color touchscreen, an available 675-watt B&O Sound System with a 360-degree premium audio experience. Standard driving assistance systems include Lane-Keeping Aid, Speed Limiter and Hill Start Assist. Optional technologies include Adaptive Cruise Control and Blind Spot Information System as well as Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection and Traffic Sign Recognition.

As standard, both the new Ford Fiesta ST-Line Red Edition and the Fiesta ST-Line Black Edition are provided with halogen projector headlights with auto lighting, LED daytime running lights as well as LED rear lights.

New Ford Fiesta ST-Line Red and Black Editions help customers stand out from the crowd

Ford has expanded the versatile all-new Fiesta line-up with two bold new colour-contrast models: the new Fiesta ST-Line Red Edition and Black Edition.

Based on the sporty Fiesta ST-Line variant that has accounted for almost one in five Fiesta sales in 2018 to-date, the new Fiesta ST-Line Red Edition and Black Edition models feature unique, distinctive exterior and interior details that help drivers stand out from the crowd and further emphasise the model’s dynamic, Ford Performance-inspired styling.

Available in three- and five-door body styles, the Fiesta ST-Line Red Edition and Black Edition are powered by Ford’s 140 PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, and feature sports suspension for a responsive, engaging and fun-to-drive experience.

“The head-turning style of our new Fiesta ST-Line Red Edition and Black Edition models emphasises Fiesta’s dynamic character and lets the driver’s personality shine through,” said Amko Leenarts, director, Design, Ford of Europe. “High-series vehicles including ST-Line models made up 70 per cent of our passenger car sales in Europe in August – and we’re finding more than ever that customers want to make a statement with the cars that they drive.”

Ford introduced the ST-Line model range in 2016, designed for customers who aspire to the sporty image of Ford Performance models – but do not require the full performance delivered by Ford Performance optimised engines and chassis.

Two charismatic options

The new Fiesta ST-Line Red Edition features a Race Red exterior enhanced with matte black stripes that are edged in high-gloss black, and extend from the roof, though the bonnet to the lower front spoiler lip. The Fiesta ST-Line Black Edition features a Panther Black exterior, and matte black stripes highlighted with high-gloss red edges.

Both eye-catching models feature an over-sized, body-colour rear spoiler, distinctive Panther Black 17-inch alloy wheels with red rims, and black mirror caps bisected by a horizontal red stripe.

The interior continues the contrast colour theme. Red accents feature for the partial leather sports seats, door pulls, central air-vent register surround and passenger-side deco-spear. Red-stitching enhances the flat-bottomed leather steering wheel, gear lever gaiter, handbrake lever and gaiter, floor mats and door interiors.

Ford’s available SYNC 3 connectivity and entertainment system is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™, and when specified enables Fiesta ST-Line Red Edition and Black Edition drivers to control audio, navigation and connected smartphones using voice commands and an 8-inch colour touchscreen.

SYNC 3 also is compatible with high-resolution audio file formats, and an available 675-watt B&O Sound System delivers a 360-degree premium audio experience using ten speakers, including a boot-mounted subwoofer and a central mid-range speaker on top of the instrument panel.

Comfort, convenience and safety features delivered as standard include halogen projector headlights with auto lighting, LED daytime running lights, and LED rear lights; front fog lights incorporating static cornering lights; Lane-Keeping Aid; Speed Limiter and Hill Start Assist.

Further available advanced driver assistance technologies include Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Traffic Sign Recognition, Adaptive Cruise Control and Blind Spot Information System.

Ford’s powerful and fuel-efficient multi-award-winning 140 PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine and low-friction six-speed manual gearbox combination delivers from 4.9 l/100 km fuel efficiency and from 112 g/km CO2 emissions.

The new Ford Fiesta ST-Line Red Edition and Black Edition models are available to order in selected European markets now.

Ford also offers individualisation options including contrasting roof and door mirror caps for the all-new Fiesta line-up that includes the stylish Fiesta Titanium, upscale Fiesta Vignale, the Fiesta Active SUV-inspired crossover, and the Ford Performance-developed all-new Fiesta ST.
