Red hot Ford Fiesta ST200 comes to South Africa

19.05.2017

Although on sale in Europe since early 2016 and originally not earmarked for local introduction, Ford Motor Company South Africa has now released pricing details of the even hotter Fiesta ST200.

Limited to 160 units only, the ST200 differs visually from the regular ST by virtue of its matt black five-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels, red brake callipers, full LED rear lights, ST200 badging and a model specific Strom Grey metallic paint finish. Interior revisions are more subtle though with heated partial leather Recaro sport seats, illuminated scuff plates and dual-tone seatbelts. As for added standard spec, the ST200 gets a reverse camera as standard.

The biggest change comes underneath the bonnet where the 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine now produces 149 kW and 290 Nm of torque as opposed the normal ST's 134 kW / 240 Nm, although an overboost function allows for an additional 11 kW and 30 Nm hike for 20 seconds.

Mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, Ford claims the ST200 will dispatch the 0-100 km/h mark in 6.5 seconds, and reach an electronically limited top speed of 230 km/h.

A four year / 120 000 km warranty and four year / 60 000 km service plan is included in the ST200's R339 900 sticker price.
