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

*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.
From 1 September 2017, certain new vehicles will be type-approved using the World Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) according (EU) 2017/1151 as last amended, which is a new, more realistic test procedure for measuring fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. From 1 September 2018 the WLTP will fully replace the New European Drive Cycle (NEDC), which is the current test procedure. During NEDC Phase-out, WLTP fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are being correlated back to NEDC. There will be some variance to the previous fuel economy and emissions as some elements of the tests have altered i.e., the same car might have different fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
