Here's what we learned riding in the new Ford Fiesta ST

Ford has detailed its Europe-bound Fiesta ST that replaces the ageing current model with new technology and a bump in performance.

For example, the 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint takes 6.5 seconds (not 6.7 seconds) - good news indeed.

Ford Performance also listened to feedback and tinkered with the Recaro driver's seat to offer better adjustment before and given the pew more tilt and seat-back movement.

Available with either three or five-doors the hatch is even hotter than before and completes the 0-100km/h dash in 6.5 seconds - 0.5sec faster - on to a top speed of 231km/h.

The supermini, which is powered by a 200PS 1.5-litre EcoBoost engine, uses technology such as a new combination of port fuel injection and direct fuel injection which works alongside cylinder deactivation technology to improve efficiency.

Prices and an on-sale date are yet to be confirmed.

Ford has shed more light on the new Fiesta ST hot hatch ahead of its European launch.

Fortunately, Ford claims it will be "the most responsive, engaging and fun-to-drive Fiesta ST" ever, thanks to newly-announced technologies including an optional mechanical limited-slip differential (LSD), force vectoring springs, and optional Launch Control.

The new Fiesta ST comes with selectable driving modes, configuring the engine, steering and stability controls to Normal, Sport and Track settings.

Meantime, Ford's bigger, roomier, safer and higher-tech Mk7 Fiesta went on sale in Europe a year ago with new driver-assist and connectivity technologies, but won't be sold in Australia because it will only be made in Germany for now, making mainstream variants too expensive. The system is said to help optimize front-end traction for enhanced cornering ability, delivering more grip on the exit of corners to the wheel with more grip. The engine is paired with a new active exhaust as well.

According to the American auto giant, the new ST will deliver the "most responsive, engaging and fun-to-drive Fiesta ST experience ever".

Ford say that will give you sharper turn-in, works with the normal dampers, doesn't compromise comfort or ride quality and saves weight. Finally, the Fiesta ST gets an optional launch control system for the first time that Ford says it is developed for use on track only.

Outside, the ST receives an exclusive bodykit over 17 or 18-inch alloys and is available in either white, grey, silver, blue, red or black paint.
