The Blue Oval company has recently introduced in Great Britain the new ST Line versions for the Fiesta subcompact and Focus compact – bringing the design of the sporty versions to lesser variants.
If the standard Fiesta and Focus aren’t sporty enough for your tastes and you live in the UK there’s a new option from now on – the ST Line. Also, if you choose this one you won’t have to pay the premium that is needed to bring home the true ST models. The ST Line brings a host of visual tweaks – the front end has a honeycomb design for the trapezoidal grille, dark fog lamp surrounds, and a bumper lip spoiler if you opt for the Fiesta or a bumper insert for the Focus. Both models get treated to unique 17-inch metallic grey wheels and have a black beltline to compliment the ST Line badging and a roof-mounted spoiler. There’s also a rear diffuser element for both the Fiesta and Focus.
The cabin has been treated to sport seats with red stitching, perforated-leather wrapped steering wheel with grey stitching, and other highlights include an ST-style gear knob, scuff plates, and a dark woven headliner. The ST Line can be had when choosing the three- and five-door Fiesta, and you can select the turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder EcoBoost engine in 100-, 125-, and 140-hp to go along. These will be linked to a five-speed manual transmission and diesel fans will have to contend to the 95-hp 1.5-liter TDCI linked to a regular five-speeder as well. The Focus compact can be had in ST Line form when selecting the 125-hp version of the 1.0-liter engine or the bigger 1.5-liter EcoBoost sporting either 150 hp or 182 hp versions. The turbodiesel range is larger here – the 1.5-liter will be offered in the 120-hp variant and if that’s not enough there’s always the option of the 150-hp 2.0-liter TDCI. Going for the Focus means you’ll be able to select between six-speed automatic or manual gearboxes.
