Ford Fiesta ST hits the China car market
Published on July 5, 2013 by Tycho de Feijter
The Ford Fiesta ST hot hatch has been launched on the China car market, priced at 185.900 yuan. The Fiesta ST is imported into China, unlike the regular Fiesta that is made locally by the Chang’an-Ford joint venture.
The Ford Fiesta ST is powered by a 1.6 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, mated to a six-speed manual. The engine poops out 182hp and 240nm, good for a 220km/h top speed and a 0-100 in 6.9. The Ford Fiesta ST is basically the only small hot hatch on the Chinese market, the French don’t sell anything spicy in China and the locally-made Volkswagen Polo GTI is a complete fake.
