Using the same chassis and drive train as the 3dr version, it will produce 180bhp from the turbocharged 1.6l engine. Fuel efficiency is set to dip very slightly due to the extra mass with up to 46.3mpg achieved on a combined cycle compared to 47.9 with the existing 3dr version.
Unique 17” alloy wheels, sporty front grille and bold rear diffuser that are trademark features of the Ford Fiesta ST remain, as does the three mode stability control and Recaro racing seats. The 5dr Ford Fiesta ST is likely to make up around 25% of all Ford Fiesta ST sales when introduced, compared to the existing Fiesta range where 5dr achieves 64% of sales.
Speaking about the launch of the 5dr edition of the Ford Fiesta ST, Roeland de Waard from Ford of Europe commented “Ford has now sold more than 38,000 Ford Fiesta STs in Europe since we introduced the acclaimed hot hatch in 2013”, adding “Growing numbers of customers have been asking us for a five door version, and the new Fiesta ST five-door makes an affordable Ford Performance driving experience accessibility to even greater number of customers.”
