Fiesta ST caught testing in china (pics)

Most sources say the engine THERE will have 180 horses as well. I truly hope the 160 hp report for the US was false

Fogs and a BIG grill, at least from this angle.


Really enjoying the LED daytime running lights...will this feature make it to the US? WHO KNOWS. Wonder if it'd be possible to import them later....


^disc brakes all around, and the big spoiler is still there! liking

Looks great!

Why oh why won't Ford bless the US with the 3-door fiestas and foci tho! :'(

Oh we'll, it's going to be exciting to see the fiesta ST and how it stacks up against other small hot hatches!

excellent power though.

I wouldn't it have the LEDs? The Focus ST has similar LEDs on the ST3 headlights. Also I highly doubt it will be 160hp here, as that motor is already here in other non performance vehicles making 178hp.

well, no other B segment car HAS daytime LEDs, so ford will have to decide whether to be a class leader here, or if the LEDs are expendable.

I just hope the wiring harnesses in the US model are the same... just in case we need to import non-us (aka THE REST OF THE WORLD'S) headlights

Well that looks like it doesn't have projectors. Could be the difference between ST1 and ST3 in the Focus here? Just guessing.

indeed. hate to see top levels of the FIesta ST costing more than $23,000 though... ford should make the most-optioned unit just below Focus ST


EDIT- the most expensive Fiesta I could make was ~$21,000
the msot expensive Focus ST I could make wa around $32 grand

The Fiesta has DRL LEDs now.... why wouldn't they offer them on the next model?

Don't be dumb guys. It's Friday. This is not the time to be dumb.


I'm surprised they are testing in China though. I wonder what geographical features China has that would require testing there?
