Hot new Ford Fiesta ST200 to cost from £22,745

Price confirmed for new Ford Fiesta ST200, which gets a power boost up to 197bhp plus fresh paint and alloy wheels

The new Ford Fiesta ST200, a more powerful version of the hot Fiesta ST supermini, is on the way, and will cost from £22,745 when it arrives in dealerships. It gets a power boost to 197bhp, as well as 290Nm of torque, for its 1.6-litre turbocharged engine, and only around 1,000 examples will be made.

The Fiesta ST200 will start to be built in June this year, with deliveries later in the summer. 

The standard Ford Fiesta ST has 180bhp and the ST200 version gets 10 per cent more power than that. The 0-62mph sprint takes 6.7 seconds, 0.2 seconds faster than the standard car. Plus, it will go on to a top speed of 143mph.

The ST200 was revealed at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show as the most powerful production Fiesta ever, and Ford has tweaked the gear ratios to improve in-gear performance as well – working with the car's overboost system that adds extra power and torque for up to 15 seconds. Like the normal ST, the ST200 also gets a torque vectoring system, 3-mode stability control, quicker steering and lowered suspension with special damper settings.

The ST200 comes in an exclusive 'storm grey' exterior paint colour, with black 17-inch alloy wheels, red brake calipers and extra trim for the interior. This includes special part-leather Recaro front seats with silver stitching, new seatbelt designs and illuminated scuff plates.

It faces stiff competition from Ford's tuning partner Mountune, however, which offers a £599 (plus fitting) upgrade for the standard Fiesta ST that boosts power to 212bhp and cuts the 0-62mph time to 6.4 seconds. It's available without voiding the car's manufacturer warranty, too.

There are no details on the ST200's economy figures, but there shouldn't be too much difference from the standard ST's 47.9mpg and 138g/km efficiency.
