The latest hot hatch Tech secrets - Ford's All-new Fiesta ST


Today +Ford Europe released more details about the tech that makes their new Fiesta ST hot hatch even more fun to drive.

Sharper changes in direction are aided by new springs developed from scratch, and the Fiesta ST sprints out of corners faster than ever, thanks to a clever limited-slip differential that sends the engine’s power to the wheel with most grip. 



We told you before about the supercar-inspired Drive Modes that can change the Fiesta ST’s character from sensible school-run hatchback to racer at the press of a button. Now Ford is revealing their Launch Control tech, that helps track-driving fans get perfect starts off the line.



And Ford's new 200 PS 1.5-litre EcoBoost engine means you’ll hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 6.5 seconds.








World Rally Championship driver Louise Cook took the All-new Fiesta ST for a spin around Ford's Lommel Proving Ground.
