Now, it is clear that one of the fewer cylinders may be the worse for the new Fiesta ST.
The strongest version of the previous generation Ford Fiesta was the ST200, which has a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder turbo petrol engine under its bonnet. This resource delivers a peak of 200 horsepower at 6000 rpm, and 290 Nm maximum torque at 2500 rpm.
In the recent Fiesta ST, which has been thoroughly tested by us, there is one less, that is, only 3 cylinders and a displacement of 1.5 liters. The turbocharged small petrol engine delivers a maximum of 200 horsepower at 6,000 rpm, and 290 Nm of torque at 1700 rpm.
In the following video, they testify against each other in the old and new techniques, standing and rolling events. First, the new ST of 1230 kilograms on paper must fall by 0.2 seconds in the 0-100 acceleration to the 6.7 seconds of prediction.
