Holy Smoke…The Sizzling Fiesta ST Is Here!!

Posted: May 28, 2013

A breathtaking 6,9 seconds to reach 100km/h, a cracking top speed of 220km/h and only 5,9l/100km at the pumps…the new Fiesta ST is here and it’s biting at the bit to hit the road. Says Eagle Ford Dealer Principal, Craig Gillesen,
“The Fiesta ST is the fastest ever production Fiesta and will certainly put a smile on every driver’s face. It delivers absolute precision and is an utter joy to drive. We haven’t had such a response to a vehicle in a long time.”

Fiesta ST Interior

 The ST is not short of safety features either.An Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD). EBD automatically varies the amount of force applied to each of the vehicle’s brakes based on road conditions, speed and loading to maximise stopping power while still maintaining control of the vehicle. Hill Launch Assist helps prevent the vehicle from rolling backwards after the driver has come to a stop on a slope or an incline. Safety is also enhanced with seven airbags (dual front, side, curtain airbags and driver knee airbag), earning the Fiesta a five-star Euro-NCAP safety rating.The Fiesta ST is available with a fully comprehensive four-year / 120 000km warranty and four-year / 60 000km service plan. Service intervals are staggered at 20 000km. Customers will also benefit from three years of roadside assistance and a five-year corrosion warranty, both of which are available with unlimited mileage.
