Ford’s most powerful Fiesta hatchback yet, the ST200, has a 290Nm 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine which has been retuned from the standard motor. Transient overboost helps the engine deliver an additional 15PS/30Nm for 15 seconds. The in-gear acceleration is claimed to be better now with 0-100kmph coming up in 6.7 seconds. Ford claims a top speed of 230kmph from this hot hatch. A shorter final drive ratio also helps the Fiesta ST200 achieve this speed.
