Ford have Created a New ST-Line Family to Join their Growing Tribe
The Ford ST range is known as performance cars for those who want a sporty driving thrill on the road and they are where the new ST-Line has taken inspiration. The ST-Line family can be thought of as sitting halfway between the standard Ford model and the ST version. It provides sporty looks without such high performance meaning efficiency is kept high making a perfect everyday car.
Included in the new ST-Line family will be a Fiesta, Focus and Mondeo version each will benefit from the following enhanced interior and exterior features;
- 10 mm lower sports suspension
- Rock metallic alloy wheel design
- Machined alloy pedals
- Bespoke ST-Line badging
- Sports steering wheel
- Sports seats
- Lip spoiler
- Dark surrounds for front fog lights
- Honeycomb design front grille
Each model will have a choice of petrol or diesel engines. The Fiesta ST-Line will use the multi award winning 1.0 litre EcoBoost 5 speed petrol engine in a choice of 100, 125 or 140PS. The diesel option will be a 1.5 litre 94 bhp TDCi engine with CO2 emissions of 94 g/km. Prices start at £15,645. This saves a few thousand pounds compared to the full ST version which begins at £17,745. Many customers will be pleased to hear a 5 door option is available, as the ST range only offers 3 - no more fighting with seats for rear passengers! After the success of the Fiesta Red and Black editions they will also be on offer in the ST-Line range.
The Focus ST Line will be available as a 5 door hatchback or estate version. The petrol engines on offer will be a 1.0 litre 125 PS EcoBoost 6 speed engine or a 1.5 litre EcoBoost 150PS version.
For Diesel drivers there is the 1.5 litre TDCi 120PS 6 Speed engine available. All engines will be available in manual or automatic.
The final member of the ST-Line family is perfect for those who need a little more space. The Ford Mondeo will be available as a hatchback or estate with a 2.0 litre TDCi diesel with a 4WD version available as an optional extra.
Ford call the new ST-Line the “Ultimate expression of sports inspired design in a Ford”. They believe 10% of all Fiesta buyers will choose the ST-Line option and rumour has it the Kuga and S-Max are being lined up to join the new Ford family.
