New Ford Fiesta ST five-door

Ford's all new, 178bhp Fiesta ST hot hatchback gains an extra set of doors for the LA motor show

Ford has revealed a five-door Fiesta ST concept which will be shown at the 2011 Los Angeles motor show. It follows on from the three-door that debuted at September’s Frankfurt show.

The hot Fiesta comes with 178bhp and 177lb ft of torque from its 1.6-litre Ecoboost petrol engine. This trumps the next most powerful variant, the Fiesta S1600, by 46bhp.

The new Fiesta ST can be distinguished by its large trapezoidal grille, wide side skirts, rear diffuser, twin chrome tailpipes and 17-inch alloy wheels.

Ford has also tuned the chassis. The ride height and suspension geometry has been fettled to ensure the Fiesta ST can take the fight to its accomplished rivals, namely the Mini Cooper S, Renaultsport Clio 200 and Vauxhall Corsa VXR Nurburgring.
