Whereas European clients can look ahead to many extra years of latest Ford Fiestas, the identical can’t be stated of American consumers. Ford’s smallest home passenger car ceases manufacturing subsequent summer time, however there’s nonetheless time to have enjoyable earlier than our future provides method to sport crossovers.
For 2019, the scrappy Fiesta ST scorching hatch continues unaltered, whereas clients achieve a new Fiesta trim providing loads of flash and doubtless no additional sprint.
In accordance to order guides seen by CarsDirect (h/t to CNET), the Fiesta enters its last mannequin yr with a price lower of greater than $three,600 for the entry-degree mannequin. The 1.6-liter 4-cylinder carries over, boasting ó if that’s a correct phrase ó one hundred twenty horsepower and 112 lb-ft of torque.
A 2018 Fiesta S sedan carries a $14,205 sticker, plus a $875 vacation spot cost. This mannequin carries a standard 5-velocity guide. The hatch variant tacks on a few hundred bucks. Sure, it seems like there’s a deal to be had on basic Ford transportation come 2019.
The ST is the place the actual enjoyable’s at, although. With the identical 197 hp and 202 lb-ft on faucet from its 1.6-liter EcoBoost motor, the highest-rung 2019 Fiesta provides simply $fifty five to its sticker for its ultimate mannequin yr. That brings its sans-vacation spot MSRP to $21,340. In fact, if additional energy does nothing for you, or in case your pockets can’t deal with the added bucks, the order guides present an ST Line Fiesta for 2019.
The ST Line arms over some the looks goodies however retains the powertrain inventory. Or at the very least that’s what the trim’s 1.6-liter engine choice suggests, although the “TBD” energy determine ought to have Ford followers holding out hope for a smidgen of added thrust. In contrast to the ST, the ST Line ditches a six-velocity guide for a 5-velocity shifter or non-compulsory six-velocity PowerShift automated (a $1,095 choice). We extremely recommend you don’t choose the latter tranny.
What does the lesser of the STs value? $18,500 after vacation spot. For that price, you’ll achieve the ST’s fancy entrance fascia, rear spoiler, and twin chrome ideas poking from beneath the rear bumper. Wheel size sheds an inch of diameter in contrast to the ST, with the ten-spoke black-painted hoops shod with P195/50R16 tires.
When you can overlook concerning the ST’s sport suspension on this lesser trim, in addition to a energy driver’s seat, there might be “sport embossed bolsters” to nestle your bottom into. There’s additionally a restricted colour palette that doesn’t get as wild because the ST’s.
If any of this appeals to you, you’ll get your probability to spring for the fake ST or its genuine sibling later this yr. It’ll be your final probability to make a FiST.
