Ford expects demand for its Fiesta ST-Line supermini warm hatch to be strong. Jonathan Crouch looks at what's on offer.

Ten Second Review

Not everyone needs an ultimately powerful little hot hatch. High insurance premiums and even higher asking prices can often put paid to shopping rocket dreams. Which is why some makers will sell you a supermini with all the look and feel of a real GTi but none of the drawbacks. Here's Ford's solution, the Fiesta ST-Line.

Background

We've had plenty of really great sporting Ford Fiestas. In fact, the Blue Oval brand's hot hatch legacy around this model goes all the way back to the XR2 of 1981, with a history subsequently embellished by the more powerful RS1800 and RS Turbo models that followed it. Best of all was the hot hatch 1.6-litre Fiesta ST launched in 2013. Unfortunately, in current 1.5-litre EcoBoost form, it costs the best part of £20,000. So what if you could have a sporty Fiesta that looks just the same for not much more than around £16,000? That sounds more like it. It's the recipe delivered by the Fiesta ST-Line. Of course, going the ST-Line route isn't going to get you the kind of power you'd enjoy n a fully fledged ST. If that's not an issue, then potentially, there's plenty to like here.

Driving Experience

Fiesta ST-Line buyers get a choice of four engines. Three of them are variants of the brand's three cylinder 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol turbo unit, developing either 100, 125 or 140PS. If you really must, there's also a 120PS 1.5-litre TDCi diesel variant too. We'd go for the 100PS petrol variant. Choose one of the other derivatives and you're getting to the point where you might as well have shaken the piggy bank a little further and gone for a fully-fledged ST model. The 1.0-litre variant in contrast seems to give you everything you need without too much of what you don't. Rest to 62mph in the 100PS model takes 10.5s en route to 113mph and working the little powerplant hard delivers a pleasant, buzzy thrum. The 140PS version gets to 62mph in 9.0s on the way to 125mph. Through the bends, the handling should be sharp, thanks to a 10mm lowered chassis and the well-weighted steering and short, crisp gearshift feel we've experienced in other Fiestas. The fact that the suspension is a touch softer than that of the full-fat ST may actually even be of benefit on bumpy roads, where this ST-Line variant is unlikely to crash through tarmac scars quite as much.

Design and Build

At first glance, this ST-Line Fiesta looks just like the potent top ST model - at least in three-door form anyway. You can't get an ST with five doors but that bodystyle is available to ST-Line customers, another potential buying incentive. ST-Line styling specifics include a unique 'ST-Line' upper grille, 'ST-Line' wing badges, a full bodystyling kit, 'Rock Metallic' 17-inch 5x2-spoke alloy wheels and a large body-coloured rear spoiler. Inside, there's sports seats, sports pedals and a flat-bottomed 'ST-Line' steering wheel. Otherwise, it's the usual Fiesta recipe. Up front, there are flush, seamless surfaces, soft-touch plastic coatings and neat splashes of chrome, plus it all seems to have been very well screwed together by the factory in Cologne. Other than that, the first thing you'll probably notice is the infotainment system that now sprouts in free-standing form from the top of the centre console. Rear seat space in the three-door version is better than the claustrophobically rising beltline might lead you to expect. Once you're in the back, the Fiesta surprises with headroom manageable even for a six-footer - though his or her legs will be crushed pretty snugly against the seat in front. There's also a 292-litre boot.

Market and Model

Fiesta ST-Line prices start at just over £16,000 for the 1.0-litre 100PS model, so there's quite a saving over the 1.5-litre full-fat ST hot hatch. Add in the other savings you'll make when it comes to things like running costs and insurance and the ST-Line case starts to add up. Add on around £500 more if you want the pokier 125PS model - and around £500 more if you want the top 140PS variant - though by that time, you'll be needing to find over £17,500 for the five-door model, which isn't really too far off what you'd pay for that fully-fledged ST. The 120PS diesel costs from just under £18,000. Whichever variant you choose, you'll need a premium of around £600 to progress from the three-door to the five-door bodystyle. As for ST-Line equipment, well in addition to the styling add-ons we've mentioned elsewhere, buyers can expect to find features like LED daytime running lights, black headlining, a perimeter alarm, keyless start, manual air conditioning and a 'SYNC 3 infotainment system with a 6.5-inch touchscreen with Emergency Assistance, 'Apple CarPlay' and 'Android Auto' smartphone mirroring functionality and a six-speaker DAB audio system. If you want more, then plusher 'ST-Line X' models ad in a larger 8-inch SYNC touchscreen with navigation, rear privacy glass, LED rear lights, climate control, auto headlamps and wipers and part-leather trim for the seats.

Cost of Ownership

The whole point of choosing an ST-Line Fiesta rather than a sportier ST model is to reduce your costs. Which is broadly what's delivered here. Go for the fastest ST-Line variant, the 1.0-litre EcoBoost 140PS derivative featuring Start and Stop, and the figures are 62.8mpg and 102g/km. The 100 and 125PS versions improve that showing further - to 65.7mpg and 98g/km. And in the 1.5 TDCi diesel variant, you can potentially manage up to 88.3mpg and 89g/km. What else? Well we'll tell you about servicing, which on all engines is required every two years or 18,000 miles - whichever comes first. Two pre-paid servicing plans are available; one that costs £340 and covers you for two years and two services; and another that costs £550, is transferrable to future owners and covers three years and three services. That only leaves depreciation. If you're a prospective customer, then you'll be glad to hear that Fiesta residual values are on the up as both new and used markets respond well to the increase in quality of the latest generation car. Expect to get around 50% of your initial purchase price back after three years - which is basically unheard of for a Fiesta.

Summary

Most commentators agree that the Fiesta ST is the hot hatch to have in the junior shopping rocket segment. If you've decided that too, but concluded that the costs involved are just that little bit beyond you, then these ST-Line models offer a very tempting alternative. Yes, there's less power, but the handling promises to be very nearly as good - and possibly in some circumstances even better - than Ford's established class leader. Plus there's the advantage of being able to order the more practical five-door bodystyle. Go on. You know you want to.

FIESTA GETS A BOOST (new2) 07/07/2017

The seventh generation Ford Fiesta is at its most appealing in three cylinder 1.0 EcoBoost petrol form. Jonathan Crouch takes a look.

Ten Second Review

Ford's latest Fiesta is a useful development over what went before. What hasn't changed is the 1.0-litre EcoBoost turbo petrol unit that most buyers will probably want. That's a good thing.

Background

Ford knows what it's doing when it comes to developing small cars for a demanding clientele and the seventh generation Fiesta is no exception. This car is effectively a far-reaching re-development of the previous sixth generation design and, as with that model, one of the strongest weapons this one has is its 1.0-litre three cylinder EcoBoost petrol engine. Since we first saw this unit back in 2012, virtually every other rival has developed its own downsized three cylinder 1.0 or 1.2-litre petrol turbo engine to try and compete. This Ford powerplant still feels a cut above most of them though.

Driving Experience

Certain realities exist in the supermini market. The additional cost of diesel engines rarely makes them big sellers, so this is where the state of the art in petrol engines is often played out. For some years now, Ford's 1.0-litre Ecoboost three-cylinder unit has been in the box seat in this regard. It's also available in a top 140PS variant as well as the usual 100 and 125PS guises. And can be had with mHEV mild hybrid tech. Either way, it's pretty vivid. In 100PS form, 62mph from rest takes 10.5s en route to 113mph. In the 125PS model, those figures improve to 9.9s and 121mph, while with the 140PS derivative, you're looking at 9s and 125mph. The Fiesta has long been one of the very best superminis to drive. This new generation model is 15% stiffer than before and both front and rear track measurements are wider. The engineers tell us that the chassis now offers 10% more cornering grip, supported by Electronic Torque Vectoring Control, which enhances the driving experience by applying a small amount of braking to inside wheels to assist traction and stability when cornering. Braking distances at 62mph are reduced by more than 8%. There are freshly developed five and six-speed manual gearboxes. And rear disc brakes feature on models with engines developing more than 100PS.

Design and Build

If you go by the maxim that if something looks right, it is right, then you'll probably like the look of this seventh generation Fiesta. As before, it's offered in both three and five-door bodystyles and both are tidy pieces of styling with evolutionary styling and a bolder, wider front grille. The side profile is more settled and less wedge-shaped, combining with 71mm of additional body length and 12mm of additional width to give what Ford hopes is a longer and more premium appearance. Inside, it's completely different from what went before. Gone is the previous button-heavy fascia with its cheap plastics. In fact, the number of buttons on the centre console has been reduced by almost half, with many connectivity and entertainment controls relocated to a freshly developed 'SYNC3' 8-inch touchscreen. A semi-translucent piano black insert stretches all the way from the instrument binnacle to the centre console, giving the cabin a touch of class. Rear seat passengers benefit from 16mm more knee room, supported by new slim-back seats that are softer, and offer greater side-to-side support. This Fiesta's tailgate is wider for easier access to the boot, and improved storage for personal belongings is delivered with a 20% larger glovebox and a 1-litre media bin in the centre console.

Market and Model

You'll need to be budgeting the best part of £17,000 for a Fiesta with the 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine we've been looking at here - list price-wise anyway. As usual, there's a £650 premium to pay if you want the extra flexibility of five doors. This engine is offered right across the range, starting with the base 'Trend' level of trim and at this point in the line-up, this powerplant only comes in its base 100PS form. If you can stretch to plusher 'Titanium' spec, then your dealer will offer you the option of a 125PS version of this unit. And this unit comes in a further 140PS state of tune if you can go further and get one of the sporty 'ST-Line' models. There's also a Fiesta 'Active' variant that offers SUV styling cues that target the growing Crossover market. Whatever your choice, you'll be offered some up-scale equipment options, examples including an openable panoramic glass roof. There's sophisticated safety too, including a Pedestrian Detection system that can even prevent collisions at night. And 'Active Park Assist' with brake interventions to prevent low-speed collisions when parking hands-free. As for standard equipment, even base models get features like air conditioning, Bluetooth, an 'Emergency Assistance' system and a 6-speaker stereo.

Cost of Ownership

The Fiesta has always been a bit of a star where running costs are concerned. When the engines used to be a bit off the pace, the asking prices were low. Now that the Fiesta has some of the most fuel efficient engines in the sector, the list prices of the cars are a little higher - but to compensate, residual values have improved a little in turn. There's an mHEV version of this 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine available but even in its conventional form, this unit returns some excellent figures with both 100 and 125PS variants returning a stellar 65.7mpg on the combined cycle and registering either 97 or 98g/km. With the 140PS model, the figures are 62.8mpg and 102g/km. Insurance premiums and maintenance costs have been kept low by an intelligent approach to manufacturing. Bake-hardened steel on the front wings, for example, offers better resistance to low speed bumps and scrapes. Headlamps and tail lamps are positioned high, away from potential impacts, while specially shaped 'crash cans' are designed as sacrificial parts, collapsing predictably in an impact to prevent more extensive damage and higher repair bills.

Summary

The Ford Fiesta has always been a vehicle that the British public has warmed to and it makes most sense in this 1.0 EcoBoost guise. There's an unpretentious quality to this seventh generation model and a focus on providing the things that really matter to small car buyers - fun handling, an affordable asking price, low running costs and decent accommodation and space. With this MK7 design, to that little list, you can add strong safety provision and sophisticated media connectivity as well. The latest car has a polish and self belief that we've never seen from the Fiesta before. In short, this blue collar car has made good. Especially with three cylinder EcoBoost power.

MORE REASONS TO JOIN THE FIESTA (used) 16/04/2021

By Jonathan Crouch

Introduction

This seventh generation Fiesta grew up a bit but it didn't lose the youthful, eager feel that endeared previous generation models to so many supermini buyers. Beneath the smarter styling lies some clever user-friendly technology - and cabin quality that'll make down-sizing into one of these less of a chore. This is how you right a best seller. Let's check out early MK7 models as a used proposition.

History

What's been the world's most significant car in the last half a century? This is our nomination, Ford's Fiesta, which in 2017 was rejuvenated in MK7 model guise for a fresh generation of buyers. The figures speak for themselves. This supermini was first launched back in 1976 and by 2017, over 17 million models had been sold, 4.5 million of them in the UK. Which is why, at the time of this MK7 model's launch, to keep up with demand, a Fiesta was rolling off the Cologne production line every 68 seconds. In this country, we bought more than a million examples of the previous MK6 model, which was launched in 2008, and by 2017, had been our market's best selling car for the last eight years. Forget 'Mondeo man'; we are, in short, a nation of 'Fiesta folk'. It's an astonishing success story, particularly given that prior to this seventh generation model's introduction, the only area in which Fiesta models had really excelled was in driving dynamics - usually one of the less important attributes for supermini buyers. You'd certainly have expected that if Ford were going to continue this sales dominance, at least in our market, greater efforts would be needed. Given that, it was somewhat surprising in 2017 to be presented with a seventh generation model that looked so similar to its predecessor. Don't be fooled. The Blue Oval brand changed virtually everything here - and we mean almost everything. Out of around 2,500 parts that are needed to create a Fiesta, only about 200 were carried over. The bodywork was completely new; so was the suspension - and as a result, the driving dynamics are even better than before. There was also a brand new interior fashioned with much higher quality. And buyers got a fresh era of media connectivity and camera-driven safety technology. There was also a much wider choice of derivatives than before, with hot hatches, a super-luxury 'Vignale' version and even a 'Fiesta Active' Crossover model in the mix. This was, in short, on paper at least, a thoroughly well thought out piece of supermini development. The MK7 Fiesta sold in this Form until 2020, when the range was updated with mild hybrid power. But it's the earlier 2017-2020-era models we look at here.

What You Get

Everything changed here - but almost nothing was different. If you know anything about this car, then come face to face with it, that might be your first perspective on this seventh generation Fiesta's design - it was certainly ours. Ford certainly could have done something radically new; indeed, in many ways, they did. Dimensionally, after all, this was actually quite a fundamentally altered product, 70mm longer, 13mm wider and 20mm lower than the previous MK6 model, plus virtually every constituent part of the car was different. You can see though, why the brand wanted the look and feel of this supermini to stay much the same. The company's European Design Director Joel Piaskowski said he wanted to evolve the styling in a way that would make it more contemporary without losing the essential 'Fiesta-ness' that customers love. That's what was delivered. Cabin quality was what let down the previous model, with its cheap finishes and confusing button clutter. In contrast, with this MK7 model, there are flush, seamless surfaces, soft-touch plastic coatings and neat splashes of chrome, plus it was all very well screwed together by the factory in Cologne. Other than that, the first thing you'll probably notice is the infotainment system that sprouts in free-standing form from the top of the centre console. The screen options vary depending on the model or options you choose - there are 4.2, 6.5 or, as in the case of top variants, 8.0-inch sizes, all featuring pin-sharp graphics, logical menus and fast processor speeds. And in the rear? Well, if you come to this car fresh from ownership of the previous generation model, then it's likely that you'll view Ford's greater efforts in this part of the cabin in a positive light. There is, after all, 16mm more knee room than there was before, plus the seats are softer and offer greater side-to-side support. Should you be trying a Fiesta having sampled a more spacious supermini rival though - and there are plenty - you'll probably be a little less inclined to be quite so generous. Finally, the boot. That extra body length allowed the cargo area to be 17-litres larger than it was before, with this MK7 model rated at 292-litres for both bodyshapes. That figure is only average by class standards, but if you're able to flatten the 60:40 split-folding rear backrest, you'll free up one of the better total capacity figures in the class - 1,093-litres.

What You Pay

We'll base pricing on the 5-door body style that most customers choose. The 3-door body shape (only available with base trim or with the top ST model) saves you about £450. Pricing starts with the normally aspirated 1.1-litre Ti-VCT petrol engine, which, with a base 'Style''-spec model, will cost you from around £7,200 for an early .17-plate MK7 model, with values rising to around £8,800 for an '18-platye car, Add around £700 more for mid-range 'Zetec'' trim. You'll probably prefer a model with the 1.0-litre EcoBoost turbo petrol engine; prices start from around £8,600, which gets you a '17-plate 'Zetec'-spec model, prices then rising to around £10,100 for an '18-plate model. Add another £800 for mid-range 'Titanium' trim. The 1.5 TDCi diesel prices from around £8,000 in 90PS form, with base 'Style' trim on a '17-plate, with values rising to around £9,150 for a later '19-plate car. The Fiesta ST hot hatch prices from around £13,500 on a '17-plate with base 'ST-2' trim, with values rising to around £19,200 for a later '20-plate car; add around £900 for plusher 'ST-3' trim.

What to Look For

As usual with a supermini, check the interior for child damage. And with top-spec versions, check the alloy wheels for scratches. Look for any dents, dings and scratches to the panelwork. And ensure that the clutch engages smoothly and that the car goes into gear easily. The 1.5-litre diesel engine is fitted with a diesel particulate filter, but this may be clogged up if the previous owner hasn't completed too many highway journeys. There's one key product recall you need to know about. Some Fiestas built from 15 May 2019 to 17 June 2019 were fitted with steering columns that weren't up to specification. Cars affected had to have the whole column replaced to prevent potential future issues.

Replacement Parts

(approx based on a 2018 1.0 EcoBoost 100PS - Ex Vat) An oil filter is in the £7-£9 bracket. An air filter costs around £11. A pollen filter costs around £9-£23. A rear outer lamp costs around £60. A wiper blade is in the £3-£14 bracket. A rear brake discs cost in the £15 bracket. A front brake pad is in the £16-£40 brackets; rears are in the £16-£27 bracket. A radiator is around £180.

On the Road

Variations on the Fiesta theme may come and go, but before driving any version of Ford's definitive supermini, there's one thing you almost always tend to know for certain: that it'll be a great steer. This time round, the Blue Oval brand has sought to retain that traditional Fiesta attribute, yet at the same time, introduce a standard of ride quality closer to that delivered by arch-rivals like Volkswagen's Polo. The feel you'll get from this Fiesta depends quite a lot on the variant of it you choose. That's because two quite different chassis configurations have been used across the range, with a firmer set-up used for the various sporty 'ST' models and a softer one featuring elsewhere in the range on the cars the majority of customers will end up with. On such mainstream versions, this car isn't quite the sharp, eager thing we remembered from before, but it can still offer a level of handling joie de vivre that's beyond anything its competitors can manage. That's thanks to improved steering, a lightweight body that's usefully stiffer in this MK7 model and an effective torque vectoring system that helps you get the grip down in the corners. The effect of all of this is dialled up to a useful degree if you opt for one of the sportier 'ST-Line' models, Fiesta variants that are more stiffly-sprung, yet which still enjoy most of the benefits of the suppler all-new suspension set-up that's responsible for a vast improvement in ride quality. Engine-wise, all the volume petrol units are three cylinder in configuration, the line-up propped up by a 1.1-litre Ti-VCT powerplant offered with either 70 or 85PS. Most customers stretch to the 1.0T turbocharged EcoBoost engine, available in either 100, 125 or 140PS guises. We'd recommend the volume 100PS derivative, which can be had with an auto gearbox option and in manual form, is capable of 65.7mpg on the combined cycle and 97g/km of CO2 (both NEDC figures). Elsewhere in the line-up, 1.5-litre engines dominate. There's a 200PS petrol unit in the ST hot hatch. And diesel buyers get 85PS and 120PS 1.5 TDCi options that focus on frugality and will be of particular interest to customers of the 'Active' Crossover derivative that widened the appeal of the range.

Overall

The Ford Fiesta has always been a vehicle the British public has warmed to, but the truth is that before this seventh generation model arrived, supermini buyers chose this car either because it was great to drive or because they'd been offered a deal too good to turn down: there wasn't really another reason to buy one. This model changed all that, smarter to look at, smarter to sit in and smarter to operate. A smarter choice all round then? Many will think so. This may not be the largest car in the supermini sector but in just about every other respect, it's an ultra-competitive proposition. There's an unpretentious quality to it and a focus on providing the things that really matter to small car buyers - the fun handling and affordable asking price Ford has long delivered to them in this segment, but also the low running costs, strong safety provision and low emissions that are equally important in today's market. And it's all been done with a polish and self belief that we've never seen from a Fiesta before. In short, this is, more than ever, a small car that supermini buyers simply can't ignore.
