Ford Fiesta S1600 gives us hopes of sporty Fiesta on the stateside

Ford Fiesta S1600

Take a look at this new hot-hatch Fiesta that isn’t a Ford ST. It’s actually known as the Ford Fiesta S1600 and is essentially a standard 118-hp Zetec S with an enhanced bodykit and some racy touches on the inside and it’s only available in the UK.

“Based on the popular Fiesta Zetec-S – with a generous standard specification that includes alloy pedals and Quickclear windscreen – the sporty Fiesta S1600 interior adds heated, stitched leather sports seats with standard side-airbags, leather steering wheel, handbrake cover and gearknob, plus Motorsport-branded floor mats and scuff plates,” Ford said in a statement.

All we know is, Ford has already promised us a global 2012 global Ford Focus that will get a version of the 4-cylinder Ford EcoBoost engine. A high-performance Ford Fiesta, most likely powered by a 4-cylinder EcoBoost as well, has also been recently spotted driving around Dearbon.
