2020 Ford Fiesta: ST, Price, Concept, Redesign, and Specs. 2020 Ford Fiesta is the model that will survive spring cleaning which manufacturer has prepared for their models in the future. The reason is mostly old-fashioned models and dropping in selling for many of the sedans and hatchbacks that come from this factory. Fiesta is still among the demanded vehicles, and obviously very attractive to young buyers.
2020 Ford Fiesta ST is one of those cars that are announced as the biggest surprise from the manufacturer and the model that will be removed from the market at the same time. The reason is very high production in other car class, so small hatchback simply remains invisible to the designer. We have reasons to believe and claim that they will offer this version of the well-known model and it will be slightly changed over the years to come.
There are two engine options in new 2020 Ford Fiesta, that are actually the same in weight and size, but not in strength they offer. The base model includes a 1.6-liter petrol unit with 120 horsepower of strength and 112 pound-feet of torque. Even though this is maybe a smaller engine that is usual for the class, buyers mostly choose this version. The higher trim has the same 1.6-liter but with turbocharged addition and strength of 197 horsepower along with the 202 pound-feet of torque. This model has an acceptable fuel economy, the buyers that choose this version usually are loved in sporty cars. Both engines come with five and six-speed automatic transmission and as the front-wheel driving version.
The engine in 2020 Ford Fiesta ST will not be much different from the current ones and not much innovative, if we must say that. There should be 1.6-liter four-cylinder petrol unit that produces 200 horsepower of strength and 225 pound-feet of torque. The transmission is not known so far, but it will surely be an automatic one. As Fiesta is a small and lightweight car, the speed of 60 mph increases for only 9 seconds, which is great in the class. That also presumes good fuel economy, but those numbers are not shared.
There is no much information about the interior of 2020 Ford Fiesta ST, but we expect significant updates in that field. The rumors mentioned 2.0 Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connection, as well as a larger touchscreen in the dashboard and maybe new rearview cameras and some kind of driver assistant. The dashboard should be redesigned, and offer much more space and better visibility for the driver. The cabin obviously can not be much bigger than before, but it will be more comfortable.
There are no much changes in the design of the 2020 Ford Fiesta for the future. The hatchback version of it is close to Toyota Prius with the short front end and small, egg-like chassis. The sedan model is among the attractive versions like Chevrolet Sonic and Nissan Versa. Expect simple and flat trunk door with the thin rear lights and slightly lifter rear end on the sedan.
The cabin inside of 2020 Ford Fiesta, depending on the version, offers small and tight and perhaps wide and roomy space. Buyers describe it as practical and useful in both versions, with plenty of equipment and attractive details. The manufacturer promises 25 cubic feet of cargo space, which is not bad for this size of the cars. When it comes to the design, higher trims will have leather on the seats and acceptable quality plastic on the dashboard.
There is a big dilemma if 2020 Ford Fiesta ST will be a two-door hatchback as before or it will get another two doors, at least for the outside of the US market. Before we have an answer on that, let’s say that it has a recognizable gridded grille, small trunk, and egg-like shape, and that will not be changed soon.
2020 FORD FIESTA RELEASE DATE AND PRICE
The final version of the model should be on the market before the end of 2019. If you are satisfied with the standard equipment of the hatchback model, you could be an owner of one of these for only $16,000. Our recommendation is to consider of at least ST version that cost only $1,000 more. If you are willing to buy a sedan model, you should prepare around $20,000, while the highest trim should be around $23,000. As you can see, for a few thousand dollars more you can own pretty much modern and well-equipped family car.
There are also rumors that the US and Europe will get something similar to Fiesta ST, but we can not confirm if that will be called the same. We are not sure what the reason is for this, as well as for literally killing small hatchback in Ford in past few years, but time will say if that was a smart move. The starting price for 2020 Ford Fiesta ST should be the same as before, and that is $13,000.
