Performance geared to your style of driving.
Torque Vectoring Control19
Once you’re into a curve, G-forces tend to transfer more traction to the outside tires than to the inside ones. Standard Torque Vectoring Control enhances that by transferring torque to the wheels that have the most grip, reducing understeer and forcing the front end to hug the inside of the curve.19
The Fiesta Euro-inspired front suspension is a lightweight, compact design ideally suited to the demands of tight, winding roads requiring maximum agility and stability. Suspension arms and a stabilizer bar are connected to a front crossmember that is hard-mounted to the unibody structure, helping to isolate the body from the suspension system. Additional braces from the back of the crossmember to the body help enhance performance, while the stabilizer bar helps reduce body roll while cornering. The Twistbeam rear axle is designed to reduce understeer....less
Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS)
Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) operates more efficiently than conventional steering with an electric motor instead of a power-draining hydraulic pump. Its speed-sensitive technology adapts to changing conditions to help improve manoeuvrability and handling. EPAS provides an easy, fluid feel of the wheel during low-speed manoeuvres, which becomes firmer as speed increases. That’s not all. EPAS can offset pulling or drifting caused by steady crosswinds or crowned road surfaces and can also damp wheel vibrations....less
AdvanceTrac® Electronic Stability Control (ESC)19
Standard AdvanceTrac automatically applies the brakes and modulates engine torque whenever it detects wheelslip. Working with AdvanceTrac technology, the Anti-Lock Brake System helps maintain braking control under conditions such as ice, gravel or rain, providing confident stopping power19.
Manual and Automatic Transmissions
For those who appreciate the feel of sport and the control of a clutch-actuated manual transmission, the Fiesta S and SE models come with a five-speed manual while the high-output Fiesta ST has a slick-shifting six-speed on the floor. But if automatic convenience is your preference, there’s the PowerShift six-speed with SelectShift®, optional in the S and SE; standard in the luxury Titanium. It delivers both excellent fuel efficiency* and must-have performance, using its dual-clutch technology to produce continuous torque to the drive wheels. And it has a selectable mode that lets you shift gears manually but without the clutch.
