For a while now, Ford has told us that performance cars are selling well. Apparently they are quite popular in Europe, but not everyone has the means to run out and buy a Fiesta ST or Focus ST, much less the hot new Focus RS. Well, Ford of Europe has something new for fans of its performance rides that donâ€™t want to break the bankâ€”the ST-Line.
This new trim level for the Fiesta and Focus offers styling and handling inspired by the sportier Fiesta and Focus ST, but leaves the big engine performance to those vehicles.
â€œWith our new ST-Line range even more customers can experience sporty style and driving dynamics inspired by our most exciting Ford Performance line-up ever, that includes models such as the Focus RS, new Fiesta ST200 and Ford GT supercarâ€ said Roelant de Waard, vice president, Marketing, Sales & Service, Ford of Europe. â€œThis year we expect to sell 40,000 performance cars in Europe, a 50 percent increase compared with 2015, which in turn saw performance car sales rise by 61 percent compared with 2014.â€
