Sadly, it’s only the visual bit that gets the extra salt and pepper

Ford announced the availability of two ST-Line versions for the new Fiesta supermini: Red Edition and Black Edition.

The changes exclusively affect the new Fiesta’s looks. The Fiesta ST-Line Red Edition, for example, receives a Race Red body paint spiced with matte black stripes that run from the front to the rear via the roof.

For the Black Edition, the paintjob involves the Panther Black hue and the same matte black stripes, this time highlighted by red edges.

Both versions are available with Ford’s 1-liter EcoBoost powerplant making 140 PS twinned to a six-speed manual. The duo is said to dring just 4.9 liters of fuel every 100 km, while emission levels stand at 112g/km of CO2.
