Besides these whopping power and torque outputs, the 2017 ST200 also comes with a lengthy list of exciting features that are not available on other models of Fiesta.

We all have been waiting for a Ford Fiesta with an RS badge only for the automaker to come out saying they won’t be offering the model. In consolation, Ford is releasing a new and more powerful Fiesta which they have dubbed the 2017 Ford Fiesta ST200. This new model was unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Auto Show. The new model improves power and torque compared to the standard Ford Fiesta.

The model will use the same engine as the standard ST but add an OverBoost feature. This pumps output to 212 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque. To the American market, this sounds like a minor upgrade but to the European market it is a huge boost in power. This is because the European Fiesta ST is not as powerful as the model offered in the States. As such, the Fiesta ST200 won’t be setting foot in the United States.

During this week’s Geneva Auto show, Ford stole the limelight and not because of a futuristic looking model or a supercar with a hot-smoking engine, rather by showcasing a stylish hatch which everyone can afford.

Just last month at the launch of the new Ford Focus RS, CarAdvice reported that Ford Performance’s Chief Engineer, Tyrone Johnson, said that a Ford Fiesta RS was definitely not in any of Ford’ s plans for the future. It was quite a bummer to hear, but that was before we heard about the vehicle you see here – the Ford Fiesta ST200. That’s right, Ford didn’t make an RS variant of the Fiesta, but it did come out with a high-performance model of the little hot hatch.

The Fiesta ST hit the market in 2013 with a power output of 179 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque from its 1.6-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder. The ST200 that is set to debut in Geneva is said to produce 10 percent more power and 20 percent more torque than the Fiesta ST. However, that isn’t all that comes with the ST200. It also comes with an exciting list of features not available on other Fiesta models.
