The Ford Fiesta ST 5-door has been launched inside the UK. Prices start at £18,495, which is actually £0 more than the three-door’s entry cost.

“Ford has currently sold more than 38,000 Fiesta STs in Europe since we introduced the acclaimed hot hatchback in 2013,” said Ford of Europe’s marketing, sales as well as service vice president Roelant de Waard. “Growing numbers of customers have been asking us for a 5-door edition, as well as the completely new Fiesta ST 5-door makes an affordable Ford Performance driving experience accessible to an even greater number of customers.”
