Lovers have been up in arms over Ford recycling a reputation beforehand reserved for a coupé for yet another crossover, so a hotted-up model is probably the Blue Oval’s option to make amends. Not a lot could be gleaned externally at first look, as this automotive sports activities an analogous look to the ST Line model of the usual automotive, incorporating the identical bigger air intakes, deeper facet skirts and body-coloured cladding and rear diffuser.

Look intently, nonetheless, and also you’ll realise fairly a bit is occurring beneath.

Additionally showing to be greater are the entrance disc brakes that fill the 17-inch alloy wheels significantly better than the weedy commonplace objects, whereas the rear finish will get a pair of spherical tail pipes.

Inside, essentially the most notable change is the beefier Recaro seats, complementing the ST Line’s flat-bottomed steering wheel and distinctive gearknob. Because the Puma relies on the Fiesta, the ST ought to get the latter‘s 1.5 litre turbocharged three-cylinder engine that makes 200 PS and 290 Nm of torque, together with a six-speed guide gearbox. Anticipate the zero-to-100 km/h dash to be barely slower than the Fiesta’s 6.5 seconds.
