After a very long time of waiting, Ford has finally unveiled its brand new ST version of the new Puma, a highly anticipated crossover sportier SUV.

It is powered by the same 1.5-litre EcoBoost turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine as the standard one and makes 197 HP at 6,000 rpm and 236 lb-ft of torque between 2,500 and 3,500 rpm.

This ST variant comes with a few saucy features, mind. You get 25 per cent faster steering and 17 per cent larger brakes than the standard Puma. Customers also get specially-developed Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres which will help with those sharp corners.

On top of that, you can opt for a Limited Slip Differential (LSD) option for an extra £950. With this, you also get more driving modes, such as ECO mode (which is a first for a Ford Performance car), sport mode, track mode and a normal mode.

Despite all this, the new Puma ST will still be a fuel efficient car, with thanks to that ECO mode which allows it to achieve a solid 47 mpg. But this will be no slouch as it can get from 0-60mph in just 6.7 seconds and has a top speed of 137 mph.

  • Why would you spend more money to have this over a Fiesta ST?

  • It appears way overpriced. I think it would be reasonable starting about 21k. This is not worth it.

    • My comment? Fiestas have been discontinued from production in the US since 2019. But em Europeans peeps get or atleast keep the good stuff.
