Not a massive discount, its more that prices went crazy due to covid impact very soon after. A 25k car turned into a 28k car and the standard models have followed as they always do. Its just unusual to see the affects of inflation in such a short time period.Yes, you got it cheaper but you got a sizeable discount.
Good point, long live the ST2.new price list comments..
Heated seats/steering wheel now optional on st2/3.
b&o now optional on st3
PP now optional for st2 again
I prefer the design of the new unique st2 wheels
St2/3 specs now closer
I can see the st2 becoming more popular again (smile Ken!!)
new colour boundless blue (all fiesta models), bye bye silver and ford performance blue!!
If i was waiting i would probably go for the new model, but i love the silver fox colour so i wouldn't change mine.Like the mean green, ST3 wheels and digital dash. Not keen on seats. Waiting on my ST3, due in December. I think i'll ask dealer how long I'd have to wait for new model.
Headlight output has nothing to do with fogs.Some thoughts I have.
I was curious about the dropping of the fog lights. It appears that this is becoming a trend. It may be the case that the headlights are so good now that the fog lights aren't necessary... New trend - luxury car makers are dropping fog lamps | Team-BHP.
Not sure how convinced I am of that though. Might be a bit of a cost cutting measure too.
It says the fogs are integrated in the headlights on the ST2 lights but doesn't mention anything about fogs on the matrix ST3 headlights, so i am not sure if the ST3 has them.Headlight output has nothing to do with fogs.
They've always been an optional extra or 'thrown in' as they're not a legal requirement.
I for one am happy to see the back of them, as people always use them incorrectly anyway.
As for this face-lift, it was a long time coming. The Mk8 was toned down and became more "mainstream" to appeal to even more of the masses after the success of the Mk7 variant. So for it to be even more dull is no surprise. Saw someone compare it to a later Ka, which I can see.
