To be known as the S1600 in the UK and the Sport S in Germany, the Sport+ will also be sold in Austria, Belgium and Switzerland.

Unlike the 2010 model, the new vehicle is powered by an uprated version of the standard 1.6-litre petrol engine, producing 98kW of power and 160Nm of torque – an increase of 10kW and 8Nm.

The extra power drops its 0-100km/h sprint to 8.7 seconds and bumps up its top speed to 195km/h.

From the outside, the body kit includes a new front bumper, side skirts, roof-mounted rear spoiler and a rear diffuser with integrated dual exhaust pipes.

The 17-inch alloy wheels are finished in white, and the vehicle can be optioned in two unique colour schemes: Performance Blue with white Motorsport stripes, or Frozen White with blue stripes.

Inside is a leather-wrapped sports steering wheel, blue-stitched sports seats, and badged floor mats and scuff plates.

The price for the 2011 Ford Fiesta Sport S in Germany is €18,090 ($24,450).
