The diminutive Ford Fiesta just got some balls.

Americans with a penchant for hatchbacks will finally have a homegrown winner in 2014 when the folks from Dearborn bring the Fiesta ST to market. The Performance-minded ST packs a 197 horsepower in the 1.6-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder and a stiffened suspension. Styling is also differentiated from humbler kin through sporty side skirts, a dual rear exhaust, and special 17-inch wheels.

Look for a full reveal this week at the L.A. Auto Show.
