The prospects of a Ford Fiesta RS revealed a few weeks ago seem to be an impossible dream. This has been officially confirmed by Mr. Amko Leenarts - Head of design for Ford in Europe that a more powerful Fiesta is actually not necessary when the current Fiesta is already strong enough. So now, it can be stated that there will not be any Fiesta RS model jumping into the Ford lineup, at least not at this time.
The Blue Oval may decide to change its mindset in the upcoming years to bring the previous-gen Fiesta ST a more impressive ST200 variant in some markets, aiming at satisfying the demand for a speedier supermini.

On the other hand, the German car manufacturer Volkswagen confirmed earlier this year that it was building a new Volkswagen Polo GTI. This means the hot hatch of the carmaker could either receive a Performance variant or a Polo R version which is similar to the larger Golf GTI R and Performance versions. Both of two new models will be more powerful than the ongoing 197 hp GTI. The VW Polo GTI was initially offered a 6-speed, dual-clutch automatic and a 6-speed manual transmission
