Sorry too lazy to bust my memory banks on the Fiesta time lines :-)
The current gen Fiesta (production version) was unveiled at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show.
The Fiesta ST was first previewed as a Concept at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show, about a year before the facelifted Fiesta was unveiled at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.

The current Focus & Fiesta ST already have torque vectoring.
I think AWD could also work for the next Focus ST, sort of like an RS-lite. Similar to how a Subaru WRX is a mild version of the WRX STI.
