Its aggressive styling, innovative technology and fuel saving performance certainly gives other hot hatches a run for their money but does it lack comfort and practicality?
Check out its design, performance and efficiency…
Exterior / Interior…
With its body styling, aerodynamic profile, ST spoiler and an option for 17” alloys, the exterior really has a cutting edge design. The choice of bold colours have a huge visual impact on the road.
Recaro driving seat, alloy pedals and leather trimmed steering wheel and gear stick, the ST interior oozes the style of a performance car.
The style of seating, however, seems to make you feel like you’re sitting on the car rather than nestled in it, and I wonder if after a while this will cause back aches and pains.
The ST boot size isn’t the biggest of the hot hatches out there and the fact that the seats don’t completely flatten means it’s not the best vehicle out there for practicality.
Although there are some down points to the interior of the hot hatch, there is no question it looks the part but does it measure up on performance and efficiency?
Performance and Efficiency…
The Fiesta ST boasts an impressive 6-speed manual transmission to gain maximum power and fuel efficiency as you move through each gear. The new 1.6 litre, 4-cylinder EcoBoost petrol engine not only gives you the power of a conventional engine but the fuel economy of up to 47.9mpg (combined).
Want to know what it is really like to have one of these cars for yourself, then visit the Fiesta ST Owners Club. The site provides a forum for its 9000 members to discuss the ST and share reviews and experiences on the vehicle.
The Fiesta ST is already reaching Ford direct dealers and now available as a used car for example here.
