The hugely popular and highly rated Ford Fiesta is available in sporty ST form, which is one of the very best hot hatches money can buy. The Fiesta ST is a blast to drive – delivering plenty of pace and power – while being surprisingly cost-effective to run.
The Fiesta ST is a good-looking vehicle, not least because it rides on 17-inch alloy wheels as standard and looks dapper in its ST-specific body style. The vehicle’s front fascia possesses a striking black-mesh radiator grille, which is flanked by sharp-looking headlights. The car’s rear fascia, meanwhile, is adorned by a trio of eye-catching features: a roof-mounted spoiler, twin exhausts and a diffuser.
Inside the vehicle, front-row travellers are treated to bolstered Recaro sports seats that provide a comfortable ride and offer plenty of adjustability. The driver also benefits from an ST-specific steering wheel, which is leather-wrapped, and a dazzlingly red ST gearshift knob, complete with conspicuous silver insert. The car’s sound system includes DAB digital radio and a CD player, each helping to keep you and your co-passengers suitably entertained.
A 2.0-litre 180bhp petrol engine delivers 240Nm of torque, 0-60mph in roughly seven seconds and a top speed of 139mph. While it is decidedly pacy, this particular unit also delivers noteworthy fuel-efficiency: as much as 46.3mpg, while producing a 141g/km CO2 figure.
A potent engine requires strong brakes, something that the Fiesta ST happily possesses, as well as a wide range of safety features. The vehicle has been awarded Euro NCAP’s maximum five-star crash-test rating and comes with all the driver aids you would expect. These include Electronic Stability Control and Torque Vectoring System, each helping to keep the car stable, regardless of road conditions. The car also comes with front fog lamps, which ensure that visibility is as good as it possibly can be in the mistiest of circumstances.
