Ford has been achieving great success with its lineup for one reason in particular: it has been listening to car enthusiasts. The design of the Fiesta ST reflects the things car lovers want. The fact the Fiesta has seen outstanding success in rally racing hasn’t hurt either. Styling is aggressive and sporty, taking cues from racing, such as the high-mounted rear spoiler and a low center of gravity. The Fiesta is loads of fun to drive, thanks to its 197 horsepower eco-boost engine and electric power-assisted steering. Off the line, the Fiesta ST is more than peppy, it’s downright fast, and through corners the lack of understeer will inspire confidence. Steering is quick and responsive and, despite being front-wheel drive, its tail can be pushed out with a little help from a heavy foot. Take a few turns in the smaller of Ford’s hot hatches and you will agree Ford has been doing the right thing.
