Discover the Ford Fiesta ST
Over an extensive test drive that included 2,107 miles incorporating urban and rural roads before concluding at the world famous World Rally Championship in Wales.
Powered by a 1.5l three-cylinder engine the All-New Ford Fiesta ST produces a mightily impressive 197bhp, Autoexpress.co.uk noted “once you get on the road in our Ford, it makes you feel like a rally driver. The engine is nearly as rowdy as the WRC cars’, popping away on the overrun and pushing on with a snarl as you accelerate from low revs”.
Commenting on the exceptional handling of the All-New Ford Fiesta ST Autoexpress.co.uk stated: “The steering is quick and gives plenty of feedback from the road, and there’s lots of front-end grip, so you can throw it into corners and enjoy its well-sorted chassis”.
Maximum 5-star review
Wowing on the long-term review with Autoexpress.co.uk, the All-New Ford Fiesta ST was awarded the maximum five stars. In summing up the test-drive Autoexpress.co.uk commented “The Fiesta ST’s driving experience makes us feel like a rally driver on a twisty road, but Ford’s hot supermini doesn’t sacrifice road manners or equipment to do so. It’s one of the best all-rounders you can buy”.
