The Top 100 cars awards recently voted the new Ford Fiesta St top of the hot hatch and coupe category. Beating cars including the Golf GTi, Mercedes A 45 AMG and BMW 4-series coupe, the Fiesta ST brings back the magic of the hot hatch that many think has been missing for the past few years.

With 179bhp produced from the 1.6 turbo engine, the Fiesta is congratulated for great handling and being more enjoyable to drive than any car in its field.  Add to that the £16,995 price; it is cheaper than other car in the top 5 and more than £20,000 than the third place Mercedes A45 AMG.  Whether you are after a car that can hurtle into corners on at speed and pull away rapidly or do daily tasks without fuss, then the new Fiesta ST is the car for you.
