Fiesta ST is hottest of all says What Car?
Ford’s Fiesta ST is the hottest of the hot, according to Britain’s best motoring experts.
The car was named the UK’s best hot hatch for the fourth consecutive year at the 2017 What Car? Awards.
More than 25,000 owners have discovered the delights of the Fiesta ST since its launch in 2013. And to celebrate the 40th anniversary last year of the Fiesta – Britain’s best-selling car every year since 2008 – the ST200 was added to the range, boosting by a further 18PS the 182PS available from the existing 1.6-litre Fiesta ST. Family drivers are not left out, either, as a five-door Fiesta ST joined the range last year in addition to the original three-door body style.
Steve Huntingford, What Car? editor, said: “The Ford Fiesta ST is impossible to dislike. It leaves rivals trailing on a challenging road because it dives into corners like a terrier chasing a bouncing ball and the steering is full of feel. In normal use, it doesn’t disappoint. Like all Fiestas, the ST has a decent boot and plenty of cubbyholes and is small enough to feel wieldy around town.
“Fiesta ST is the best all-round hot hatch. It strikes the perfect balance between performance and affordability. It lets you attack B-roads without worrying about the width of the car or how powerful it is. In fact, it’s sharper than the BMW M140i, which costs almost £15,000 more. To add to its appeal, the ST combines all of this with the reliability, practicality and dealer coverage that has made the Fiesta top seller.”
The consumer magazine and website, attracting over 1.95 million monthly users, chose the well-equipped Fiesta ST-2, priced at £18,895, as their recommended model complete with heated Recaro front sports seats and Ford Power push button start.
