Ford Fiesta makes AutoCars best cars of 2013 list


Ford is renowned for making high quality vehicles such as new and second hand Ford Focus and Ford Fiesta cars.

One such Ford, the Fiesta ST, has made the AutoCar best cars of 2013 list. The magazine describes the car as "great" and says that Ford has built it on the foundations of the standard Fiesta with a petrol and diesel version of the Ford Fiesta ST, with the handling and steering of being very easy, as is the case with the rest of the range.

With new Ford vehicles there will always be updates and the Ford Fiesta ST is no different with an 180bhp turbocharged 1.6 litre petrol engine and a six geared manual gearbox. The changes to the Fiesta ST have also not added to the overall cost of the car, meaning that it is still affordable on a budget.

The car also has a sports suspension, enhanced brakes and advanced technology, but again still offers the best aspects of the traditional Fiesta, as it is spacious, comfortable and highly fuel-efficient.

It is no wonder the Ford Fiesta ST made the best car list for AutoCar, as it was made to perfection after more than 5,000 km of track testing and fine-tuning at the legendary Nurburgring circuit in Germany.

The car's safety level was also taken into account with the choosing of the best cars and the Ford Fiesta ST does not disappoint, with high tech airbags on the driver and passengers sides of the car, an early warning system for a flat tyre, a more controlled braking system and a Ford MyKey system that allows the driver to set a maximum speed limit, as well as brighter headlights to enable safer night driving.
