REVIEW

The hot hatchback – a mainstay of the performance car market since the mid-80’s – and one of the first was the Ford Fiesta XR2. The name may have changed from XR to RS to ST, but the hot Fiesta has always provided the sweetest handling for the money in the market. The previous Fiesta ST200 was widely heralded as the best handling car in the class, so Ford has stuck to what it knows with this new Fiesta ST model. Based on an all new platform, the new Fiesta is slightly bigger, but a touch lighter too, and this new ST has the same 197bhp as the outgoing model. But where the difference comes in is how that power is produced – in this instance by a new 1.5 litre turbocharged 3-cylinder engine. Yes you read that correctly – a 3-cylinder 1.5 producing just shy of 200bhp! This is of course the current trend for downsizing kicking in, and means that the new ST produces the same power, but emits less CO2 and drinks less fuel, all with the same performance. One extra benefit of this new powerplant is the noise – three cylinder engines have a distinct thrum and burble to them, like half of a Porsche 911 engine and when combined with some fruity exhaust tuning and intake/turbo noise we can expect the new ST is going to be huge fun to throw around you favourite country roads.
