Over the years the Ford Fiesta has been one of the biggest selling small cars in the UK market, not only because it was cheap, but because it was also practical as well. Then there was the fact that you had the XR2, which gave boy racers a chance to get a more powerful car on a budget. However, things have changed, and now there is the new Ford Fiesta ST.
If you wondered if this latest model was going to be a success, then fear not as the Ford Fiesta ST UK version already has high demand, as they have over half the 3,000 pre-orders in Europe. This does show that the all-new model has something special, which we will see just what that is in a selection of video reviews below.
In the first Ford Fiesta ST review they begin by saying that while the basic Ford Fiesta is fun to drive, the ST is something special because beneath its bonnet is a 1.6-litre turbocharged engine, pumping out up to 200 horsepower — rather impressive for such a small unit. The body kit seems appropriate with the engine and the loud exhaust. The video review covers all the basics of the car, as well as seeing just how well it drives.
Ford Fiesta ST vs. XR2 — We love this second video because it pits the all-new 2013 Ford Fiesta ST against the classic Ford Fiesta, just to see how the two compare when being driven around a racetrack.
However, to see what the new hot-hatch can really do then you want to see Ken Block driving the Ford Fiesta ST 2013. This will give you an idea of just how well the new model handles while being thrown about, just to prove the amount of grip there is at hand.
The Ford Fiesta ST UK price is just £16,995, another reason why the model is so popular. If you’re looking for something a little bigger with just as much fun, then you should consider the 2013 Ford Focus ST instead.
