We could make a very good argument for the Ford Fiesta ST being one of the best cars on sale today. This hot hatchback ticks almost every box with a 1.6 litre turbocharged engine for great performance, a brilliant chassis tuned to near perfection and on top of all the exciting stuff it is still a Fiesta. Being practical, reliable and easy to live with makes this level of performance accessible to just about anyone looking for a car. Oh, and did I mention it is an absolute bargain at £17,250? New top Specification Ford Fiesta ST.
According to Ford, 90% of all Ford Fiesta ST’s sold are in top ST2 flavour and so a decision has been made to create an ST3 variation. Whilst performance stays the same, 0-62MPH in 6.9 seconds via 180BHP, the new ST3 offers DAB radio, satellite navigation, automatic headlights, automatic wipers, keyless entry and cruise control. These creature comforts are to satisfy demand for higher equipment levels.
Sales of the ST are some 20% higher than Ford originally expected and so this new model was an easy decision when it came to production. The ST3 will cost £19,250.
