The Ford Fiesta ST could be the most exciting car you ever drive

November 3, 2017 7:59 am |

Ford knows how to bring the fire to a hatchback. They've done it for years, designing and engineering some of the fastest, coolest, most exhilarating hot hatches to ever burn rubber. The Ford Fiesta ST is just another string on the marque's bow, and it could be the exciting practical car you've been waiting for.

Street cred, a huge helping of attitude, fast responses and a race-inspired interior will get your heart pumping when you're behind the wheel. It's the perfect fun car for commuting and holds its own on the open road too (especially if you have windy stretches of tarmac nearby).

When you look this good, you can't help but turn heads. #FiestaST

What makes the Ford Fiesta ST so exciting?

The most enticing, exciting, exhilarating feature of the Ford Fiesta ST is the engine. A 1.6-litre EcoBoost block sits under the hood, producing 134 kilowatts of power and 240 Nm of torque. For a small car, that's great performance, and you'll really feel it when you press the sports pedal to the metal.

Twin exhaust tips out the rear of the car produce a throaty engine note that will give you goosebumps – anytime you need a little stress relief, jump into your Ford Fiesta ST and go for a cruise. Wind the window down and you'll have a front row seat to the symphony coming out the back.

Who should buy a Ford Fiesta ST?

Anybody who loves driving or lives near a road that's fun to drive would appreciate the dynamic driving ability of the Ford Fiesta ST. It's small enough to be perfect for city driving and it's economical, consuming just 6.2 litres of petrol per 100 kilometres.

If you don't need all the extra boot space of a sedan or station wagon and want to really enjoy driving, this is the car for you. Five-spoke alloy wheels and aggressive front and back ends combine to give the Ford Fiesta ST great street appeal, while 'ST' branded racing seats and the Ford SYNC system create the perfect driving environment inside. Connect your phone to the infotainment system via Bluetooth so you can listen to your favourite tunes if you ever get sick of hearing the exhaust note.

Get behind the wheel of this incredibly fun hot hatch today by heading into the Peter Warren Automotive Ford dealership in Sydney. Once you feel the speed off the line and the sharp steering, you'll never want to drive anything else!
