The 2016 Ford Fiesta ST follows the typical hot-hatch formula—involving equal parts more power, a more athletic handling experience, and matching looks—but there’s actually nothing quite like the Blue Oval’s pocket rocket. While other mainstream automakers heat up their compact offerings, the Fiesta is a subcompact package that’s more affordable, more efficient, and possibly even more fun to drive (thanks to its tidier and nimbler dimensions).
The Fiesta ST also packs a punch. It fits a high-powered EcoBoost engine beneath its hood, with nearly 200 horsepower on tap. Nor did Ford merely dial up the boost here: There’s a full complement of ST performance enhancers on hand, from the suspension to the steering, along with the latest SYNC 3 technology and heated Recaro seats.
