Ford Fiesta ST specification upgrades ruled out for Australia

Europe will receive a revised, better-equipped version of the Ford Fiesta ST hot-hatch, but the changes won't flow through to Australia. The Ford Fiesta ST 3 model has been launched in select European markets, bringing additional equipment such as satellite navigation and digital radio reception at a small premium - but the company's local arm has informed CarAdvice that no such changes will be offered here because the brand wants its hot-hatch to remain the sharpest priced of its peers...

Ford Fiesta Sport Review

Paying more for less usually works out poorly for the punter. But that's exactly what buyers need to do if they want to get themselves behind the wheel of the new Ford Fiesta Sport. Ford’s new second-tier model in its city car range starts off with a sizeable starting price of $20,525, but has a tiny 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine...

Filmed on what is dubbed as "the ultimate gymkhana grid course", Gymkhana Six sees Block and his mental 485kW/880Nm four-wheel-drive Hoonigan Racing Ford Fiesta ST lay down Pirelli rubber between earth movers, Need for Speed-style Lamborghini Aventador police cars and Segway-mounted 'police'...

Hot hatch comparison: Ford Fiesta ST v Peugeot 208 GTi v Volkswagen Polo GTI

This time last year driving enthusiasts with less than $30,000 to spend on a new hot-hatch had a single option: the Volkswagen Polo GTI. Okay, technically they could also pick its near-twin, the Skoda Fabia RS, but the sales charts show they didn’t. Meanwhile the Suzuki Swift Sport simply isn’t high enough on the Peri-Peri heat scale to compete...

Light car comparison: Renault Clio v Ford Fiesta v Kia Rio v Volkswagen Polo

Light hatchbacks have never been this polished. The Renault Clio, Volkswagen Polo, Kia Rio and Ford Fiesta all make a convincing case for spending $19,990-plus on a high-grade light hatch, rather than a base model larger hatch. The catalyst for this comparison test is the re-introduction of the regular Renault Clio models, in new fourth-generation form...

The Ford Fiesta ST sees the end of a five-year sabbatical for a high-performance version of the Blue Oval company's city car. Ford hasn’t offered a hot Fiesta since the last generation XR4 went off sale in 2008. The XR4 was a brilliant hatch, and at $24,990 was a performance bargain. But it wasn’t held in the esteem of the then $38,000 RenaultSport Clio but was easily the best hatch below it...
