Project Cars: 2020 Ford Fiesta ST

What defines the 'ideal' hot hatch? While it’s impossible to answer such a subjective question – attempt to find a concrete one among the omniscient Internet car community and, well, it's impossible – I’d argue most enthusiasts will agree on a select number of core traits...

Ford Fiesta ST v Volkswagen Polo GTI : Comparison Review

Rarely has Volkswagen’s iconic GTI badge been so humbled as it was in November 2013 when we last put the go-fast Polo in the ring with the Ford Fiesta ST. The big-name fighter with all the pomp and pedigree was made to look overpriced, under-equipped and lacking fun factor compared with the featherweight upstart that so resoundingly reminded us that simplicity and greatness are not mutually exclusive...

2020 Ford Fiesta ST review

Ferris Has Grown Up. I was previously the very happy owner of a 2014 Ford Fiesta ST (which I reviewed for this website). I had christened this vehicle Ferris after the 1980’s movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. The old Fiesta was like Ferris; it was small, cheeky and a whole lot of fun...

2013 Ford Fiesta Ambiente review

I have owned my Fiesta WZ Ambiente since new in 2013, and have kept it all the way to this day in May 2020! It now has 120,000km on the odometer. The car is fit for what it was designed for; a city/town runabout. I drive 500km a week and live up a dirt road that’s not always maintained by council. The little Fiesta handles it with ease and better than some so-called 4x4’s...

2014 Ford Fiesta ST review

The 2014 Ford Fiesta ST should have been called the Ford Ferris, after the 1980’s film “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Because like the adorable Ferris Bueller, the Ford Fiesta ST is brash, cheeky, fun, and it does things its peers could never do. Plus I think it would probably also be dating the hot chick if it were in school...

2013 Ford Fiesta ST review

Many many words have been written by car journalists about the Fiesta ST. I thought however, that this would be a good opportunity to give a longer, long-term impression of the car. My ST was purchased in January 2014 and I have since put about 72,000kms on it. I owned an XR4 at the time, and test driving an ST revealed that it was better in almost every conceivable way...
