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...

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...

2018 Ford Fiesta Titanium review: An expat's view of the one we won't get

As a expat living in the UK, I thought I would write a review of a car you won’t get, but probably should. (Editor's note: We're getting the hot ST model, but not the wider range.) The car in question is a 2018 Ford Fiesta Titanium EcoBoost 1.0L 5-door, in a rather fetching deep impact blue (Note the red shown here - Ed)...

2007 Ford Fiesta XR4 review

I have owned my XR4 for a little over a year now, and I have loved every moment. I bought it as my first car because I wanted something relatively cheap, reliable, and reasonably quick.

2014 Ford Fiesta ST review

Having seen a few of these reviews for a variety of cars, it seemed necessary for me to chip in my thoughts on my little Fiesta ST. In short, I love it. This is a late 2014 build that I've owned from new, and it has never given me one bit of grief. I've come from a variety of fairly plain cars of my folks' and my own (Mk VI Golfs, Mazdas, Ford Focus), so the ST was my first foray into a more sporting car, and I would never go back...
