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...

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. As a driver's car, not much comes close for the money. A decent XR4 can be picked up for around $6000 with low kays. The engine is an N/A 2...

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...

2015 Ford Fiesta ST review

As a PhD student, thinking is something I try to avoid when possible, but the Fiesta ST is a car that I find myself constantly thinking about. I've owned it for nearly 1.5 years now. With the release of the new model imminent, I figured it was time I gathered my thoughts into coherent words. One of the first things I worried over was depreciation...

2011 Ford Fiesta LX review

In numerology and various other fields beyond the purview of this site, the number seven possesses some form of significance. And that is, for those among us old enough to remember, before a certain Brad Pitt and the stomach-churning delivery he receives at the climax of a certain motion picture from several years back is considered...

2007 Ford Fiesta XR4 review

I have owned this XR4 for about five or six years now, so I thought I would do a long-term owner's review. You can read my original review here. I originally bought the car as I wanted something a bit more economical and modern than my 5.0-litre Commodore. I needed to do a lot of long commutes but still wanted a fun car...

2015 Ford Fiesta ST review

So, this is now my third year of ownership of my 2015 Fiesta ST. Do I still love it? Hell yeah! Since my last review, which you can read here, I’ve decided to try and eke more power out of the already very willing 1.6-litre four-banger. So far, I have had the MP215 kit put on the car and a legal replacement to the factory electronic blow-off valve...

2015 Ford Fiesta St Review

This is my second review of this car, the first being not too long after I bought it. This one is being written without the rose coloured specs and long after the honeymoon period is gone. This is my experience with the car just a tad over a year down the track... To be completely frank, not a great deal has changed...

2008 Ford Fiesta Lx Review

We've owned this for about a year now, and it's an ideal car for anyone living in the city. At $6000 for a 52,000km example, it's terrific value. At the same price you could get an odd-looking Yaris with 100,000km, an older first-gen Mazda 2, or a slightly newer Getz or Daewoo Barina...
