I’M a huge fan of Ford’s free-revving three-cylinder engines, so the prospect of a near-200bhp version in the new Fiesta ST is tantalising.
We’re told Ford has “obsessed” over the ST’S steering – the most intoxicating part of the old car. The new model is bigger, looks more grown-up and will offer the excellent SYNC 3 infotainment system. Interior quality appears to be vastly improved, plus we’re told there’s more space. Pragmatic stuff, but a hot hatch needs to be all things to all people.
