Ford Fi­esta ST

Wheels (Australia) - - Redline -

Pow­ered by a 1.5-litre turbo three-pot, Ford’s lat­est Fi­esta ST looks set to give the likes of the Clio RS200 and the Polo GTI some se­ri­ous com­pe­ti­tion when it lands in April. With 147kw, 290Nm charged with pro­pelling just 1262kg up the road, it sounds a po­tent mix, the 6.5sec 0-100km/h time be­ing not far short of some­thing like a Hyundai i30n. Good news for three-ped­allers is that a man­ual gear­box is of­fered, and a Quaife lim­ited slip diff’ keeps things neat up front. Pric­ing kicks off at $27,490 for the three-door pocket rocket.
