We recently reviewed the 2014 Ford Fiesta ST and Emme had an opportunity to take it to the TFL Test Track to have a go. While the Fiesta ST is a great street car with good fuel economy, it really does impress on a track where it can stretch its legs. The turbocharged engine makes 197 hp and 202 lb-ft of torque. Also, being a turbo engine, it performs better in high-altitude situations better than a non-turbo equivalent would.
Small turbocharged cars are always fun, and Emme enjoys the Fiesta ST a lot. But how well does this bang-for-your-buck hot hatch perform around our test track? You’ll just have to watch and see!
