Our Favourite Sport Hatchback This Year

Ford Fiesta ST hatchback (Price starting from £17,250)

The Ford Fiesta ST hatchback is available in three versions, i.e., ST, ST2 and ST3.

The basic model of this car includes a body kit, 17-inch alloy wheels, sporty looking Recaro front seats, spoiler, leather trim and a DAB digital radio. The company has one of the major dealer setups in the United Kingdom and also provides cheap maintenance.

Comfort & interior

Although the Polo from Volkswagen is the top dog when you consider interiors, the dashboard of the ST is perhaps more exciting to look at.

The most understandable modification in the ST when compared to the regular model is the Recaro sports seats addition that offer plenty of help for hard cornering. Sufficient amount of adjustments to the steering wheel and driver’s seats means it’s also very easy to find a relaxed driving place.

Practicality & boot space

The new ST is just as hands-on as the 3-door super-mini, however a lot quicker.

It gives the same space as in the regular model, even though the ST isn’t available with 5 doors. Hence, the ST has enough room in the front part.

Open up the boot to get in plenty of clumsy stuff, but there is also an irritating step to lift stuff over.

Reliability & safety

The ST from Ford is based upon UK’s top selling car, hence should be worry-free largely.

Similar to any other car in the Fiesta range, the ST has 7 airbags, anti-lock brakes, and electronic stability control all of which brought it to the top of this list. Additionally, the ST’s braking system is more powerful as compared to the brakes fixed to other models in the range.

Drive, Engines, and performance

The Ford Fiesta ST, without a doubt is among of the most engaging small hatchbacks for sale.

The car will give you sufficient amount of confidence to drive fast. Fans will also be pleased to see this model has a manual gearbox instead of a slow witted auto gearbox similar to the one inside the Renaultsport Clio, along with the active steering which is another great factor about the car.

The car gets its power from an 180bhp 1.6-lit Eco-Boost petrol engine which makes the car go from from 0 to 62mph in just 6.9 sec, with a top speed – 139mph.

You could expect the new ST from Ford to hold on nearly 44% of its price after 3 years and 36,000 miles of travel, just like the Renault sport Clio and the Peugeot 208 GTI.
