What happens when you mix a sports car with a happy attitude? You get one fun ride, also known as the 2014 Ford Fiesta ST
Just slide on in to the driver’s seat and you’ll see why. Perhaps it is the six speed manual transmission or the sleek bucket seats. Maybe it is the relationship that forms with a very close and comfortable design; whatever it is, it leaves a smile on your face.
With its 1.6L turbocharged four cylinders, it is small enough to be driven on city streets but packs power when the open road is calling. The steering is very quick at a 13.6:1 ratio, and the Fiesta feels eager and raring to go. The crown jewel is the way it handles corners. You can get into the corner as fast as you like and the ST bites into the turn, requiring just a little lift off the throttle, to send the tail perfectly around the corner.
The hatchback is a relatively new look for Ford, and while inspired by European style for the Focus ST the company’s design language evolved, resulting in a superb new vehicle. The ST has been refined, sitting lower than the other Fiesta models. It is slim and upright and went through an aerodynamic treatment of the rear spoiler, diffuser, and front splitter.
Plus, it smiles! The appearance of the grille in front makes the Fiesta ST look as if it’s smiling when it zips down the streets. It boasts an appearance as though it is happy to be outside, and happy to be on the road.
