I thought I'd put a post together about reasons that you should buy the Fiesta ST, if you're considering a sports car.
The Fiesta ST looks amazing. It's a real head turner and the difference between the standard Fiesta and the ST is obvious just by taking a look at the outside. Looking at the interior, it is completely different. From the seats, to the radio - that includes bluetooth technology and voice command, the interior is sporty, yet luxurious.

Obviously this car is fast, ST stands for Sports Technologies. The difference between this one and the previous Fiesta ST is the it has an EcoBoost engine, which means that it's super fast, but it saves you fuel. It's a 1.6L, 16 valve, turbo charged direct injection Ecoboost engine, and let me tell you this thing moves, the first time I drove it, I felt like it was literally pulling me back into the seat, its thrilling for a speed freak. It has 6 gears, and has a shifting indicator if you're looking to save fuel while driving, even though it's oh so tempting to wait a little longer between changing gears :)
3. SYNC technology
The SYNC function is one of my other favourites in this car, the Kuga has it as well, but I played around with it a lot in the ST. SYNC allows you to make calls, send texts and play music off your device using voice command, just by pressing a button with a little face on it, on the steering wheel. Some of the time it didn't understand me (apparently it's because I have a thick Coloured/Indian accent lol), but most of the time it understood the command.
I thought I'd include the things that I didn't really enjoy about the car. The suspension is really low, so if you're driving on a bumpy road, or even just an uneven road, you feel every bump. The other thing is that it isn't very spacious, especially at the back, if you have a family, I'm not sure if it's a good decision for you to go for this one.
Other than that, it's been a great week with the Fiesta, I feel so fortunate and blessed to have been able to roam around with it this week, thank you Ford. I look forward to the next test drive!
Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post.
