Ford Fiesta ST
It's been a slightly eventful week for the Fiesta. First, it took me and my bike on holiday to Suffolk.
The boot was filled with luggage and cycling paraphernalia, then the bike was firmly secured to the tailgate on my bike rack. It was barely noticeable. Aside from some extra whistling on the M25, the Fiesta seemed largely unaffected by the somewhat unaerodynamic encumberance.
There was no dip in performance, and nor did the cycle-shaped rudder cause the car to wander at all at speed. The best news of all was that the Fiesta did the trip up there and back and still managed to average 35.4mpg. Brilliant.
