ST-3 adds 18in alloy wheels, automatic headlights and wipers, power-folding door mirrors, a heated steering wheel, sat-nav, traffic sign recognition, a rear-view camera, rear parking sensors, driver and passenger lumbar adjustment and keyless entry.
The Fiesta ST's engine is a cracker, and so much more soulful than a Renault Clio RS's or VW Polo GTI's.
