Introduction

What Car? says...

Over the years, the Ford Fiesta ST has earned the right to sit proudly among the biggest names in the hot-hatch hall of fame – and that's pretty much the highest compliment you can pay a car.

The Fiesta ST can hold its head up high alongside the GTi version of the Peugeot 205 (which we named best car in the history of What Car?) and even deserves a mention in the same breath as the celebrated Mk1 Golf GTI, one of our Past Masters.

Is the Ford Fiesta ST still the best small hot hatchback on sale? Read on through this review to find out how it stacks up against its main hot hatch rivals, including the Hyundai i20 N, Suzuki Swift Sport and VW Polo GTI.
