Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
Front space in the Ford Fiesta ST is excellent, so people of most shapes and sizes should be happy with the head and leg room on offer. You also get a decent glovebox, a sizeable cubby at the base of the dashboard and generous door pockets for storing odds and ends.
As with most of its rivals, the Fiesta ST is now only available as a five-door. In the back, it matches the Volkswagen Polo GTI for head and leg room but not interior width. The chunky front sports seats do steal a bit of rear legroom and it’s a lot snugger for a couple of taller adults than the Hyundai i20 N but it's still roomier than the Suzuki Swift Sport and the Toyota GR Yaris (which is tiny in the back),
