Ford Fiesta ST

Ford Fiesta ST

The Fiesta ST might only have a three-cylinder 1.5-litre petrol engine under it bonnet, but it's still enough to make this hatchback feel pocket-rocket fast. In fact, the Fiesta ST is excellent to drive, with superb handling and a great driving position. It's one of the best hot hatchbacks around.
