Do you ever want to reach into TopGear magazine sometimes and shake them by the collar, yelling: “YES, We know the Fiesta ST is fun. Next topic!”
Oh, that is just me? Whatever then! I have gotten really fatigued with Fiesta ST rave reviews. It just didn’t seem relevant. Until the first peel-out.
On the go-kart-track turned Autocross of Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin – the Fiesta ST comes alive. I finally get it. Finally. Finally! The 2014 Ford Fiesta ST really is a hoot.
It is How Stella Got Her Groove Back.
It is the g-spot in Octopussy.
It is the Danger Zone in TopGun.
For hot hatchbacks, the Fiesta ST really is the end-all, be-all.
It was super fun and lively around this mini, tiny track – felt peppy off the line and even sounded pretty amazing while achieving these feats of strength. I loved it. If all roads were like a go-kart track in real life, we would all be in Fiesta ST’s as well.
Not sure how the Fiesta ST would feel out on the open roads — but if there are any curves: trust the gospel of TopGear: this car is top trumps.
