2014 Ford Fiesta ST is best hot hatch in the world
Performance is alive and well around the globe and the new 2014 Ford Fiesta ST proves that it will continue. The Fiesta ST took the Best Hot Hatch crown in Europe and is now advancing around the globe and launches in China for the first time. Ford dominated this year’s Auto Express Awards with four honors, more than any other manufacturer, and the Fiesta was awarded with two. It's good news for performance fans.
The new Ford Fiesta has already made a name for itself in the UK and its popularity is reflected in the demand for the sporty hatch. Registrations in the UK rose from 96,000 new registrations in 2011 to 109,000 last year. This year is shaping up to be even better with close to 61,000 registrations reported in the first six months of the year, which is 1,500 more than the same time last year. And the hot Fiesta ST has over 2,250 more than last year.
The best hot hatch on the planet
What is driving the demand for the new Fiesta ST? Steve Fowler, Auto Express editor-in-chief, said the latest Ford Fiesta line-up has something for everyone. “The recent range refresh has taken Fiesta back to the top of the class, combining style, quality and driving fun that just isn’t available anywhere else. The ST is an absolute joy to drive, so far and away the best hot hatch you can buy – a thrill-a-minute to drive and an absolute bargain too.”
