Big Winning: Ford Fiesta ST Awards Put Other Cars to Shame
The Ford Fiesta ST was introduced just last year, and has spent its first months racking up the awards. The 2014 Fiesta ST has already received 22 awards, making the Ford Fiesta ST is the most-awarded performance subcompact Ford has ever created. Most recently the Fiesta ST was named a 2014 Automobile Magazine All-Star.
This hot hatch is making a splash in the car world due to its impressive performance, handling, and value.
“High-technology hot rods like Fiesta ST have helped make fast driving possible for buyers of small cars – even those with modest budgets,” said Jean Jennings, editor-in-chief, Automobile Magazine in a recent news release. “It’s a bullet on the road, with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that sounds like a mini-Ferrari when flogged, supportive Recaro seats and clean shift action. Designed and engineered collaboratively by Ford’s U.S. and European operations, Fiesta ST is a testament to the success of the One Ford global vehicle development philosophy.”
