Fixed the link I think, but here's a screen capture if it still doesn't work:

62 plate St-2 with 590 miles on the clock for £20,745. There's no way a Fiesta ST could cost anywhere near this!

Thanks. That is a very good good price indeed. I bet there will be some great deals on pre reg and ex demo Fiesta ST cars a few months after launch.

An Audi A1 185 can be easily be specced to £23k and as high as £27k when I fully loaded one for fun a whole back. Although high, considering the performance on offer the price isn't as bad as people make out. You have to remember that a Golf GTi costs around £25k before options nowadays. I'm sure there will be the odd deals on the new ST in time.


The point i was getting across was, the Audi is a permium brand of car where as the Ford is not. So how can Ford place themselfs in direct competition with a premium brand of car with far better build quality. Yes, the Audi come's with less kit but you're paying for that better build qulailty of the car.

If Ford placed the ST-2 at £19,995 for an example - that's just £1,000 less than what the germans are offering.

I agree with Mark, It's a bold move by Ford, I don't see it selling all that well... I could be wrong but they're in the firing line of the big boys now. It's a bit of a daft question to ask on this forum but if you gave joe bloggs £20k and asked him which car he'd buy, an Audi A1 or Fiesta ST 90% of the time they would go for the Audi.

As well if you think of the Focus I posted up you're getting so much more bang for your money. 250bhp compared to the Fiesta's 190? Better build quality, bigger car, more gadgets etc.

I for one love my fast fords and love my fiesta to bits but I don't see myself buying a Fiesta ST. It just seems like such a waste of money <_<
