Looking around the car sites, i've noticed they have all reviewed the new Fiesta ST. Take a read and make up your own mind as to what you think.

All reviews are from UK based websites, so it should be a good idea what it's like on our roads. Have to say, from reading the above reviews, i am very tempted to buy one!

I'd have gone for one, but I need the diesel economy for now and already have a track-ready car >.<

 

A replica won't be too difficult though I suppose.

There's a review in Top Gear magazine saying your betting off getting the 1.0 ecoboost as the mpg difference is minimal and its a nicer engine and car to drive.
Im thinking about an ST, ive already had an insurance quote and its only an extra £80 and mpg is the same as metal I have now as is the road tax.

Minimal if you really don't use it though, as soon as the foot goes down the mpg will plummet; I can get 50 all day long with planting it; and not much slower if honest with a mod or two.

That's incorrect, I've got the Top Gear Magazine with the ST in. That statement is comparing the 1.0 ecoboost to the 1.5 diesel.

Apologies. I had a read of the ST reviews and it sounds to me as if its going to be an absoulute belter of a car. My Zetec S already makes me smile on our country roads so I can only imagine this will be much better.

 

For me now it is a case of what it looks like in white as believe it or not, I'm still not too sure on that front grill. I'm also quite attached to my current car!
