Zetec S 1.0 Vs Fiesta St-2

08 September 2013 - 01:08 PM

So, I like both cars but this is really killing me deciding between them, I just know with petrol prices going up I could either love or hate the ST-2. I like cruising at speeds of around 70-80 on the motorway, therefore whatever would allow me to do that cheaper wins the race for sure, I love being able to shoot past people if need be without waiting for the car to gain power. I really do like both cars but I'm finding it so difficult to decide.


Few questions to those with either:

Do you regret getting the ST2/ZS?

What's your MPG like and what speed do you drive at on A roads etc? (Please specify ZS or ST)

Was your money well spent?

How much does it cost to fill your car up all the way? (Please specify)

Is keyless entry worth the money as an extra on the ZS, and is it better than using a key on the ST-2?



I've got a few more days to decide which car I'd like to get and I have benefits of each really
Here's the basics of what I'm considering:
Zetec S
  • Looks very nice
  • Interior is semi-decent
  • GREAT on petrol
  • £618 insurance (17y/o)
  • £0 road tax
  • 125bhp in a 1.0, not sure if that's good or bad because of the engine size but ecoboost would be good on petrol.
  • Looks amazing in blue
  • Very nice interior
  • Decent-ish MPG (been told around 31 with caning)
  • Decent on insurance £1,600 (17y/o)
  • 185bhp will be beastly.
Here's the differences:
Zetec S
Really, money isn't the issue, however it's sort of depending on MPG right now, I've been told figures of just below 40 for caning the ZS 1.0, cruising at about 70/80. However I've been told using the turbo in the ST-2 will get you around 31mpg.
There's around a £2,500-3,000 difference between the two models I want (with the extra's) and I know for a fact an ST will hold its value better than the ZS will...
Please help me here, my mind is going in/out on deciding lol.

Does anyone here have an ST-2 or the ST-1 and get decent MPG? I mean around 35+?

Help Me Pick A Colour/trim?

Currently have a white car and it's annoying to clean for sure, and I've decided on the ST-2, here's my options:


Blue with red seats

Blue with grey seats (this isn't my favourite)

White with red seats (just annoying to clean)


But will blue and red go?


Bare in mind callipers are red, ambient lights are red etc... what do you guys think?


went with blue/grey. hopefully it looks great!

Ordered A 1.0 Zetec S Ecoboost, Few Questions...

05 September 2013 - 11:06 PM

Does keyless entry mean that it's push button start? *hopefully*

And secondly: what MPG do you get? Would I be able to cruise at speeds of 70-80 and still maintain a high MPG? Atm I have to go 50 in my 1.25 to save petrol, v annoying.


I got the moondust silver one, only ever seen one on the roads near me and it was beautiful.


Random but yeah...
