I wonder what colours they will have the st in? The alloys defo don't look like usual Ford styling, more Vauxhall or French

There are bits about it I like and bits I don't so it's 50/50 for me at the moment (not sure that colour would be my first choice either)

Those alloys are not to my taste and I think the new ST-line ones suit the car better and it's all abit unimaginative as a whole and they have even gone with a similar rear diffuser as the outgoing model 

On the plus side, the new 3 mode system (normal, sport and track) sounds good and if the car is more fuel efficient that's a bonus considering it's 197bhp and I think the seats look really nice

All that came out at 2pm and I've been busy since half 1, typical. Looking at it though I was very surprised to hear about 1.5 3 cylinder, and they can squeeze out 200-ish bhp from that? Pretty Impressive, I think the car itself looks amazing too.

I still think the back of it is pretty unpleasant to look at.

It's definitely a case of evolution, not revolution at the front and sides.  But it's like they lost the will to live at the back.

Still - glass half full - it may be a car that's a lot more handsome in the metal!

I may have worked it out... Is it me, or is there a sort of resemblance? Like a poor man's A-Class, with a hint of dull old people carrier thrown in...

Look at any recent Ford estate, that's where the back has come from.

A good move imo, Ford's saloons and estates have looked better than their hatches from the back for a while.

I like the back personally.

I like the back personally.

But it's not an estate. It's a hot hatch.  If I want an estate, I'll buy a Volvo.

It needs more flair.  Not more dog lugging wagon-ness about it.

I don't mean in terms of the ST, but the new Fiesta overall.

The back is very much like an estate.

In terms of the ST, I like the understated look, I'll see the inside more than anything. There is always tuning and parts companies to rice it up a bit.

Now it looks just like all the backs of the rest of the cars on the road.

The more I look at it the more I dislike it as well 

Maybe in another colour it might sway me, but those alloys......ugly!
