The all-new Ford Fiesta ST is no stranger to awards, but it's now earned the ultimate accolade, being named the 'Top Gear Magazine Car of the Year 2013'.
According to Top Gear Magazine, the Fiesta ST was a unanimous choice "a car that invigorates, excites and rekindles some of the love you thought you'd lost for the simple stuff. A car that puts a smile on your face each and every day. It's the most enjoyable car of 2013."
The Fiesta ST does all of the things that a hot hatch should, which is why Top Gear Magazine have also crowned it the 'Hot Hatch of the Year 2013'. They state "The difference with the Ford is that it does it for £16,995. Often this would mean it lacks something the others have, but no. It looks cracking. The chassis is as lovingly engineered as a McLaren's. It grips and goes better than the others and — as far as we can see — there is no catch. The dealers could charge a few grand more, and it'd still feel like a good deal but they don't, and good on them. Power to the People."
The Fiesta ST offers performance-tuned steering, suspension, brakes, Recaro sports seats and enhanced Torque Vectoring Control, as well as a host of other Ford technology including Ford MyKey and Ford SYNC with Emergency Assistance.
At TC Harrison Ford Burton Upon Trent, we also offer the official Mountune upgrade for the new Fiesta ST, which increases the maximum power available to 215 PS, enabling acceleration of 0-62 mph in 6.7 seconds, compared with 6.9 seconds on the factory model – that's faster than a £35,865 Mercedes-Benz SLK 200 AMG Sport 7G-Tronic Plus.
The Mountune upgrade, which does not effect the base warranty from Ford, also boosts the peak Fiesta ST torque to 320 Nm, which improves 31-62 mph acceleration in fourth gear by 0.7 seconds, to 5.7 seconds.
