2017 Ford Fiesta ST vs Ford Focus ST: How Big Is The Gap

By  | 

The Ford Focus ST might be carrying a bigger price tag but that is not the biggest difference between the two.

Both the Ford Fiesta ST and the Ford Focus ST are both fun models to drive in but with what Ford has to offer on the inside of the Ford Focus ST, some people are saying that the Ford Fiesta ST is not worth getting at all.

First, there is the performance. The Ford Fiesta ST will be powered by a 1.6-liter engine that will be offering about 197hp. The Fiesta ST will return about 23mpg in the city and 33mpg on the highway.

The Ford Focus ST, on the other hand, will be coming in with a 2.0 liter 4 cylinder engine that will be offering about 252hp. The vehicle will return about 22mpg in the city and 31mpg on the highway.

Then there is the interior. Compared to the Focus ST, the Fiesta ST interior feels empty and cheap. Those that did check out the interior will notice how plasticky the Fiesta ST is compared to the Focus ST.
