The Ford Fiesta ST is often described as one fun vehicle to drive around in. If it is really that great, is there any reason why people would ignore it and go for the slightly more expensive Ford Focus ST model?
As in most situation, you usually get what you pay for. While there is no denying that the Ford Fiesta ST is one fun model to drive around in, it is still not a Focus ST.
The Ford Fiesta ST will be running on a 197hp 1.6 liter 4 Cylinder engine that will return about 23mpg in the city and 33mpg on the highway. The Focus ST, on the other hand, will run on a 252hp 2.0 liter 4 cylinder engine that will return about 22mpg in the city and 31mpg on the highway.
Those that tested out both models are saying that it is pretty clear which is the better model. In terms of driving experience, both models are great but some consumers are saying that the cheap and flimsy interior of the Ford Fiesta ST has put them off the vehicle.
Would you choose the Fiesta ST over the Focus ST?
