Fiesta ST is "Bang-On Right" According to Top Gear's Richard Hammond

The Ford Fiesta ST is a spunky and enthusiastic addition to the re-emerging field of fun hot hatches in North America.

Why a hot hatchback? They give you all the thrill of a sports coupe, but with a considerably lower price tag, better fuel economy, and better utility, thanks to having at least two doors and a hatch.

Which hot hatch is the hottest? Well, Richard Hammond thinks the Fiesta ST is scorching.

The Fiesta makes its grand entrance about 4:30 minutes in to the video. We don't mind if you skip ahead, the Renault and Peugeot aren't available on this side of the Atlantic anyhow. Not that it matters-- the American-bred Fiesta beats the European competition handily.

Do you see a sporty little fun-to-drive hatchback in your future? Contact Cam Clark Ford in Airdrie, and we'll happily import anything that isn't already in our inventory.
