24 beautiful 2015 Ford Fiesta ST Track Day Review Sandown Raceway

well Here We Are Again At Sandown Race Way For Another Car Across Weekend Warrior Track Test And While We've Looked At Turbocharged Hatchbacks Before Not Have Been Quite As Affordable As This We've Already Track Tested The Kia Pro Cee'd GT Ford Focus ST And Renault Clio RS, But Today We've Brought Along A Car That's Been Winning Fans Worldwide Ever Since Launching In 2013 The Ford Fiesta ST Before We Hit The Track Though Let's Take A Closer Look At This Little German Built Pocket Rocket Starting At Twenty-five Thousand Nine Ninety The Fiesta ST Can Be Had For Little More Than A Suzuki Swift Sport And A Decent Work Less Than The Renault Clio RS And Brand New Volkswagen Polo GTI Strictly Available In Australia With Three Doors And A Six-speed Manual Transmission Under The Bonnet Sits A Turbocharged 1.6 Liter Four-cylinder Churning Out 134 Kilowatts And 240 Newton Meters Both Those Figures Can Be Up To However Thanks To An Overboost Function Standard You Get Fog Lights LED Daytime Running Lights 17-inch Alloy Wheels And Esti Badges Right-oh Time Together The Sportiest Standard Fiesta Money Can Buy The St Claims The Nought To A Hundredth Time Of 6.9 Seconds And A Top Speed Of 220 Kilometers An Hour And That's Good That's Quite Good What's Less Good Is The Soon As You Get In The Little Guy You Noticed That It's Got The Same Problem As Its St Bigger Brother The Focus Where The Headrest Is Actually Pushing The Helmet Forward As Soon As You Get In Without A Lid On It's Not Really A Problem, But, If You Come To Do A Track Down You Need To Wear A Helmet It's Definitely A Bit Of A Nuisance On The Plus Side These Cloth Recaro Bucket Seats Are Fantastic They Are Much Better Than The Partial Leather Items In The Focus ST Now Very Supportive Very Well Pocketed They Are Excellent At Doing A Very Good Job Of Getting All The Power To The Ground Are These Bridgestone Potenza Tires And. So, Far In These Early Laps These Brakes - Are Doing An Excellent Job Of Just Keeping A Little Guy Composed And Very Controlled And The Esti Wheel Spins Also Managed With The Help Of A Torque Vectoring System And Basically It Breaks The Inside Wheel To Effectively Reduce Or Limit Under Steering Wheel Spin.

So, Far It's Doing A Pretty Good Job. I'd Say Now. I Have No Doubt That You Can Hear The Awesome Noise The Turbocharged Motor Is Making In This Fiesta ST Sounds Really Good From The Inside It's A Pokey Little Unit It's Got Good Pulling Power From Down Low Revs Out Nice And Smooth It's A Great Little Engine The Steering Is Excellent Too On This Car The Beauty Of The Esti Is While A Lot Of People Say That Sandown Raceway And Tracks Like It A Best Suited For Big Horsepower High Speed Cars It's Not Actually The Case The Fiesta ST Weighs Less Than 1,200 Kilograms And Around Here It's Very Nimble And Very Agile And Despite Having A Solid Torsion Beam Rear Axle The Rear End Is Actually Very Well Behaved Even, If There's High Speed Corners The Car Has Really Good Balance This Gearbox Too Is Another Part Of A Car That's Right Up There With Where Some Of The Best Of Them Goes Into Gear Nicely The Clutch Is Light, But There's A Bit Of Feedback There As Well It's Definitely Another Strong Suit In The Car Well The Clouds Are Moving In And The Rain Is Coming Up Now, But It Doesn't Matter This Car Is Still Fun And When It Comes To It For Under Twenty Six Thousand Dollars It Really Is A Fun And Entertaining Car And There's Some Serious Value To Be Had Here A Barrel Of Laughs On The Road And A Dead-set Small Machine Out There On Track It's Not Hard To See Why The Ford Fiesta ST Has Become Such A Fan Favorite.
