Ford Fiesta ST Mk7 review (2013-2017) – a superb, if short lived supermini hot hatch - Design
The ST was evo’s favourite junior hot hatch, hopefully the new one will be just as fun.
The Mk7 Fiesta shape has always been attractively proportioned. The 2011 facelift added a larger front grille and more predatory headlight treatment, which work very well alongside the ST’s deeper bumpers, rear spoiler and 17-inch alloy wheels.
To our eyes it’s one of the best-looking small hot hatches currently on sale. Blue bodywork is traditional for fast Fords, but the optional Spirit Blue metallic paintwork was a £495extra.
