Awesome camera angles.


Wonder what Steve McQueen would have said about this.

Nice video kind of sad that they do not offer the three door Fiesta ST in the USA it might be tempting enough to make me trade my Fit.

Big budget sponsors, Ken Block, lots of cameras and a good videographer/editor. :-)

MPG ratings if these numbers hold up pretty good.

Ford says 2014 Fiesta ST returns 26 mpg city / 35 mpg highway



29 mpg combined

The Blue Oval company has released fuel economy figures for the U.S.-spec 2014 Fiesta ST.
Following the car's debut towards the end of last year at L.A. Auto Show, Ford has published fuel economy numbers for the 2014 U.S.-spec Fiesta ST based on in-house testing. The hot hatchback can return 26 mpg city / 35 mpg highway / 29 mpg in the combined cycle figures which have been sent to EPA for a check-up.
The Fiesta ST is sold in the United States only as a five-door model and with a six-speed manual transmission. Power comes from a 4-cylinder, 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine generating 197 bhp (147 kW) and 290 Nm (214 lb-ft) of torque.
It sits on 17-inch alloy wheels and comes with additional goodies such as a high-mounted spoiler, different front grille + chin spoiler, updated rear diffuser and a dual exhaust setup. It's also 15mm lower than the standard Fiesta and benefits from various suspension tweaks.

Ford Focus ST Wagon would be nice in the USA. So much for world wide Ford.

Not just Ford. Same goes with other manufacturers... goes both ways (or not) to and from the US.

CAFE rules killed the station wagons and compact pick ups in the USA. No reason for manufacturer to import or sale here.

How CAFE Killed Compact Trucks And Station Wagons | The Truth About Cars

It is funny manufacturers offer two door hatchbacks else where and claim there is no market here yet driving my Fit for 25 straight hours yesterday to Dallas I saw a lot of the Fiat on the roads. Exceptions Fiat 500, GTI, Smart, IQ.
