Amelia reviews the latest 2021 Ford Fiesta ST. The little pocket rocket from Ford packs the highest level of kit ever, but that is just one of its advantages.

The latest Fiest is now one of the last non-SUV or UTE models from Ford in a time when Ford is axing most of the non SUV models in its line up.

The Fiesta ST engine has only three cylinders. It’s a 1.5 EcoBoost with both direct and port injection and a turbocharger and it produces 147 kW and 290 Nm of torque – more than enough for loads of fun in a car of this size. This Ford Hot Hatch comes only with a manual transmission and it officially consumes 6.3 L per 100 km.
