Ten Second Review
Want to know just how much fun it's possible to have in a ferociously fast small supermini? Then try one of these - Ford's Fiesta ST, now also available with five doors and in pokier 200PS ST200 guise. Whatever your choice of Fiesta ST variant, you'll find that it's been developed like a proper performance car - and drives like one, ready to paint a smile upon your face corner after corner. Of course, for not much more than the affordable prices Ford asks, you can buy more power. But after a drive in one of these, you probably won't want to.
Prior to this model, we never had a truly great sporting Ford Fiesta. Over the years, the Blue Oval brand has tried of course, building up a hot hatch legacy around this model that goes all the way back to the XR2 of 1981, with a history subsequently embellished by the more powerful RS1800 and RS Turbo shopping rockets that followed it. All though, were eclipsed by French hot hatch rivals, first a series of small Peugeot GTis, then in more recent years, the Renaultsport Clio. Today's Fiesta ST - this car - must once again take on ever more sophisticated versions of those same two rivals, along with a whole host of other similarly powered shopping rockets offering anything between 170 and 200bhp. It's going to have to be good. Fortunately, it's proved to be. For one thing, it's based on the best-handling supermini of its kind - which has to help. For another, Ford had an awful long time to get this sporting variant right. The seventh generation Fiesta it's based upon dates all the way back to 2008, but it was the Spring of 2013 before this, the first of the properly quick versions, hit the market. Designed by enthusiasts to be driven by enthusiasts, this fast Fiesta's poised, priced to sell and, with 182PS on tap, plenty quick enough, even in entry-level form. Recent updates include the availability of five-doors and the additon of a potent ST200 variant at the top of the range.
The engine used by the standard Fiesta ST model that most customer buy is a 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol unit developing 182PS. Which is impressive, but still not quite up to the 200PS level offered by both this car's closest two rivals, Peugeot's 208 GTi and the Renaultsport Clio 200. Or at least it is on paper. In practice, there's no difference at all thanks to the fact that this Fiesta's unit has an overboost function enabling it to deliver 200PS for 15 second acceleration bursts, just when you want it. That's why its 0-62mph sprint time of 6.9s is virtually identical to that of the two rivals I've just mentioned. The top speed of 137mph isn't too far shy either. So lack of power to properly compete at the top of the junior hot hatch sector isn't actually the problem I thought it might be coming into this test. Quite the opposite actually. Mountune, the people who engineered the Ford GT supercar, have developed a factory-approved engine pack that, for only a few hundred pounds extra, increases the output to 215PS and boosts torque, pulling power, from 290 to 320Nm, enough to shave nearly a second from the all-important 31-62mph 4th gear acceleration increment. Sticking in the standard range, there's a 200PS ST200 model at the top of the range that gets to 62mph in 6.7s en route to 143mph. Either way, power of course is nothing without control - which is exactly where this Fiesta really shines. The suspension features stiffer springs and has been lowered by 15mm. There's a brilliantly slick 6-speed gearbox. All-round disc brakes (a Fiesta first). And clever eTVC torque vectoring that helps you get the power down out of the corners. Plus a neat 'Sound Symposer' system that filters the most attractive noises from under the bonnet and delivers them into the cabin under hard acceleration, a stimulating soundtrack for a stimulating drive.
Design and Build
It's easy to go overboard and get all Max Power when it comes to a car of this kind, a temptation Ford has thankfully resisted here. This isn't the prettiest junior shopping rocket you can buy but the ST bodykit makes it playfully purposeful in demeanour. Things aren't quite so overt once you take a seat inside. Go for a base-trimmed version and you don't even get the two things that most set the cabin apart - the (rather hidden) steering column starter button and the lovely, grippy Recaro seats you get on the plusher ST2 model. Other ST-specific features are a little more subtle: there's alloy trim for the gearlever and pedals and ST badges on the steering wheel and front door scuff plates. Oh and the traction control function is given its own prominent position on the centre console. And rear seat space? Well, it's better than the claustrophobically rising beltline of this three-door-only design might lead you to expect. True, the heavily bolstered Recaros do slightly hinder your access into the back, but once you're there, the Fiesta surprises with headroom manageable even for a six-footer - though his or her legs will be crushed pretty snugly against the seat in front. There's also a 276-litre boot.
Market and Model
Looking for a junior hot hatch with around 180-200PS on tap? Then you'd expect to be looking at paying around £20,000 for it. That's what a rival Renaultsport Clio 200 or Peugeot 208 GTi would cost you. It's refreshing then, to find that you can get an entry-level version of this Fiesta ST on an £18,000 budget, though you'll have to progress up to the plusher trim levels if you're to have the option of a five-door bodystyle - this a £600 premium over the three-door model. The top ST200 200PS variant costs nearly £23,000, which looks rather ambitious, especially since you can get an affordably-priced Ford-approved Mountune engine upgrade to 215PS on the standard model for a relatively small premium. Standard kit across the range includes most of the things you might expect: 17-inch alloy wheels, a body styling kit with a chromed dual exhaust pipe, a Quickclear heated windscreen, front fog lights, a Thatcham Category 1 alarm, a leather-trimmed ST steering wheel and gearshift knob with red stitching, plus a decent quality stereo system incorporating a DAB digital radio. You also get a 'Sound Symposer' to emphasise the engine note and Ford's SYNC system for in-car connectivity and emergency assistance. Plus the 'MyKey' set-up which enables owners, when allowing others to drive the car, to set maximum speed and audio volume limits and ensure that safety features are not disabled. For an extra £1,000 over base rim, the plusher ST2 version adds halogen projector-style headlamps with LED daytime running lights, privacy glass, a power starter button, an upgraded Sony audio system and, probably most importantly, a lovely grippy set of Recaro sports seats. There's also an ST3 variant which for a £2,000 premium on top of the price of the base model includes sat nav, keyless entry, cruise control, auto headlamps and wipers, power folding mirrors and electronic climate control.
Cost of Ownership
The whole point of sporty Fiestas has been to offer a generous slice of fun coupled with modest running costs, a trend which continues with this generation ST. Even with 182PS on tap, you'll still see 47.9mpg on the combined cycle with emissions pegged at a very reasonable 138g/km. The ST200 manages 46.3mpg and 140g/km. The inherent efficiency of the EcoBoost 1.6-litre engine certainly helps this Fiesta's cause, as does Ford's recent design focus on reducing body weight despite an increase in size. There's also a shift indicator on the dash for more efficient gearchanges. Keep an eye on it and, for the times when you're not behaving like a hooligan, over 40mpg should be achievable on a regular basis. What else? Well, if you're thinking of doing a few track days - and so much fun is this car that it'd be a shame not to - remember to budget for extra wear on brake pads, discs and tyres. That only leaves depreciation. If you're a prospective customer, then you'll be glad to hear that Fiesta residual values are on the up as both new and used markets respond well to the increase in quality of the latest generation car. Expect to get around 50% of your initial purchase price back after three years - which is basically unheard of for a Fiesta. Finally, insurance: it's group 30E.

PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) a simple cost effective way to buy your new or nearly new car.
You choose the car, the deposit, how long you want the contract to run for and the mileage you intend to do. You will then receive a quote for fixed cost motoring for the length of the contract. At the end of the contract you have a choice to either buy the car outright for an agreed lump sum (the GFV or final balloon payment), or hand the vehicle back to the lender.
Hire Purchase allows you to take ownership of a car once all payments are made.
This is one of the most popular methods to buy a new vehicle. You pay an initial deposit, then pay off the balance in monthly payments over an agreed period of time, when the payments are complete the car is yours.
One of the main benefits with Hire Purchase is the ability to buy a high value vehicle on monthly payments.
Hire Purchase allows you to tailor your finance package as deposit, length of time and monthly payments are all flexible.
Personal contract hire is very similar to normal contract hire, but is exclusively for private individuals. This is one of the most common form of leasing.
With a personal contract hire agreement you take control of a car for a contractual period – usually referred to as the ‘lease period’. You will make fixed monthly payments for the duration of the contract – when the contract expires you will simply return the car and take out a new personal contract hire lease. PCH means you never have to worry about resale values of your car.
