Here we have the second generation of Ford Fiesta ST, the first time in model’s history with a turbocharged engine. Initially, this Fiesta ST had a 3-door body style, but also got a 5-door variant in late 2016. The car is characterised by very good dynamics and it is very fun to drive, even though is not the fastest or the most powerful B-segment hot hatch. The car featured here has a very low mileage, less than 5,000 km on the clock.
