Watch my latest review to find out how it drives, what I make of the updating styling, along with any other bits that you need to know!

It’s not fake noise Matt!! Know your facts before dissing a car! It’s actual exhaust noise, real time, just boosted through the speakers because the car is so well insulated! Jeeezzzzz!!!!

Such an overpriced car. 2020 and the want £25k for an ST3 without options. Madness in comparison to what you can get for that or just a little bit more money. Same power as a mk7 so you are paying for the interior changes

Damn I love the steering wheel! Got the mk3 focus st which basically has the same (only with different buttons) and it feels and looks great imo.

The stearing is very responsive on Ford cars. May be mat is used to such driving dynamics.

I wonder if the exhaust is real? I think it requires the tongue of Truth

Steering at 8.41, owned an st for 14months never had a problem, the steering is amazing, chuck it into a corner and it pulls around great.

I think that polo gt is overrated.. In order to do the same things with St they had put a 2000cc engine..

I like the first design. The seat comfort is a bit concerning. Would be great to see an all-electric version just for the acceleration.

Its a chavmobile is the only way I see a Ford Fiesta and Focus ST are poor mans sports vehicles for chavs in their 20's, Welsh in specific love them, so many die in them too because they have no driving capabilities the type of people who drive these cheap chavmobiles.

I have a one of these and its absolutely brilliant as an everyday drive love it so comfy brilliant car cant quite understand what hes going on about the steering but each to their own brilliant car test drove the polo and its my own opinion the fiesta is far more fun and way better value for the money

you are like literally the only reviewer badmouthing the new fiesta st and its a shame cause it is considered one of the best choices in its category you can stick to your snobish vw and paying a bunch of extra money for no reason oh and also cars like the st are really good for countries like greece cause you pay much less taxes and you can have a turbo engine car since you pay by the liters of the engine and nto by horsepower of the car and the vw with the 2liter engine is quite costy so yeah st for the win worth every penny!!!

I don't like the leather on the steering wheel.

Oh god what a bitch…

Στα αρχιδια μας ρε παλιο μαλακα (I just told something very nasty for you in other language).

Couldn't you find anything more substantial to judge?

You've been knagging like an old lady that wants to get laid but doesn't for ford's steering wheels for years!

By the way you yourself put it to the lady's hand cream test…
