Ford Fiesta ST Named Compact Car of the Year by Autobytel

Ford Fiesta ST

Ford Fiesta ST Autobytel has selected the Ford Fiesta ST as its 2014 Compact Car of the Year, as a “testament to how sporty and fun the compact car segment has become and how far it has moved from the days of econoboxes.”

The reasons the Ford Fiesta ST made it to the top of the list are numerous but simple: it’s easy to park and fill up, it’s affordable, and it packs a hefty amount of horsepower. Despite only sporting a tiny 1.6-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, the performance-tuned Fiesta still manages to achieve 197 horsepower and 202 pound-feet of torque—which means that even with all that power, it’ll still do almost 30 miles per gallon the highway. It’s the perfect combination of fun and economy, especially for the commuters at whom the vehicle is targeted.

So if you’re one of those commuter looking for a small car that delivers affordability, performance, and efficiency in a single package, just come by Shults Ford of Wexford and get your hands on a Ford Fiesta ST.
