I have to admit that I have a love of speed when I drive and even though I control my urge to race down the road, I can’t help but fall in love with a vehicle that has a lot of zip. So when Ford Canada recently gave me the chance to test drive the 2015 Ford Fiesta ST, it was love at first sight. The ST model of this little hatchback comes in standard only and boasts 197 horsepower, aluminum interior detailing and an ST-unique suspension. It’s virtually impossible not to have fun behind the wheel of this vehicle.
It had been years since I’d last driven a standard vehicle and I have to admit that I’d forgotten how much fun it was, especially in a sporty little car like this one. The Fiesta is built very compact, which means that it’s great on gas and perfect as a commuter car. Even so, it had a surprisingly roomy back hatch that could easily have held all the groceries from one of our family’s monthly stocking-up grocery trips.
