Not exactly. Some Abarths have been timed 0-60 m.p.h between 6.4 to 6.9 seconds so time wise it is comparable to the Abarth.

I was impressed with the seats. I'm a lean 6' and found the seats to be a great fit for me.

So I just showed my wife pictures of the Fiesta ST in molten orange, she approves! Really to me it seems like a "new" Focus SVT, just slightly smaller with more power I'd love to be able to buy an SVT with 0 miles, and this is basically as close as it gets.
The paint looks nicer in person too, has a real nice depth to the paint.

The backseats had pretty similar leg room to that of my zx3. The space seem slightly smaller overall back there but that might be either the ceiling or the hatch area being slight shorter/smaller?

The 6.9 second 0-62 mph spec is for the European Fiesta ST, which has less power than the 197 hp one we get. I would expect the 0-60 time to be around a half second quicker than that. (Those 2 mph make a difference!)

So, about 6.5 to 60, like an 8th gen Civic SI. That's not bad.

Still a bit slow but I wonder how it will respond to mods since the weigth issue isn't an issue.

How can people call 0-60 in 6.5 slow? The regular Fiesta does it in like 9 seconds...

what does a zx3 do 0-60 in, around 8-9? and the svt focus would be in the 7s?

I'd call a 0-60 in 6.5 fairly quick
