Better looking and quicker than the Fiat 500 Abarth which is it's direct competition.

The title is a little misleading. It's 0-100kph in 6.9 seconds. That's 0-62mph in under seven seconds.

"Deutsche Scheisskopf" not a real German word, lol. Real German words but it does not mean anything except to Americans.

This car is stunning in person and the recaros are a slimmer fit than the focus st. Personally, I like the fiesta st seat fit, sick of the wide svtf seats. This color really pops.

Don't care, it's fun to say

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.

I think the wheel base is a few inches shorter. I think that was the only major dimension difference.

It probably comes with a usable back seat too which no Fiat 500 has, unless the 500's front seat occupants have their seats pulled forward and back seat occupants have legs 2 inches in diameter.

I was comparing the size of the Fiesta to my '07 ZX3 and it's very comparable inside, actually alot of the measurements are larger. I don't have my sheet with me but I beleive the legroom was slightly smaller in the front. The outside is definately slimmer and slightly less cargo room. An equal replacement if you want to stay small.
