Talking Fiesta ST came in 6th out of 10 in M/T's Best drivers car

Just got the new Nov edition of M/T & jumped right to the best 10 drivers car & see that the Fist took 6th place. That's awesome.

Yeah there seems to be a lot more love for the Fist over the Fost just from reading articles and youtube videos from the major car magazines, and the more popular youtube car review channels

Nice, if you need a couple fun daily computers for oneself and significant other/wife, can't complain about that combo. But If i was to have two cars just for myself, i would go for something RWD and V8 as the weekend car.

I was happy to see the Fist getting more love in that motortrend article than the GTI, being a general ford fan over VAG. I will admit it's hard to beat the fit/finish of the GTI.

One of those two cars fost/fist will likely be in my garage in 5-10 yrs once i can get it used. Also hoping either the FoSTD or FoRS make it to the US.

^^^I'm w/ you on that= v/8 rwd= I'd go for a Z-28!!!

^^^ Yea fit & finish it hard to beat on a gti.

^^^ Yea a RS would really help Ford.

How would a limited run vehicle like the RS help Ford in any way? You're talking about a vehicle that makes up less than .1% of total Focus sales.

Seems the Fiesta is easier to get to its limits and is more fun because of that. Of course, not everyone can deal with such a small car for daily driver duties. Its win win in my book between FiST and FoST. Reading these reviews and love for the Feista makes me want to go drive one
