Ford really has come a long way since the One Ford strategy came along. Not only are the cars better looking, but they handle as well and equipment levels have crept steadily upwards (prices as well though).

Torque steer really wasn't an issue with the Focus ST, so the Fiesta ST having less power won't really have any at all.
