Not sure if this has been covered, but the 2014 Fiesta ST finished in third place overall in Road & Tracks "Performance Car of The Year", not bad considering the dizzyingly list of competing cars... It finished behind the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG "Black Series" and the new C7 Corvette Sting-Ray (the winner). Not a bad accolade for the new Fiesta ST. It appears that most if not all the auto mag journalists LOVE these little cars. It's a great article, give it a read.
