9. Ford Fiesta ST Concept
Staying small, but speeding up the pace considerably is the Ford Fiesta ST concept. Powered by the brand’s 1.6-liter EcoBoost turbocharged 4-cylinder engine it makes a whopping 180-hp with 177 b-ft of torque. Of course it also gets an aero kit inspired by the brand’s WRC rally cars, along with 17-inch wheels and a lowered suspension.
Ford has made it very clear that it is pursuing a global approach to its vehicles and after showing first a 3-door Fiesta ST concept at the Frankfurt Auto Show and now this 5-door model based on our version of the Fiesta, it’s all but certain that the Fiesta ST will join Ford’s performance lineup, next to its big brother the Focus ST.
