Top 10 Cars of the 2011 LA Auto Show

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.

    Honestly the Subaru BRZ should have been #1…. the Mustang is nothing special.

    Oh Rob and Susan, such fools. You have shown everyone how little you know. The new Fords are nothing like the Fords of 5 years ago. What I can say as a Canadian I hated to see my tax dollars go to bailout north american auto makers and the only reason my money went that way is because of people like you who are fool enough to think North America is only able to build cars like a 1977 mustang or perhaps a Pontiac sunfire. Before you badmouth any car or car manufacturer you must know them. Go drive a NEW Ford, see ho great they are and then, if you can’t see how truly awsome they are, badmouth them. I predict by your coments that I am more american then you are.
