2015 Ford Fiesta ST – The Go-Kart on Steroids. Yes, It’s Cliché

2015 Ford Fiesta ST

And she’ll have fun, fun, fun till her daddy takes the ST away. Isn’t that how the song goes? If not, I am taking the liberty to adapt it because the 2015 Ford Fiesta ST totally deserves it. Don’t tell the Beach Boys. 

When I said I was picking up that little red 2015 Ford Fiesta ST parked right there, everyone had the same reaction: “Oh you’re going to have so much fun.” Either that or “I haven’t driven it yet.” I was pretty confident I was in for a treat because that’s what I enjoy driving the most: agile, nervous, little cars. Plus, I hadn’t touched a manual transmission in over a month, since I had left my own personal car behind to take on my role as a journalist with the difficult, difficult task of testing a different car every week. Someone’s got to do the dirty work. And after a series of automatic transmissions and CVTs, going back to a three-pedal setup felt like I was a junkie getting a free pass to her chemically-induced nirvana. Or should I say mechanically-induced.
