Regular Car Reviews: 2014 Ford Fiesta ST

Published on Dec 29, 2014 573,688 views

Tiny car. Tiny turbo. Loads of fun. One way ticket. Solid alibi. Reciprocating saw. Multiple states. Cash only. Ek praat Afrikaans vandag. Ek kan wegsteek op die Kaap. Verenigde State van Amerika geld koop baie Volkswagens. Kom ons kuier. Waar is die biblioteek? Die pen is in my hand. Die boek. Die boek! Die boek. Hoeveel rand sal dit neem vir gereelde motor resensies aan ZA kom?

Here is the link to the ruling report: http://www.nhtsa.gov/cars/rules/rulin...

    Gara Von Hoiwkenzoiber 4 года назад Even though Ford is an American company, it took Ford UK to show you how to make a small practical fun car. :v
  • Diego Ruiz
    Diego Ruiz 4 года назад Most of the Ford UK cars are better than the Ford USA cars · Mondeo (UK) vs Fusion (USA) = Mondeo · Transit (UK) vs Econoline (USA) = Transit, to the point they're killing the Econoline by 2015 · Ranger (UK) vs F150 (USA) = Ranger can be good when far from roads, F150 can't · Galaxy (UK) vs all-minivans-ever (USA) = Galaxy · Kuga (UK) vs all-small-SUVs-ever (USA) = Kuga It's quite stupid how the non-native division of a brand can be so much better than the original brand!

  • Diego Ruiz
    Diego Ruiz 4 года назад @WasstschoBasstscho I'm talking about Ford Europe in general, not just Ford UK
  • awesomeologyism
    awesomeologyism 4 года назад (изменено) @Diego Ruiz  In all fairness, we don't use pickups as much for off-roading as we do for actual work. That's why it doesn't have anything less than a V6 And the Econoline is a full-size van, I don't think you can really compare that to the Transit. The Econoline held damn-near 80% of the American Full-size van market when they canceled it. Ford canceled it because they were consolidating their vehicle manufacturing, and the US was the only real market that it sold to. And please, The Cherokee XJ is the best Compact SUV
  • Diego Ruiz
    Diego Ruiz 4 года назад @awesomeologyism A Transit can move the same weight as a F150 and it uses 4 cylinders most of the time, sometimes with as little as 115hp and it can move over 8000lbs (vehicle+cargo)
  • TwoWheelJockey
    TwoWheelJockey 4 года назад @Diego Ruiz Our tow ratings don't include the weight of the vehicle. So if they say it can tow 8,000 pounds it can tow 8,000 plus the weight of the vehicle.
  • petey2crazy
    petey2crazy 4 года назад @Gara Von Hoiwkenzoiber The US did have the Merkur XR4Ti, which was kinda like a Sierra XR4i, except different body and powertrain. 
  • paul williams
    paul williams 4 года назад @Diego Ruiz It absolutely cannot tow/haul anywhere near the amount of an F150, you're on some other shit.
  • Shane Smith
    Shane Smith 4 года назад @Diego Ruiz I don't see your point honestly, are you trying to claim that European manufacturers are superior due to a few cars that are better in the general opinion? 
  • Leslie48
    Leslie48 4 года назад @awesomeologyism I think you may be confusing the Ford Transit with the Ford Transit Connect.  The Transit in the UK is a full-sized van, the Transit-Connect is that weird micro-van that just recently came available in the US.
  • awesomeologyism
    awesomeologyism 4 года назад @Leslie48 I think you're right My mistake. I haven't seen any of the transits around here. All I see is the E-150 through E-450 fleet vans.

  • awesomeologyism
    awesomeologyism 4 года назад @Gara Von Hoiwkenzoiber We don't do many small cars at all.
  • awesomeologyism
    awesomeologyism 4 года назад @Diego Ruiz "Most of the Ford UK cars are better than the Ford USA cars" You were definitely speaking specifically about Ford UK 
  • Diego Ruiz
    Diego Ruiz 4 года назад @Leslie48 We also have the Tran-Connect here in Europe and it's quite stupid. The true Transit is about to wipe-out the American Econoline for life. Even FORD admits one of America's big things about commercial vehicles, the panel van, is worse than the European model
  • Diego Ruiz
    Diego Ruiz 4 года назад @Shane Smith They're not worse, just less effective than they should be and we all know it already A Fusion is long and heavy, the Mondeo does the same for less. A Transit can get a high roof without losing much stability; also, FORD is killing the E-series because even they think the Transit is the way to go. A Ranger can pull too but it's lighter and better when offroad. Should I continue?
  • awesomeologyism
    awesomeologyism 4 года назад (изменено) @Diego Ruiz A panel van is just a sub-specialty of vans. They're usually based on passenger vehicles w/o rear side windows (hence the "Panel"). The Transit and Econoline are neither of these. But there's nothing wrong with the Econoline, and they're still selling quite well, and ford will still be manufacturing the chassis until 2020. Ford is doing away with them because they're planning on thinning out the number of different vehicles that they manufacture. The Transit is more prevalent worldwide, hence they're doing away with the econoline. And the Fusion and Mondeo have near the same curb weight. The Ranger is lighter and better offroad, because it was made to go offroad. The F-150 isn't offroad oriented, it's work oriented. And a Maxed out ranger can only tow as much as the 3.5L NA V6
  • LOLKINGBABY
    LOLKINGBABY 4 года назад @Push Back WTF are you smoking?
  • Leslie48
    Leslie48 4 года назад @Diego Ruiz To be fair there are different regulations to meet in the US vs. the UK, these and personal tastes in the US mean that for every small business owner who would get a panel-van if they operated in the UK, they'd get a Pickup truck if they operated in the US... for the most part.
  • Diego Ruiz
    Diego Ruiz 4 года назад @Leslie48 You can't deny the combination of high roof and stability is better in the Transit than in the E-series. I have a driving license since May this year and I have always driven a 2005 Ford Transit T350 with the high roof and a 115hp diesel engine due to my work It is a great vehicle, specially considering that I have a cargo of 11x6ft and that I can move up to 8000lbs with so much ease. I am a novice, all my practice and tests were with a 2008 Honda Civic, and the Transit is both easy to drive considering its size (almost 19ft long!) and great to move stuff
  • Leslie48
    Leslie48 4 года назад @Diego Ruiz I can't deny the roof and stability thingy is better in the Transit than the E-series BECAUSE I'VE NEVER DRIVEN EITHER.  Nobody has an E-series, they all have F-150s or F-250s... because that's how we do.

  • sdlausen
    sdlausen 4 года назад Its because in EU, people are willing to pay a bit more for quality. Here in the USA, the cheaper something is, the more people will buy it. In the US, people would rather buy a can of soda that is $.10c over one that is $.20c more and healthier -- hypothetically speaking. Same analogy goes for cars her in the USA. Look at what VW did with the American Jetta, they cheapened the shit out of it reducing it's price and sales are WAY up. Americans wouldn't pay for an expensive Euro hatch back in the day. NOW that's changing -- thankfully. 
  • P J

    P J 4 года назад (изменено) @Diego Ruiz And by the way the Fseries pickups out sell everything here. 2015 They will be all aluminum. UK does not even produce such models like the Flex, Edge, Explorer, Taurus SHO, etc. heck UK didnt even get the mustang till now. You are very biased as to what you have not driven.
  • Diego Ruiz
    Diego Ruiz 4 года назад @Patrick Connolly Who the fuck would want a Explorer? Or the Edge? Or the Flex? They're all pieces of shit and weight more than a 2-story house
  • Browningate
    Browningate 4 года назад @Diego Ruiz Flex is a wagon, so I would think it would appeal to foreign countries quite a lot actually.
  • Diego Ruiz
    Diego Ruiz 4 года назад (изменено) @Channel 2012 FUCK NO! It is too long, wide and heavy. Only like 15 people in the whole Europe would consider buying it (I do not think someone would buy it!)

  • Diego Ruiz
    Diego Ruiz 4 года назад @Patrick Connolly What? Most our cars are pretty rounded. You're the land of the 90º angle! Even our cheaper cars (like the Renault-derived Dacias) are quite damn reliable. Yeah, they're slow and the equipment is poor but you can get a car for $8000 and drive it for 150k miles without much problem at all!
  • P J
    P J 4 года назад @Diego Ruiz  Because we can! Our fuel is relatively cheap compared to you. Id never buy an 8000 dollar new car no thanks you get what you pay for.......
  • Browningate
    Browningate 4 года назад @Diego Ruiz It's a seven-seater with room in the back, so it's actually a lot like a van. Maybe you don't like it, but I'm sure families appreciate it, even if it is underpowered and front wheel drive.
  • Diego Ruiz
    Diego Ruiz 4 года назад @Channel 2012 We have lots of those in Europe and they look much nicer. Also, nobody wants that much from a car over here. With 7 seats you're overdoing it most of the time. Do you think you have MPVs? Europe has the most of any automotive area · Ford Galaxy · Volkswagen Sharan/SEAT Alhambra · Peugeot 808/Citröen C8/Lancia Phedra · Chrysler Voyager · Honda Odyssey · Kia Carnival · Renault Espace · Toyota Previa · Hyundai H1 · Mitsubishi Grandis And I might be missing some...
  • P J
    P J 4 года назад @Diego Ruiz MPV's are called mini vans here and we have them too as well..... but the fact that no one wants them here is why we have SUV's
  • Browningate
    Browningate 4 года назад @Diego Ruiz So you're saying you don't like Flex because of how it looks? It actually looks nicer than most vans.
  • MananaMan
    MananaMan 4 года назад @Diego Ruiz You're wrong about the Fusion and the F150 completely. Also the galaxy was a joint effort so it's american. Pontiac Vibe beats the kuga hands down. ALSO the fiesta was developed by an american

  • MananaMan
    MananaMan 4 года назад @Push Back Right, but the original design which lasted for like 30 years was made by amuricans. The new model that was in production for 2 years was made in Australia.
  • P J
    P J 4 года назад @pks7777777 Actually the old Pontiac GTO moniker was was built for only 10 years 1964 to 1974. We are referring to the Australian built one 2004 to 2006....which was a huge flop.
  • Push Back
    Push Back 4 года назад @pks7777777 The American built GTO was built by Pontiac from 1964 to 1974. Ten years. The Australian built GTO was built from 2004 - 2006. Three (model) years.

    awesomeologyism 4 года назад (изменено) @Diego Ruiz The "Land of the 90º Angle" Unless you're thinking of vehicles from the 1980s, this only applies to our V8s And the comparison for the Mondeo and Fusion is for the American Fusion, not the MPV Fusion. The American Fusion is just a Mondeo with a different name.

  • awesomeologyism

  • DrClaw77
    DrClaw77 4 года назад (изменено) @Diego Ruiz not to mention the Kuga basically usurped the Escape in the States. Thankfully. I know a lot of fellow Americans were fond of its evolving "truck-like" looks, but the Kuga is much more honest as to what a crossover (and its audience) is. I also think Ford needs to bring the Ranger to the States. That and bring back the Bronco.
  • Diego Ruiz
    Diego Ruiz 4 года назад @DrClaw77 Ehhh... A Ranger is just a "new-age Bronco". Both are compact pick-up trucks based on being good at going offroad instead of just pulling
  • awesomeologyism
    awesomeologyism 4 года назад (изменено) @Diego Ruiz The Ford Bronco was a full-size, not a compact

I had ford focus st, ford focus 1.8 16v ghia full packet, Ford mustang v6 192hp i can tell you all cars are good but best was mustang. U can not compare vs usa cars. Ford usa is more reliable than europe. Usa car can go easy 200.000 miles to 300.000 miles, europe ford, very hard to get those miles, it will allways break before to get those miles. And ford ranger is not ford f150 totaly diferent cars. ANd i am from europe. And focus fiesta was from germany, mustang from canada.

  • benanderson89
    benanderson89 3 года назад +Patrick Connolly The latest generation Fusion/Mondeo are not exactly the same. The USA gets a Sedan. Europe gets a Hatchback and Wagon instead, and Europe gets different suspension. Same thing with the S550 Mustang. Europe gets better dampening and stiffer springs with the security, premium and performance packages as standard equipment.

  • Jensfos
    Jensfos 3 года назад +Diego Ruiz I'd rather have a real american ford, than these euro shitboxes you produce. Sincerely a Norwegian. Lol, a van that producec 115hp.. What a disgrace
  • benanderson89
    benanderson89 3 года назад @Jensfos Because vans in Europe come with diesel engines - low total HP but very high torque. If you knew anything about engines you wouldn't be complaining about that. The transit (at least in the UK) is 155hp, not 115hp. But since its a diesel engine, as mentioned, its got a mountain fo Torque. 385Nm to be exact - a V8 Mustang GT is 390Nm just to give you an idea of how powerful the transit's DCi engine is.
  • Jens Fosbæk
    Jens Fosbæk 3 года назад +benanderson89 I wouldn't brag about 385nm of torque. the gti Polo had 320nm, and that is a 1.8 turbo petrol engine. The 3.5 ecoboost has 620nm. I would love to see that engine in a van.

  • P J
    P J 3 года назад @Jens Fosbæk The ecoboost is in the Transit Van here and its detuned to make 400 ft lbs. In the F150 it makes 420 and in the Navigator it makes 460 ft lbs
  • benanderson89
    benanderson89 3 года назад @Patrick Connolly With noticeably worse fuel economy and the need to rev it higher than a Diesel to get that Torque figure. Both engines have their upsides and downsides. The 2.2L 4cyl Diesel is still getting nearly 300lb-ft and close to 40mpg - obvious advantages over a V6 getting nearly half the MPG despite the power hike. Also: I got the Mustang power wrong. Its 390lb-ft, not 390Nm (you damn Americans and your non-metric system!)
  • P J
    P J 3 года назад @benanderson89 I wasn't talking about fuel economy I was only stating the torque figures. And the Mustang GT 5.0 makes 400 ft lbs
  • benanderson89
    benanderson89 3 года назад @Patrick Connolly Yeah, and we sacrifice silly amounts of Torque for excellent fuel economy. Its the trade off. The Mustang in the UK is rated at 390lb-ft - but brochures here by law list the lowest recorded output on regular95 fuel (which is premium91 in the states). Given how much an NA engine can vary just by outside temperature alone, its unsurprising it says 390.

  • Negil Leufeln
    Negil Leufeln 4 года назад When I drive my parents 2014 Ford Escape I can't see anything. So I leave extra room, but I never feel quite safe. Sure, there's the extra airbags, and big beams. But I can't see. When I drive my '91 Civic, I feel safer. Not because the car is safer, but because I can see. I'm in control of the car. I know exactly what's upfront of me and what's behind me. The solution in my opinion is to promote locking seat-belts (and if we really want to go there, 5-point harness, or even just a four-point) with a small roll-cage built underneath the siding instead of airbags. I drive a Dodge Stratus. Wait, let me start that over. I drive a small 4-cyl. race car at a circle track. I've been t-boned at 100km/h, I've been rammed into from the back and front. Not once have even received a minor injury. Why? Not airbags, not giant beams and poor visibility, not traction control, not automatic transmissions, because of roll cages, 5-point harnesses, helmets and neck-braces.  Obviously, it would be unrealistic to expect the world to start wearing these and retro-fitting cars, but just think about it. We can still have good visibility and have safety.
  • bcsizemo
    bcsizemo 4 года назад Hell the way Ford is going the side window is going to be a quarter the height of the door.  They might as well go ahead and start making rear cameras standard, that way they can just eliminate the rear window. Actually the one thing that pisses me off the most about the super tall door, isn't just the visibility, it's the fact it sucks for hanging your arm out of while cruising along.  I mean who wants their elbow at the side of their head?
  • Negil Leufeln
    Negil Leufeln 4 года назад @bcsizemo Yeah, rear windows. I always want to adjust the rearview mirror in the Escape so I can see more, but then I remember that it wouldn't make a difference since the rear window is tiny.
  • Bob
    Bob 4 года назад @bcsizemo It's funny you say that. Rear cameras are mandated to be standard on all cars starting 2018.
  • Taylor Davy
    Taylor Davy 4 года назад I agree with this, my weekend car is caged with buckets and harnesses. But there is one problem. With a cage they would have to be hidden under the trim because hit your head on a steel pipe when you are not wearing a helmet and it is game over. Meaning the pillars would be bulky to cover the cage. Now maybe your saying the 911 RS's (GT2, GT3 etc) have cages and you don't need a helmet but look closely, they are half cages only behind the seats. Safely away from your cranium in a crash. Which in my opinion every two seat sports car should have.
  • Negil Leufeln
    Negil Leufeln 4 года назад @Charles Darwin What I was thinking of was a half cage, since it would still provide plenty of support for the driver and passenger in the case of an accident and would still allow for decent visibility and room. (although not for the passengers, but that's okay since nobody cares about them anyways)

  • Negil Leufeln
    Negil Leufeln 3 года назад @DoomsdayMelody91 sadly true. The road is uncontrolled and you can't learn the way other people drive like you can on a track (where even if other drivers are idiots, at least you can learn how to avoid them).

    blues03 3 года назад @TheS2Guy Holy shit dude, didn't want anything- I just hope you're alright from all that. Quit getting (car) rekt and stay safe out there :T
  • Negil Leufeln
    Negil Leufeln 3 года назад @blues03 Never been involved in any accidents (on the road), I've been racing at a speedway for 5 years, where I have been t-boned, and involved in many other accidents, but we're safe because our cars are built for the track.  All I was saying is on the road you don't know how people drive, on the track you can learn how they drive.
  • blues03
    blues03 3 года назад @TheS2Guy Ah, my mistake. I should have inferred that much (I do need to sleep). I agree with your statement about furthering one's own driving skills to better respond to lesser aware drivers on regular roads. I also wouldn't mind wearing a 3-point-harness and could see those being implemented as an option like on high-end AMG/M/Porsche vehicles..but I can't imagine cages becoming a standard option ever, like you yourself said.

  • ricerocket_ed6
    ricerocket_ed6 Год назад Every car made after 1973 in the United States has to support 1.5x the vehicle's weight on it's roof, more people are dying in rollover crashes because of them not wearing seat belts, which apparently is still a problem. My '03 RSX has decent visibility but not from behind, as the C pillar is monstrous. You're right though, ever drive a new Subaru WRX/Crosstrek? Those pillars are thin and the visibility is amazing, and they still get 5 star rollover ratings.

  • Aaron Kravitz
    Aaron Kravitz 2 года назад So I just bought a Fiesta ST, and it's because of this review. That bit right at the end, specifically. Mr. Regular's got something that Clarkson, Baruth, Harris, and all the rest don't, and it just sold a real car!

  • Aaron Kravitz
    Aaron Kravitz 2 года назад Well i owned an Audi before, so I miss a lot of the luxuries, but ultimately the interior is livable. I just wish there were auxiliary controls for the touchscreen. But it was so cheap and is such a laugh on twisty roads. It's NOT a car that you can have fun with under the speed limit like a BRZ or whatever. But it is a car that you can take to 9/10 on public roads without getting into felony territory. And while FWD will always have its low-speed foibles, the combination of suspension tuning and the brake-vectoring "diff" feel likes like absolute magic.
  • Aaron Kravitz
    Aaron Kravitz 2 года назад Sorry, one more thing. About the cornering. If you've got way too much speed going into a corner, and you do absolutely nothing but turn the wheel, no brakes, throttle, anything, the front wheels will understeer to scrub speed to precisely the correct speed for the corner, at which point (again, no inputs but steering angle), weight will shift back, the front tires will grab, and the back end will whip around with a faint whiff of oversteer. Instead of punishing you for being an idiot, it politely corrects you and say, "no, this is how it's done." It's unbelievable, like no other car I've driven.
  • J Clark
    J Clark Год назад Aaron Kravitz I love cornering with FWD. I'm going to miss my civic but I don't think I can justify a Cherokee, a motorcycle AND a fun-car on my budget. I'll just have to live for the moments when I can drive a friend's car and terrify them with its potential

  • riothero313
    riothero313 Год назад That's why I bought mine and modded it. I get off work at 4 in the morning in an industrial area so I have a bit of a playground to mess with. I have so many friends I work with that have challengers, chargers, mustangs etc. NOT ONE, has ever hung with me on the the switch back on ramp. I'm doing 20+mph over as I merge, I get in the middle lane and slow down to a respectable speed the they do the ricer fly by lol.

  • Max Archer
    Max Archer 4 года назад Aw, no Recaros? Would've liked to hear what you thought of them. FWIW these cars are faster than Ford would like you to believe. HP is around 180 at the wheels, not the crank, and torque is up in the 220s at the wheels, even though Ford rates it less than that at the crank. Also, it's got way more than 135MPH in it, I've had mine up close to 140 and it was still pulling.

    Ryan Redmond 3 года назад "It's like discovering the Toasters in high school with 'Don't Let the Bastards Grind You Down' during the crest of ska's third wave. You think they're a new band and then your art teacher says 'No. They've been around for ten years now' and pulls out a copy of 'New York Fever' on vinyl and you realize that you're too hip to be cool. This may be the greatest quote I've ever heard in a car review.

  • Benjamin Smith
    Benjamin Smith 4 года назад @Matthew VandenBerg RCR has a way of making information more interesting, like how he described how the car was meant to be driven. He is goofy in how he talks and presents information, but he still tells us useful information. I go to RCR because it's funny and entertaining, but also because it's informative. If you take any of the qualities away, the show becomes stupid or just your average car review.
