When deciding on a used car, we often debate over what our priorities are. Usually fun ranks at the bottom of the list, after safety, value, comfort, and tech features. What if you didn’t have to sacrifice any of that? For drivers seeking more than a little fun in their next used car, there’s the 2015 Ford Fiesta ST.
A review by Auto Trader lauds the serious performance of the ST model, saying that the Fiesta was designed for fashion-forward shoppers in need of elegant dynamics and design. The Fiesta ST comes with a powerful 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine, which can unleash 197 horsepower and 202 pound-feet of torque. Not bad for an economy compact. It delivers a noteworthy fuel economy of 26 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway.
Tech Features for the ST include a rearview camera with rear parking sensors, Sony audio system with HD Radio and satellite radio, and the MyFord Touch system with navigation. Fancy frills include leather upholstery, chrome exterior trim, and 17-inch alloy wheels. Those with a need for speed will appreciate the sport front seats, dual exhaust tips, and, of course, the 6-speed manual transmission.
The interior of this compact car is anything but and can comfortably fit four adults. The back seats fold down to create more than enough space for camping gear, snowboards, or whatever you can dream up for a weekend getaway for two.
