Rookie Of The Year: Ford Fiesta ST Wins 22 Awards In Its Debut Season

The 2014 Ford Fiesta ST will need a bigger trophy room.

The hot hatch has earned 22 awards since going on sale last year, most recently being named a 2014 Automobile Magazine All-Star ( www.automobilemag.com/2014allstars).

“High-technology hot rods like Fiesta ST have helped make fast driving possible for buyers of small cars – even those with modest budgets,” said Jean Jennings, editor-in-chief, Automobile Magazine. “It’s a bullet on the road, with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that sounds like a mini-Ferrari when flogged, supportive Recaro seats and clean shift action. Designed and engineered collaboratively by Ford’s U.S. and European operations, Fiesta ST is a testament to the success of the One Ford global vehicle development philosophy.”

Amy Marentic, Ford marketing manager, global small and medium cars, said there’s really nothing else on the market quite like Fiesta ST. “It’s fun to drive, full of high-tech features and packaged at an affordable price,” she said. “It’s no wonder Fiesta ST is not only winning awards, but that the honors range in scope from performance to value and everything in between.”

Fiesta ST is the most-awarded performance subcompact Ford has ever made. The car has earned these awards:
