Reasons to be cheerful: Ford Fiesta ST vs XR2
30 years later, Ford proves that it's still got the magic hot-hatch touch
Posted: 24 Jan 2014
Of course, the intervening decades have led to some necessary fattening - mostly life-saving safety blubber - and the Fiesta has grown up with the cars around it. But, fundamentally, it's from the same stock as the XR2. Think of it as a reliable family recipe, guarded and refined from one generation to the next. Add a pinch of horsepower here, a sprinkle of garnish there. Heat gently for 30 years. Serve. Enjoy.
