Default New Fiesta ST. 3 cylinders is faster than 4.

Drag race comparison. New 3 cylinder walks all over the old 4 banger.

I thought Ford wasn't making cars anymore except for the Mustang.
Is that just for the US market?

Anyone driven this 3 cylinder in any variant yet? Ford was super proud of it a few years ago.

Ford says No Soup For You.

These aren't coming to the US. Which sucks, because the Fiesta ST is a big seller when it comes to cheap performance starter cars.

Yeah, I drove a 3 cylinder 1.0 EcoBoost in a Focus with a 6-speed manual. It was slow, but SUPER smooth and pleasant. Not sure it had enough oomph for a daily driver Focus...Would've liked to drive the Fiesta version, but the Fiesta is just too small of a car.

Aren't the current Fiesta ST's much faster than 16.1 in the quarter?

Pretty sure I have heard or seen bone stock ones running 14.9 and above. Guess depends on driver and conditions.

Plus, unprepared airport runway is what they test on. So ET's will suffer. And the timing system isn't the same as a true drag strip.

But most of the stock Fiesta ST's are solid mid 15's with average drivers.
