Attention car buyers looking live it up with the excitement of a performance car but the fuel consumption of a small car: Your party has arrived. The 2014 Ford Fiesta ST, debuting this week at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, celebrates the fun of its 197-horsepower, turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine while getting an anticipated 34 mpg.
The corresponding sporty look of the new Fiesta ST features a gaping mesh grille with an "ST" badge in the corner, an aggressive front lip spoiler, larger rocker panels, a mesh-style section above the twin exhaust outlets, a large spoiler atop the liftgate and 17-inch alloy wheels. That"s in addition to chassis revisions that improve steering quickness and stability around corners. Check out the gallery below.
