What cars compete with the Fiesta ST? How do they stack up? Are you cross-shopping any other cars against the ST?
Smiles per mile is huge after the initial thrill of the new car wears off. And can differ for everyone I guess.On the cross-shopping question, I have several I'm thinking about. Criteria for short-listing are pretty open as I need no more than 2 seats, but include:
4) maximum smiles per mile - fun to drive a key criterion
I had fun driving the GTI, great car... but something to be said about the size in the Fiesta... Going from the GTI, to the Fiesta Titanium, and then a Focus ST.... Naturally more power in the GTI & FoST, but I had a blast driving even just the Titanium '14 Fiesta.... I am anticipating some serious perma-grin in the FiST. Little cars are a riot.Awesome. Looks like its just as punchy as my gti, but the smaller size is just so much more exciting. Plus the rarity factor

I agree on the gti. Its price and weight really should put it in with my second list rather than the first. I included the sonic rs just to be nice. Personally I think it would stack up against a yaris more so than a FiST.Agreed and I Don't even think the FRS/BRZ is in the same class as people will buy that car as a fun drifter not a quick FWD ... So in my book its the Veloster Turbo and the Fiat 500 Abarth. if you want to be picky you can toss in the Sonic from Chevy or the Dodge Dart that is not a hatch but has 4 doors and a woeful power to weight Ratio.. Apple to Apples and Oranges to Oranges even the GTI is more of a Focus size car . not to say your list isn't a good one just the FiST may be a giant killer in the right hands we can all hope..
Totally agree. The one forum where I see more diversity is for the Toyobaru twins, there are owners on there who have come from tuned Bimmers, muscle cars, etc. If your primary criterion is that the car must be fun to drive, you open up a large range of possibilities.Do so many people really just cross shop cars that are similar in spec/price/everything else? I never understood why people are surprised by diverse (read* interesting) lists. But seems to be a common theme among car forums.
