I've driven both, but you'll have to wait for my Fiesta ST Test Drive article coming shortly to know my thoughts. ;)

But, what are YOUR thoughts?

You don't need to have driven either, or both, to let us know your thoughts!

That's exactly what I mean by weight. It's hard for a 3300 pound car to feel nimble.

LOL you should try it with a 4400ish lb Challenger !! :poop:
No thank you! lol

I still can't figure out why a 2013 Titanium weighs in at 2948 and the ST is 3250. Both follow loaded cars will tons of options and there's still an extra 300 pounds?

The hatchback has a curb weight of 3043, actually.

(but that's still 200lbs)
FoST has the turbo and intercooler im thinking that stuff costs Lbs
Overall, the Focus is probably more practical, but I'll sacrifice some comfort on longer road trips for the other 90% of the time it's just me, driving to work.

That being said, the Focus ST has one of the ugliest rear bumpers of all time - the extension they added to match the bodykit gives it too many angles (it curves inward, then out, then back in, then a bunch of ribbing, and finally back out again). I actually like the taillights, especially the way they 'hid' the gas cap, and I like having the gas cap on the passengers side - one thing I'll miss with the Fiesta - because most cars have it on the driver's side, so it's easier to find an empty pump when it's on the 'wrong' side.
I like the idea of the taillights but I hate the rounded quality to the fingers. It makes them look blob-like rather than sharp. Hardly 'focused', as it were.
