With no options, the Fiesta ST will cost just $21,400. That's $600 less than an Abarth and undercuts a Mini Cooper S by about $2,500. Suhweeeet.
And for that price, you're getting one of the most attractive hatchbacks on the market. And it has 37 more horsepower than the Abarth, to bring the total to a nice 197. It's not 200, but we'll take it. Dynamically, this looks like it'll be a pretty sweet little ride.
I just spec'ed one out as I'd like it, and with Recaro seats and a couple other little doo dads, the little ST came to $24,985. That's definite Abarth territory.
If you don't want a hot rod, the regular sedan starts at $14,000 and the hatchback at $14,600. Not bad at all.
