ST 1.6 (M) (2013)
Bought new, Owned for 1 Year
Fuel Economy: 14.0 km/litre (7.1 L/100 km), RON97, Mileage: 1,000 km/month
    - Sharp and precise handling makes it very agile and fantastic for backroads
    - 199PS and 290Nm is an enormous amount of get-go for a car that weighs ~1100kg
    - Solid gearshift action and precise clutch biting point
    - Nice meaty audio feedback from the engine under boost
    - Surprisingly economical even when driven aggressively (~14km/l)
    - Recaro seats provide huge amounts of support (but if you're a larger-sized person it may be too snug)
    - Ambient lighting is a nice plus
    - Will put a smile on your face like a silly person every time you take it for a drive
    - Assembled in Germany instead of Thailand like the standard Fiesta (not sure if it's necessarily a plus but i guess the workmanship is better?)
    - Infotainment system is a bit tired (Malaysia doesn't get the colour screen option)
    - Average boot and rear passenger space
    - Probably the stiffest ride in its class (absolutely superb handling as a result)
    - The bolstered front Recaro seats don't fold down much which makes it a little hard to get in and out of the backseats if you ever need to
    - At RM 149k, this is an absolute driver-centric hot hatch which isn't for everyone. Plus, that kind of money will offer you many other options (but without the performance and sheer joy).
To Improve
- Better infotainment system (already included in the 2017 Fiesta facelift)
- More soft-touch materials (already included in the 2017 Fiesta facelift)
Yes, I would recommend this car
