2014 Ford Fiesta ST - Ode to Li'l Green Monster - Review, Video

$22,225 buys Ford's "Li'l Green Monster", the 2014 Ford Fiesta ST. Actually, it's an extra $595 for the SEMA worthy Green Envy Metallic tricoat paint. But so worth it. At least in the States, the Fiesta ST may well be the subcompact 5-door hot hatchback to beat.

"Super-Size" us. (top to bottom) the 2013 Ford Taurus Limited AWD and the Chrysler 300S V6. Two full-sized American premium sedans, each priced at $40,000, well contented.

It makes little sense because, when you think about it, drivers spend more time in traffic ogling the derrieres of vehicles than their visages. And... Read more »
