The hot hatch versions of the Fiesta are always known for one thing – their handling. This new one is a little bigger than before, but lighter with it, and packs 197 bhp from a 1.5 litre turbo engine (yes – that’s 197 bhp from just a 1.5 litre engine). That means you get typically brilliant handling, plenty of power, and great fuel economy too.
