Do you guys understand how happy I am about these cars?
Ford Focus ST and Ford Fiesta ST. Both are available (or at least will be; the Fiesta is on its way) in the US, both are turbocharged hot hatches, both are economical and practical, and both come with six-speed manuals. The Focus is larger and more powerful (252hp) and the Fiesta is less powerful (197hp) but with a ~500lb weight advantage. And I want them both so badly.
Good job, Ford. Four for you, Ford.
