In a decision that makes no sense to us whatsoever, Ford SA has decided not to bring the new Fiesta ST to our shores.
The company is citing poor fuel quality for the decision in spite of the fact that the previous generation was available and that the engine in the latest version will be available in the new Focus. The new one has been lauded by media who have driven it, with many describing it as one of the best hot hatches available.
Ford SA has been making some strange choices of late, deciding not to bring the cosmetic ST Line models to SA at a time when it needs to attract style-conscious buyers after the debacle of the Kuga fire saga. – BD Motor News
