.....and it was extremely underwhelming. I chose to drive this car because if you look at size, price, weight, and HP/tq numbers it is the closest to a fiesta st out of anything out there. It rode much softer than my Prelude Si (with 170k miles on it) and though steering was sharp I wouldn't call it nimble. Here is the worst part: you cannot feel the turbo until 3000 rpm and the sensation of acceleration up to that point was downright boring. After it kicked in it was fun for about another 3500 rpm then it felt like the turbo gave up. There was no torque steer at all. I tested this by flooring it from a stand still with no hands on the wheel (in an abandoned parking lot.) Long story short: my 18 year old Honda with 165hp felt more agile yet just as fast. I hope beyond all hope that the fiesta feels much better. Too bad Ford doesn't have a warranty like Hyundai's.
