Track Race: New VW Polo GTI vs Ford Fiesta ST
Well this is exciting. The brand new Volkswagen Polo GTI against the semi-legendary current model Ford Fiesta ST. It’s exciting because VW has really upped their game in this segment. The latest GTI looks fantastic, and as Ashley Oldfield assured me, the suspension setup is very unlike a VW. This is a good thing. VW has also shoved in a 1.8 litre turbo motor with outputs of 141kW and 250Nm. But, list price is R326 400, with our test unit coming in at around R340 000. It feels very premium inside however, the new alcantara and leather seats are just the business and of course it has two more doors than the Fiesta ST. With a list price of R275 900, the ST is significantly cheaper, but is only available as a three-door hatch (other markets have a five-door, boo). The 1.6 litre turbo motor in the ST offers 134kW and 240Nm, with an overBoost function. The Fiesta is 90kg lighter than the Polo, weighing in at 1100kg (kerb weight) which should help it around Killarney. Making it even more interesting, the Polo we used was fitted with DSG, while the Fiesta was manual. This was going to be a great test of car and driver skill. With the two cars lined up, we told our very own Ashley Oldfield to climb into his gear and the result is this video. One standing start hot lap of the Killarney Racetrack in Cape Town, by one driver, in perfect conditions, minutes after each other. It doesn’t get closer.

► 2013 Ford Fiesta ST
http://www.youcar.tv Ford Motor Company is unveiling the new productionready Fiesta ST at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in advance of the performance hatchback's launch in Europe in 2013. Customers have clamoured for a new Fiesta ST since the last model disappeared from European showrooms in 2008. The all-new model will take Fiesta ST performance to a new level. The numbers tell the story: 180PS 1.6-litre EcoBoost, 240Nm of torque, 0-100km/h in under seven seconds, and top speed of more than 220km/h. At the same time, the EcoBoost technology delivers a 20 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions compared with the previous Fiesta ST. Developed by Ford's Team RS, the new Fiesta ST delivers significant ride-and-handling improvements through the introduction of a specially tuned chassis that sits 15mm lower than the standard Fiesta; Ford's enhanced Torque Vectoring Control system; and three Electronic Stability Control modes. The technologies were put to the test over 5000 kilometers of driving on Germany's Nürburgring Nordschleife.
