Ford Fiesta ST is Top Gear’s Car of the Year

Anyone who’s ever watched an episode of Top Gear can tell you that Jeremy Clarkson and the guys are big fans of performance cars—after all, what kind of a car enthusiast isn’t?

But when it came time to decide what car would win the show’s 2013 Car of the Year, they have to consider not just the performance cars but every car, and this year they picked one that you might not have expected: the Ford Fiesta ST.Ford Fiesta - Top Gear 2013 Car of the Year

Well, if you’ve driven one before, maybe you did expect it. It beat the innovative Volkswagen XL1 and the crazy Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak, not to mention all of the attention-grabbing cars from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Porsche that Top Gear considered. If you’ve driven one before, there’s no doubt you would have immediately experienced why.

But for those of us who haven’t, Top Gear’s magazine editor put it well: “It’s a car that invigorates, excites and rekindles some of the love you thought you’d lost for the simple stuff. A car that puts a smile on your face each and every day. It’s the most enjoyable car of 2013.”

And we can’t agree more. Come find it at Cambridge Classic Ford.
