Ford offers a 3 door hatch in foreign markets, with official numbers coming in today on the Fiesta ST to have a whopping 197hp and 215ft/lbs of torque.
The 5 door has a approximate curb weight of 2550lbs and now almost 200hp with 34mpg highway. That is all well and good but why not take another 200-300lbs off of that weight by offering it in a model they already make?
It will change the car from approximately 12.9 to 11.4 pounds per hp. That is definitely enough of a difference in acceleration as well as lateral g force. Shaving weight means better mpg, how cool does a car that gets 36mpg highway and has the same power to weight as a v6 mustang but starts at 4000 less.
