    An interesting entry into the small hot hatch segment.

    The left foot braking calibration needs more details. WIll this allow you to do clutchless gear changes with the rev matching software as part of the auto rev matching????

      It’s a bit disappointing that it’s mostly software and plastics wrapped around the regular 1.6T engine. And I say that because although that’s the traditional hot hatch formula it’s also a bit softer than the approach they took with the i30.

      It’s no GR Yaris competitor everyone was hoping for, but will keep the Fiesta ST honest.

        Definitely a Fiesta ST and Polo GTI competitor, not a GRY competitor although the first video I watched on it mentioned the GRY multiple times, even in the title of the video!

        I'm sure it will be a fun drive, but they'll be doing bloody well if its as good to drive as the Fiesta.

          Nah as with all rev match or auto blip, its for those who can’t heel/toe.

          looks like a ripper little car.

            The auto rev match is fun to try to trick. Things like going from 5th or 4th back to 2nd can trick some, but some, like the 370Z system coped.

            Still want to know what the left foot braking calibration is and what it does different.

              Hopefully it means they don’t kill the throttle when left foot braking like too many cars do these days.

                  Be interesting to see how they price it in Australia, presumably it will undercut the Fiesta ST and Polo GTi but by how much?

                    It works really well in the i30N so I'd hope it's just as sorted in the 20. I haven't been able to trick it yet. It's quite fun to row back through the gears when slowing down from 100 in a hurry.
