Chris Harris from DRIVE decided to do an interesting comparison between a Ford Fiesta ST and Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG.

It wasn't the typical drag race between the hot hatch and high-performance SUV as he wanted to find out if the G63 AMG was still faster even when towing the Fiesta ST. As a reminder, the G63 AMG has a twin-turbo V8 5.5-liter developing 544 HP (400 kW) and 560 lb-ft (760 Nm), while the Fiesta ST makes use of a 1.6-liter EcoBoost mill rated at 182 HP (134 kW) and 177 lb-ft (240 Nm).

At first he tested the Fiesta ST which completed the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) run in 6 seconds and 0-100 mph (0-161 km/h) in 18.3 seconds. After that, the 2013 G63 AMG towing the Fiesta ST was put to the test and reached 60 mph in 9 seconds and 100 mph in 22 seconds. As a result, the Fiesta ST is still faster under its own power when pitted against a G63 AMG carrying the feisty hatchback.
