Ford FIESTA first drive PICTURES ADDED

A stylish, well executed small car. I can't wait for it to get here. It hope it dominates the segment and steals sales away from the other subcompact blandmobiles (basically everything that is available in the segment in the U.S. at the moment). I thought I read that the U.S. is only getting the 5-door and sedan, which I think is a mistake. The 3-door would appeal to those who still think that 2 side doors equal a sporty car.

I hope they bring the diesel. 67mpg is awesome, and it looks so nice.

One of my relatives is looking into a new car that's good on gas. He owns a Hyundai XG or whatever they call it right now. He was thinking about the Volt, but iffy on the price, or a Prius, which I promptly tried to steer him away from. I told him about and showed him the Fiesta and he was very impressed by what he saw.

That rear 3/4 view is about as goofy looking as a Yaris hatch, if not more so.

Ford went all out with this car, it has CR-V levels of oddness to it.

Very nice, but the exchange rates scare me. I hope it comes to America intact.

Kudos to Ford!

But this part of the review cracked me up:

As consumers look to downsize without compromise, well-engineered, well-built and desirable small cars such as the Fiesta stand to profit. The Fiesta might not be as good to drive as the Focus, but it's a better all-around car for the times we live in.

Talk about contradiction...

They mean global Focus, not the US one.

I know, but the author talks about not compromising and then references our need to compromise for "the times we live in"

I just thought it was funny.

In a world where quantity and need to get everything NOW is preferred over quality, what can you expect.
