WEBSITE: http://www.fordvehicles.com/2011fiesta

Official:

1.6l TiVCT engine

Powershift dual clutch tramission

3 leather options

up to 7 airbags (the usual 6 plus knee)

standard ESC

coming early 2010

Other info:

transmisison will have 6 speeds

engine is the same as the one in EU - all aluminum DOHC, 16V engine. No RoCam for US

launch is VERY early 2010 - production might start in very late 2009

Looks - look at the detroit Verve concept - 90% identical (the usual concept to production: frames around windows etc)

Comparative fuel economy analysis (comparing Fe in Australian tests) shows that the Fiesta will be more efficient than the Fit, Versa, or Aveo, and exactly on par with the Yaris.

Very, very nice. This is one of the vehicles I'm looking forward to most. I saw the Verve sedan concept today at LAIAS, and it was hot. There were huge crowds gathered around it.

Yeah, I'm normally not a fan of subcompacts...but this seems very well designed, very well equipped.
