Ford should be able to make the 2018 Fiesta global even with less plants building it.

Re: All New Fiesta ...now including Fiesta ST

Motor Trend has a test of the Euro Spec 2018 Fiesta, referred to it as "One of the best subcompacts available, if it were available" http://www.motortrend.com/cars/ford/...n-spec-review/ My favorite quote though is "Itís not transformative because it had no need to be. But itís a solid update, and Americans would have the right to feel pissed if denied it"

Maybe the plan for N.A. Fiesta is what Ford Brazil is doing, and just facelifting the current Fiesta.

I hope not.

It's funny Ford has the Ka in Brazil to do the low-cost car stuff, yet they still plan to do this with its Brazilian Fiesta?
The refreshed Brazilian Fiesta is going to look old next to the 2019 Focus, and another thing, VW will launch the all-new Polo in Brazil.

Re: All New Fiesta ...now including Fiesta ST

Just a hunch but I wonder if the old Fiesta will get another update to carry it over until a next-generation product specific to this region fills the factory, like a 3rd gen EcoSport or another product. But it seems like we probably won't get the new Fiesta unless they really want to adhere to the 2-year launch gap from the previous Fiesta...which doesn't make much sense since the last MCE re-aligned the timing.

Let's hope they let us know as soon as possible if it's good news or bad news for the Fiesta in other markets.

I don't mind it, he said "the Fiesta is without doubt one of the very best small cars you can buy"


I do agree that better plastics should be put on things people make contact with more often inside like the inside door handles, though it probably wouldn't bother me (as long as there are no sharp edges/seams).
Anyway, this can easily be fixed/upgraded during the mid-cycle refresh.

Re: All New Fiesta ...now including Fiesta ST

I didn't mind the guy either, adding a bit of weak humor to what is often a drab review.

I do know this much, I would love to drive this little car and it might be the first sub compact I would consider buying.
