Talking Ford Verve concept, any takers?

So I was pretty pissed when the "new" Focus came out and they ditched the hatchback model, but more recently I came across "spy shots" of the 2010 fiesta, and a video of the 2010 verve concept. I'm not sure which (if either) will make it to the U.S., but I was pretty damn impressed with both of them.
o.k. your turn, what do you think?

http://www.newcarpark.com/blog/?p=56 <---Fiesta spy shots
one of the most attractive features to me on the Verve is the front grill; its probably the first ever Ford grill on a car that will accomidate an intercooler without modification

Bad news everyone... aparently the version they are planning on for the US is a 4dr sedan.... looks like its time to go back to hating Ford... it was a brief window of 30 minutes or so that i actually saw the light of redemption shine upon them...

i wonder is those wheels come in our bolt pattern? they have four lugs (crosses fingers)...

kinda cool car too... kinda looks more like a minivan to me though for some reason... i like the edge better i think, but i will keep an open mind... maybe it will grow on me

p.s. i love the interior though! very nice

It appered at the Detriot autoshow....which im surprised no one posted anythign about yet but i guess thats cause its not open to the public yet. But to see it go to the show, and im sure itll be at the rest of the shows to like the NY one. But looks like Fords series about this concept to put it in detriot. Looking forward to the production car.

I like it. Even if it is a four door, i like the front end better than the 08 focus.

Am I the only one that thinks the 4 door looks better than the 2 door? I own a 2 door hatch, but for some reason I do like it. At least this has a chance to make it to the marketplace. I hope so, I'd buy this car.

Here's the link to the DAS Concept reveal. If we do get it, it will be this. Even though it's a sedan, it's downright sexy IMO

I don't care if they make a 2 door or a 4 door, I just want a bloody hatchback; a hatchback simply can hold more stuff than a sedan, which is great for someone who does not want to move up to a mid size and sacrafice performance, fuel economy, and handling (as well as a bunch more money). I'm still in shock over the fact that Ford has removed the hatchback (and wagon) model from thier lineup; the only options are either "cross overs" or suv's if you want something as utilitarian as a hatchback, and with those comes a high sticker price, poor fuel economy, and poor performace; so the only option i have when i get my next car is to go with a different brand; way to drop a brand loyal customer Ford.... the mini cooper & honda fit are looking pretty good right about now; that or an old B16 del sol...
