US Spec Fiesta Spy shots!!!

I'm excited to see some US spec ford fiesta spy shots...but worried at the same time. The fiesta already looks amazing so Ford better be careful. It sucks that the bumpers will have to be made slightly larger to accommodate safety standards.

The pictures are of the SEDAN, not the hatchback you are all used to seeing. It isn't "ruined," it is exactly what we have thought it was going to be all along.

The hatchback is the one to worry about if you will worry at all, but even that is going to be a LOT closer to what the European model is than most people realize

i just hope that they integrate the bumpers on the fiesta hatch better than they did on the focus back in 2000. that was the one thing i hated about my focus' appearance. if they can pull it off and if they leave the suspension alone, i can definitely see myself buying one of these cars in a couple of years.

A "source" told me that the bumpers will only be elongated by millimeters.

If that was an exaggeration or not, only time will tell...

Remember Ford did fore warn that N.A. Fiesta will share 70-80% commonality. That 20-30% will make for many differences.

Already seen mentioned on digiknows.com video were Ford showed different designed seats for the N.A. Fiesta. I notice from these latest spy pics the wiper blades are not the bracketless type.

I would imagine the only people that will notice the changes are the on-line community following the Fiestas journey to North America.
