Funny you should mention the fiesta as I seen one in Mexico as well as the KA or whatever that is called. I am soooooooooooooooooooo GLAD that they don't have those cars here, all we need is another subcompact junkbox like the Festiva and Aspire were for the NA market. No thanks.

The KA is a strange, like STRANGE looking car......

The Fiesta and Ka are a far cry from those bottom-of-the-barrel cars. In fact they are both held in quite high esteem, and praised for their quality and fun quotient in addition to their economy.

The Fiesta is nice. The Ka, not my cup of tea.

The Fiesta ST is packing some heat under the hood though. I wouldn't mind those comeing over the pond. It is a bit smaller and a little faster than a stock MK1 ZX3, that = good in my book. The Ka has some killer comercials too. The Ka evil twin is super funny.

The Ka has partly stuck around as long as it has because of its unique looks. In Europe is a now a cult car right up there with Mini and Twingo.

Ford has recently signed up with Fiat to develop a platform for the next Ka and Fiat 600. For sure, it will not be available north of the Rio Grande.

OMG GET OVER IT!! Europe is a compact-centered market! North America ISN'T!
Is Ford the only company that HOLDS BACK premium compacts from the NA market? Hell no! Where is our twin-charged Golf GT? Where is our Nissan Skyline? 350 HP WRX?

Wake up people. If Ford could make money selling those cars, they would. Ford NA is all about the pickup trucks and SUVs (with a little 'stang thrown in).

The Focus we have right now is still a pretty great lil car (IMO). Enjoy it while you can ($3000 rebates man!!). Quit worrying about what you can't have. And don't blame Ford- it's Ralph Nader's fault!

Is it just me or does the Ka look like the lovechild of a new beetle and an aspire?
