The Fiesta is one nice little car but I prefer the extra room of the Focus which was the deal breaker when we were looking at both back in spring.
The MK3 is quite a bit larger. Some like myself prefer the smaller Fiesta, and are waiting for the ST.

I wasn't refering strictly to crash ratings. Those of us who have been arround FF awhile have seen plenty of Foci wrecked with few serious injuries.

Go to a dealer, park your SVT next to a Fiesta hatchback and compare the size inside and out. Very close in size.
