This, and they sold far fewer Fiestas as of late than they have Foci as there isn't a strong value proposition to purchase the Fiesta new.
Its this fact that tends to make it appear that the value is higher second hand is that there are fewer available on the second hand market.
A loaded fiesta costs around $21k on the sticker, you could still get a decently equipped Focus for that new, and a lot of people and companies did just that.
