Smart car cannot be compared to a Fiesta ST in any way shape or form

I'm talking sizewise which is rediculously small if you unfortunatly happen to be in an accident with even a regular Focus might have some bad results.

The size of the Fiesta is almost exactly the same as the MK1 and MK1.5 Focus, wich has proven to be a very safe car despite it's copact size.

Safety ratings are one thing when they are tested against a wall or something of the like vs real world crash with a F-150.

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.

Really, the fiesta always looked smaller.

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.

Agreed. I prefer the smaller Fiesta, and would prefer a smaller 3 door even more!
