Five door Ford Fiesta Spied in the U.S.
A very interesting little five door Ford Fiesta hatchback was spotted rolling around the U.S. wearing some familiar automotive camouflage. What makes this particular Fiesta so special is that unlike the Fiesta Movement cars, this appears to be a full fledged U.S. spec car. When we spoke with the Fiesta’s Brand Manager Sam de la Garza, who was extremely excited about the new car; he told us that the final production version will be very similar to what we drove, the only changes to the body will come from government mandated safety regulations. In the U.S. the importance is put on passengers surviving a crash while in Europe the magistrates are more concerned with how the unfortunate pedestrian will fair.
Nevertheless from the looks of things our money is on Ford adding the five door model to the Fiesta lineup when they go on sale next year. The only thing that we here at Top Speed are pleading for is some sort of a Ford Racing Parts catalog dedicated to the blue oval’s interpretation of the VW GTI. What we would really like to see is a few Fiestas to show up in showrooms wearing some iteration of the rally car’s boxed fenders and oversized rear wing, and if Ford’s engineers can give it even a quarter of the Pikes Peak Fiesta’s 800 HP output that would be fine by us as well.
