In the flesh: 2014 Ford Fiesta

2014 Ford Fiesta
Despite the sign in the background, this is not the 2014 Fiesta ST. It is, however, a 2014 Ford Fiesta, complete with the redesigned front end, making it similar to many of Ford's other offerings. One might argue the new grille gives the Fiesta a more grown up look. On the other hand, it could be said the new grill makes it look more like a Fusion—a great car—but not a youthful subcompact.

As we've mentioned before, the '14 Focus will be available with the all-new 1.0-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder engine, making it one of the highest gas-powered vehicles on the market. The current 1.6-liter engine will be the base engine, and the hot-hatch ST-only 1.6-liter turbocharged engine will also make its debut in '14. We're looking forward to both turbo options.

Not bad, but I think the pics are too close or with a wonky lens or something - it looks stretched out in the first pic.

Still can't stand that it is like the ONLY car (I'm sure it is not and someone will probably try to correct me) that is 4 x 108 - as a current Fiesta owner that fact drives me crazy... so much for all of my awesome 4x100 autox wheels :/
