We've been busting Ford's corporate spheres for some time now. And with good reason.
But it looks like the U.S. automaker has gone and done The Right Thing for those looking for a small Ford sans trunk.
Buried in a longwinded PR memo released this afternoon confirming the long held suspicion the 2010 Fiesta sedan is going to be made in Mexico (ironically, in a plant that will shift from making F-series pickups for Mexico to making small cars for all of North America), Ford also confirmed a Fiesta hatchback will go on sale at the same time.
Ford is being sketchy if the hatchback Fiesta will be a three-door, five-door (officially shown above). We say go for both. I mean what's the concern? With small cars hotter than jalapeno jelly, Ford's only problem will be keeping Fiestas in stock on dealer lots.
We've only seen production concepts of the Fiesta sedan (nee Verve) on the show car circuit. But if the Fiesta that goes on sale in two years drives and feels anywhere near as well as it looks, Nissan's Versa, Honda's Fit and Toyota's Yaris will finally have some serious competition, for a change.
