    I like it!

    And here's why: This means the US and EU front ends will likely be interchangeable, making it easier to adapt options we may not have, such as projector beam headlamps.

    FYI: The article title says 2013... but they refer to the 2014 model, so keep that in mind!

    Uhh... Wow. I can't say I'm a fan either. 3 Cylinder engine is intriguing though.

    Other Curiosities:

    The silver sedan is an SE, yet it has the european-style wing mirrors (note lack of "fins" and rounder shape) with side markers.

    The headlights are also euro-spec (note lack of orange reflectors)

    Technicolor door handles as optional equipment

    I don't like the look. I'm not sure my next car will be a Fiesta, but I'd never claim that anyway. I don't like the way it looks, and for me that is important for my car. I can't be proud of my car if I think she's hideous.

    I suspect the grills on the sedan will be on the hatchback instead of the fog lamp circles since the sedan is made for the US and therefore newer design.

    It's clear to me. Compare the lower/sides of the grill in picture 2 to picture 8.

    You said (translated):

    'The grilles that appear on the sedan will be on the hatchback instead of fog lights because the sedan is made for the US and is newer'

    You probably meant: "the sedan won't get fog lights"?

    And remember, the sedan isn't just in the Americas. It's in Asia Pac as well.

    I think the US will get fogs, and you're just seeing a lower trim option.

    You could be right. I could be right. Time will tell. Either way it's ugly.

    I disagree on everything but the first statement.
