I like the blue accented interior. Good thing, since I reserved mine with it
B-Segment aka Supermini's are known as city cars, due to their small size allowing for easier access to parking spots.I never really thought of the Fiesta as a "city car." It's not much smaller than my old 01 ZX3. To me, A class cars are city cars. I would be getting this to be my long distance commuter car. I would never even think of getting something as small as a Smart car for that duty.
I agree. It seems like in every new car brochure they always show pics of the high end trim levels and not the mid trim and base models.I really wish there were some press pictures of the SE hatch, but they're all of SES or SEL models...
They MSRP price of the Focus Sedan is currently 15,995. We just never see any sell for that because while the Focus drives extremely well (its why I own one) it in many other respects falls short of the competition.The Focus may get near-as-good gas mileage but mark my words, it'll be more expensive. The sedan will probably start no lower than $15,000; I wouldn't be surprised if it's closer to $16k. And if they follow the Mazda3 model (which they have with the Fiesta so they will with the Focus), the hatch will start at $18-19,000, so there'll be plenty of room for the Fiesta.
The Focus won't be that expensive for a long time, unless inflation goes crazy in the next year. It won't start at more than $17k, but yeah decently equipped it should be 19k minimum. The Fusion will probably creep up later on too, but for know I think the 13-16-19k staggering for the Fiesta/Focus/Fusion respectively will work out well for Ford.The Focus MK III starting price tag should be around 19K about the same as the Fusion. To try and keep some price balance. I doubt the Fiesta is going to be dropped so suddenly but I could see it following suit of the Focus MK I and losing a hatch model for a sedan depending on sales. American's are warming back up to hatches slowly but there still pretty set on sedans.
