At last, all has been revealed.
-Exterior looks great, all is as expected. But the sedan is HUGE! 173 inches is pretty much the same length as the Mk1 Focus sedan isn't it? The hatch has grown about 5 inches over the EU model because of the new bumpers, but that's no big deal. I'm seeing a pretty wide variety of wheel options, including some straight from FoE.
-New steering wheel looks good, not as sporty as the EU's but a bit more upscale. Gauges are intact, excellent, the entire upper dash appears to be carried over, in fact...but the entire lower half of the dashboard has been redesigned. It definitely looks a bit cheaper; the bottom area with the climate controls seems to have been moved forward a bit, and the bottom half of the dash does not fall away as steeply as the European dash. It's odd that they would bother changing that area at all, but I assume there's a reason. It's nice to see the center stack controls and gauges carry over though, they still look fantastic.
One concern about the interior: the upper dash looks like hard plastic, as I had feared. The texture definitely seems different. It's not a huge deal since this is a cheap car, but it would be dissapointing for the Fiesta to lose such a nice feature.
