Click the Fiesta for a high-res gallery


We got our first look at the production version of the 2009 Ford Fiesta a couple of weeks ago and most of you were overwhelmingly positive about it. The new Fiesta is coming to America in at least four-door sedan and very likely hatchback form as well. Last fall in Frankfurt, Ford announced that they would create ecoNetic low CO2 versions of most of their cars starting with the Focus. As Ford shows the Fiesta publicly in Geneva this week, they are expected to announce an ecoNetic version as well. Ford hasn't announced details yet other than that the ecoNetic model will get CO2 emissions below 100g/km and it would have only a small price premium over the standard model. It will almost certainly use a small diesel engine combined with low rolling resistance tires, low friction transmission fluid, different gear ratios and some aerodynamic tweaks to get those low numbers.
