Right at this moment, 100 people selected by the Ford Motor Company are getting an early sneak peek at the 2011 Fiesta, but, as likable as they may be, the vehicles that are being used as demonstrators for the Fiesta Movement aren't U.S.-spec machines.

As you might expect, the car on its way to America will be modified a bit to comply with U.S. federal safety standards. As such, most of the changes are likely to center around the very front and rear of the car, as evidenced by the most recent spy shots of the sedan form out testing with a couple of Ford engineers behind the wheel.

The U.S.-spec Ford Fiesta's front fascia is likely to wear a slightly enlarged grille opening and a weightier bumper. Similar changes will be made out back, with a more prominent rear bumper. Here's hoping that these alterations don't impact the car's attractive shape or laudable driving dynamics.
