Does it really matter what name this car has? I think that because the car will be the most global of any in Ford's history, and the Fiesta name is popular around the globe, a bit of unity wouldn't be a bad thing. Unfortunately, in the U.S., where Ford Fiesta sounds a bit like Ford Festiva. I guess if 70-85 percent of the parts are the same around the world, a different name badge is pretty easy to do.
