The next generation Ford Fiesta
mini-car has been caught on camera again, this time without tarps. The new B-Car inherits the "kinetic design" look of the latest Mondeo mated to the same platform that underpins the new Mazda2
. Compared to the relatively upright and boxy look of the current Fiesta
the new one looks far more modern and sleek. For the home market, a range of gas and diesel
engines running from 1.3L to 1.8L will be available.
Hopefully this design is the one we will see when the mini car comes to the US late next year, rather than the more upright one that has been spotted in and around Dearborn in recent months. That latter car is now reported to be a Brazilian market model. AutoExpress is reporting that the new Fiesta will debut next month in Frankfurt and go on sale in Europe in spring 2008.
