Here in the US we still have a bit more than a year to wait before we get our hands on the new Ford Fiesta. Not the Brits. Our friends at Top Gear have decided to try out a new road test format with the Fiesta as chief gear-head Jeremy Clarkson takes the wheel. It turns out that Clarkson was far more thorough than most such tests. After all, when was the last time you saw an economy car trying to outrun bad guys in Corvette through a mall or assaulting a beach with the Royal Marines? Apparently, smoke grenades fit perfectly into the cup holders.
On the road, the Fiesta apparently drives beautifully, is easy to park and, as you can see in the image above, it's green! If, as Ford is saying, the car will be coming to the US essentially unchanged, this could be a huge hit. Hopefully we'll be able to get car loans to buy it! Video after the jump.
