Default Ford Fiesta vs. Mazda 3

Has anyone actually seen a Fiesta and can compare? Looks pretty darn cool inside.

more compareable to a honda fit or a mazda 2 (which isnt available in the states.)

my dad had an old fiesta outside of the states several years ago. it was an alright car.

Yeah, they are a different class of car. The Mazda 2 (Demio) and Ford Fiesta share the same platform. Comparing them to the 3 is apples to oranges.

The sixth generation Fiesta is a nice car and gets really nice mileage. The interior cockpit wraps around you a bit more than the Mazda 3. Truthfully I tried waiting for the Fiesta to release and was planning on getting one. No regrets on getting the Mazda 3 at all though.

If you want to see one, check Ford's site and see if one of the 100 or so demos that are floating around are nearby and drop them an email (some also have Facebook and MySpace pages).

Yeah when you see it for the first time, at least i was like "Wow, something European here finally." That kind of cars Ford should market in U.S, rather then those 500's, etc. Bring, Focus, Mondeo, etc. and everything will be great with that company, unless fat americans will still be going for Buick and other crap, that shouldnt ever be created...
