    Not sure how I feel about the exterior styling but good lord the interior looks so nice compared to our cars. Hopefully ford stops beating around the bush and tell us soon if the next fiesta is coming stateside.

    I agree with everyone kvelling over the next gen's interior, but, the lack of a 3 door option, and ultimately (and I'm one of the [/I]very few[/I] on here who think this) not having ALL wheels driven (or at the very least a factory installed limited slip option), bother me A LOT MORE about our current models than the interior ever possibly could.

    The updated interior is an improvement.
    I'm sure it handles better and hopefully the new ST will still have some grunt like our motors. I'm interested particularly how it behaves in the lower RPMs. Driver tech is nice for those that want it but for a Fiesta I think driving modes are a bit overkill for anything except traction control.

    Unfortunately... it looks hideous. If the MK7 looks like an angry frog/Sonic the hedgehog, this looks like a streamlined guppy. I'm pretty sure this 'ST line' essentially has the same body kit, wheels, stance as the actual ST? Are these the rims everyone was going crazy for?

    I know looks are subjective, but this misses the mark for me. If I wanted a mundane looking 'hot hatch' I'd get a golf GTI.

    I like the nicer interior. I doubt any version of the new Fiesta will be sold the U.S. the U.S. dealers just never warmed to Fiesta. It's profit margins and size we're too small. The powershift transaxle issues torpedoed the hope for volume sales.

    If the variant of the ST line made it over in the states, I might have been driving a 1.0L instead of the ST. In stop and go city, I rarely get to open up and appreciate her true capabilities. Also I would get double the mileage. The 1.0l gets high 30s-40MPG in the city. I'm averaging 20MPG (still under 3k miles though). :/

    I like the idea of a 1.5L 3-cylinder engine. The exhaust note with an aftermarket system will be awesome! I will buy the new Fiesta ST if it ever comes to the states, but only if I can afford keep my current Fiesta too.
