We recently had 2 Fiestas this decade, and were what the Dr. ordered. Wife's cars and being hatchbacks, perfect for her ceramics business. We were sent a rebate check because Ford couldn't confirm fuel mileage numbers or similiar problem. Was getting 42 MPG both cars on trips and had no problem with that, thank you Ford.

The extra room in the garage was phenomenal with car inside. But between that and the Focus I saw almost identical cars with maybe a bit more cargo room in Focus. Thought they were grafted, a longer rear was added and that was it (also told 2 completely different ideas).

So why would there be 2 vehicle choices so mirror imaged? Seems like a big production expense not to mention the available versions; the Focus was more expensive.

Fiesta is not as wide as Focus. It’s a B sized car while Focus is a C sized car - longer and wider. The main purpose is to provide a lower price point. Or conversely to allow Focus to be higher priced. Just like Ecosport and Escape.

Going forward there won’t be a Fiesta in the US - just Ecosport.

Both cars have sold well in Europe, for decades. US now is all truck happy, and there's many different sizes, so what?
