Is Ford About to Finally Bring Us a Euro Model?

Posted in Four Wheels by Stacy McMahon on September 28, 2008

As long as I’ve been into cars, Ford has said every year that it was going to bring this or that European model to the US unchanged. And in all that time the only one that’s actually made it over here was the Merkur Scorpio, weird (and therefore unsuccessful) even in its day.

According to Car and Driver, that’s all about to change. Now that Toyota and Honda have proven the market for microcars in the US, we’re – fingers crossed – going to get the new Ford Fiesta. European C/D correspondent Ray Hutton says ride and handling is on par with the Honda Fit. I’d go for it even if it was only up to Yaris standards. It’s definitely pretty.
