2010 Ford Fiesta Spotted in the Wild, Then De-Wilded

April 24, 2008
Prototypes for the North American-spec Ford Fiesta have been spotted in Dearborn, giving us our first look at the non-hatchback version. As expected, this prototype takes many cues right off the Verve four-door concept car that bowed at this year's Detroit Auto Show. The camouflage keeps us from seeing just how verbatim the translation from concept to production actually is, but the differences will most assuredly only be trim differences designed to make the concept model as sexy as possible. It appears that the concept's backlight might be a bit more raked than the production model, and the rear overhang may be a bit longer, but those impressions may be from a slight change of angle, and the camouflage cladding.

As of now, we're told that this four-door sedan is the only model destined for our shores, but the three- or five-door hatchbacks could easily make the move to U.S. showrooms if demand is deemed strong enough.--KGP Photography
