Itty-bitty Ford hatchback?

Couple months ago there was a post about that new little Ford hatchback?
Looked like a Focus only about 2/3 the size. Festiva or Fiesta maybe?
Does anyone have any pics or links?

There is a Fiesta and a KA. Try Fordeurope.net pics of all. Maybe it was a Puma!

The Fiesta.....have any 2 dr pics?
Re: Itty-bitty Ford hatchback? (AshlandSi)

sounds like either the Ka or the Fiesta.
This is the Ka:

This is the previous Fiesta (Mk5 model, the one sold in the US was the Mk1):

The Fiesta and Ka are mechanically similar, while the Ka is smaller.
The Festiva was a Mazda-engined Kia, totally unrelated to the Fiesta.

Is it just me or does the new Fiesta resemble the new Polo a whole lot??? A lot of VW lines in the body and interior. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

why won't we get that here....
Re: Itty-bitty Ford hatchback? (speedracer82)

The Ka is a cute little car, it has the old pushrod 1.3 motor that's been used by Ford Europe for years. The new Fiesta will be a serious Polo rival, but it needs the Focus' 1.8 and 2.0 engines to make it come alive.
