Ask Ford

Will you ever think (even just think about it) of ever bringing the Ford Fiesta Econetic to America?


The Fiesta Econetic with its super-efficient diesel engine is an amazing little car to be sure. And be assured, we are always considering ways to offer consumers the best value and fuel economy. Keep in mind, however, that to meet U.S. emission standards, which are different from Europe, the price of a diesel is often far more than a similar gas engine. And, more importantly, you have to understand the outstanding numbers are unique to Europe, since they test cars very differently over there than we do in the United States. The fuel economy numbers would be lower in EPA test cycles, so this is certainly a case of the grass (or the car) being greener on the other side of the fence. The good news: Much of the technology in the Fiesta Econetic is being introduced into our Ford products here in the U.S.

Chris R Well, thank you so much for that explanation. I appreciate it. Hey at least we're getting some of the technology. I'm so happy we even have a Fiesta back here after so long. Now if you could only get us the Phantom Purple color over here, then I'd be ecstatic. Otherwise this is a great car.
