Would You Pay $20,000 Or More for a 2011 Ford Fiesta?

With the 2011 Ford Fiesta soon hitting the market here in the U.S. customers will take alot into consideration when deciding on this car. Motor Trend is asking it’s readers a question on price that will be asked all over the states in a few months. Would you pay $20,000 or more for a 2011 Ford Fiesta? Ford should take a hard look at the answers as well because they will be fielding these questions at their dealerships real soon. The Fiesta has been a homerun around the globe with the North American market finally getting their Fiesta so I see no reason why it won’t sell well here but pricing is always an issue. The stylish looks and 40mpg on the highway will get customers in the showroom and on board for a test drive but will the higher than normal price for a small car scare them off? Nobody knows the answer until the rubber hits the road!

As noted, we have two Fiestas in our garage at the moment, a Lime Squeeze Green five-speed manual and a Yellow Blaze six-speed dual-clutch automatic. Both are five-door hatchbacks and decked-out in the top-shelf SES trim package. Both run zero to 60mph in 9.5 seconds and post the best handling, stopping and fuel economy numbers in their class despite being the heaviest and slowest in a straight line.
