Ford's contemporary Kinetic Design philosophy seems to be working well in its execution, with its latest models being touted as some of its best ever, in terms of aesthetics. The Ford Fiesta is one example - it proves that one needn't cross exciting looks off the list, even when shopping for a reasonably-priced, compact vehicle.
The Ford Fiesta is also offered as a sedan version. Ford recently released the third generation of its sale success, the Ford Focus - which made a big impact on the market when the first one arrived on the scene, a little while just before the start of the millennium. It is offered in traditional hatchback and sedan formats while a performance-orientated ST version is also in the pipeline.
