Default 2018 Ford Fiesta (my version)

Did a quick chop showing how I would have designed the 2018 Fiesta.


Less wedge-like, A-pillars pushed back, shorter overhangs and a longer wheelbase (for increased interior space).

I also posted this at Ford Inside News.

The Fiesta is wedgy (sic) but it's an inept wedge. This is classier. I'd NOT have the tail lights wrap around as much. You can really tell the new Fiesta is the old Fiesta. This would have been rather dressy and handsome.

Thanks, one of my goals was to make it slightly classier/more premium but still look a bit like a Fiesta.

Yes, the new 2018 Fiesta is basically a reskin with some upgrades thrown in.
I did this comparison on fordinsidenews where I overlaid the new Fiesta over the outgoing model.

*I used the 2017 euro version for the comparison which explains the shorter bumpers, the new 2018 euro Fiesta has longer bumpers like the current 2017 USDM model.

I also like that you shrank the HLs
tho
would like if the rear third was less wagony - a bit like the E-Pace

I like this a lot. The proportions are in line with where the segment is going and it looks more upscale than the real thing. Maybe the only things I'd change are a smoother kink in the rear-quarter window and keeping the small front quarter window instead of a plastic triangle like the Fusion.

Thanks.

Separate quarter windows I think are not needed because the A-pillars were pushed back in my design. Like the Fusion/Mondeo, it has quarter windows attached to the window frames.
Unlike the current Fiesta & New Euro Fiesta, it has no need for a fat vertical post that creates a blind spot.
