A large part of why the FiST is so good is the price point. That's the reason I bought one over all the other sport compact hatches I shopped. Nothing comes close in terms of performance per dollar in the 2015 model year. If I'm a shopper spending 27-29K instead of 22K then then suddenly there are lot more options with the same performance per dollar value without some of the shortcomings of the Fiesta platform, and the Fiesta is no longer the slam dunk it was at 22K. Also the one ford policy isn't as stringent as it would have you believe. First, it's an executive policy that came about during a global recession, and will change based on market performance and reaction to different products. Ford won't spend a bunch of money to safety certify and emissions test different drivetrain combinations if they aren't sure it will sell in a given market. And I see very little parity in what is available from Ford in the EU compared to what is available in the US regardless of the one ford policy. While yes the Mustang is available in the EU it is only available in 4 different body/drivetrain configurations compared to the 12 domestically. And no the 16 GT350 isn't going to be available in the UK. If (and it's a really big if no matter how you look at it) Ford brings a fiesta RS here I'd be really happy, I really love small fast cars. I won't hold my breath though. There is only so much room for low margin Halo cars in any manufacturers lineup, and a lot more Americans will buy a special Mustang than a special Fiesta.
