I think this is a downgrade, looking at the pics, the old fiesta is much better, looking sporty.

A red colored car, being identified as Fiesta, and yes, it looked like one when i saw it's OVRMs. With strange headlights.

Oh Boy, that thread is missing there.
Below is the picture in question:

Since it has been removed from the source forum, let us wait till we get confirmation that it is indeed the updated Fiesta. There has to be a reason that it was taken off the website in a flash.

MaserQ,
IIRC that's not the new fiesta, but one modified by DC for Ford.

IMO if looked carefully the bumper, fogs & head lamps, it looks like a modified LAURA.

but, in some way its broadly looking like the current Mustang too

Just checked the DC website. That is indeed the modified fiesta done up by him. Theres a reason it was removed from the autocar forums.
Here's a better pic of the same car -

It was called the Ford Fiesta In-Xs. Look around and I am sure you will find it on T-BHP.

You are right, guys.

Thats the car! Yes, now after it is shown in DC website, makes more sense why it was removed from there. And, it _does_ look like a DC job.

Earlier when I saw the headlamps, I was stunned! I had liked it anyways.

That's a new wheelcap design on the Ikon. Looks similar to the one which came on the Fusion. I dont see any other design changes on it, possibly the headlamps though.

@Amtak, the third brake light was always at the same position as you see in the spy pic posted by LC.

The flared wheel archs and the rear makes this one look like a mini Mondeo.

Ford is watching this forum I suppose. Today the test vehicles were parked little deeper inside their factory rather than near the side gate as it was previously. Need bigger zoom to get the spy pics!

If FORD is indeed watching this thread, they better know what is expected of them
