If the test is crossing Indian speed breakers / Parallel parking, i'd have to agree ...

haha ! That sure was good. I know the new fiesta is a good car but I think ford did this as a joke.
I'm sure that Fiesta didn't sleep that night and was still trembling og the lambo's exhaust note.

Hilarious one, but this is like comparing apples & oranges & that's the reason its really funny. I think the fun lies in the point that Ford wanted to convey on turning radius, cargo space, push start by comparing a top sports car versus a street car.

Do you know why the Fiesta was faster? The scared look on its face tells it all: because it wanted to run away from the raging bull !
Then again, it sure would beat the bull or any other supercar in really tight spaces. Remember one TopGear episode where Clarkson outruns the Corvette inside a shopping mall with a Fiesta?
I think they wanted to show that the Fiesta was better than a $200k car, in terms of practicality and manoeuverability. Funny video nevertheless.

I just cant stop laughing, Ford...i didnt know you would do such a comparison to sell your car...They even might compare this to a space shuttle if Nasa had given them one with the turning radius comparison and a reverse gear.

That was exactly my thought. The fiesta driver would have wet his pants, had the lambo driver done a powerslide.

The Fiesta lost a quarter mile drag by a YEAR, and ford thinks they can compensate by providing a car which has a cap-less fuel filler and side mirror indicators!

Just marketing gimmic gone overboard. Anyway, a person who buys a Lambo doesn't choose it for it's practicality. The funniest part is "What if the Lambo can smoke Fiesta in acceleration? It doesn't have turn indicators on the ORVM"
