This is the current Mazda 2 subcompact.
Here is the European Ford Fiesta.
Which would you want as a new Ford subcompact in the US? Go to Ford's site and compare specs and styling, then come back here and let me know which you would buy. I checked the stats myself and it seems that they are using the same engines, and other specs are so close, that it seems that they are the same car under the skin. My question then is this, which came first? Is the Fiesta only a reskinned Mazda2 or vice versa?
