    Karthik, if there will not be an improvement in the rear leg room, the new fiesta might as well sell as a coup. No really. Room that trivial will not need dedicated doors. At least the car will have the USP of being the only Indian coupe. after all what do u know, we might have got used to limping to the rear seats because of the 3rd row of seats in our MPVs 😉
