Goes on sale in Europe next year.

Ford unveiled the seventh generation Ford Fiesta at a "Go Further" event in Cologne, Germany last week. It's due in Europe next year, but Ford may choose not to bring it to the U.S. market.

A company source has revealed to Carscoops that the new generation Ford Fiesta is for Europe, Middle East and Africa.

On the same matter, a Ford North American spokesperson, with a same tone, said: “We were talking about the new Fiesta for Europe and MEA yesterday. We’ll have more to say about other markets at a later date.”

The statements also sound as if Ford is just still finalizing details for the U.S.-spec version. As it has been in the past, compact cars targeted for Europe have a hard time making up their mind to go to the USA. Last year reports emerged on Ford working on the B500 project, a premium compact hatchback (and top hats) for emerging markets, which this year was trashed. Ford currently doesn't appear to have a hatchback of the Fiesta's size in development today to launch in the USA.

Reports emerged last year of the Ford 'B500' compact car project for emerging markets, which then was said to be cancelled.

The 2017 Ford Fiesta will be offered in Titanium, ST-Line, Vignale and Active grades when sales in the UK are set to commence in Summer (June-August 2017).
