OK, got an answer from up the food chain and while it may not let you do EXACTLY what you want to do, it certainly served the purpose of letting the folks who need to know that there's something the comparison probably could do...
We apologize for the trouble you are having comparing a 2011 Ford Fiesta with an automatic transmission to other models. Unfortunately our comparator tool only allows you to compare vehicles at the style level, and the automatic transmission on the Fiesta is an option.
While you will not be able to specify an automatic transmission for the Fiesta in the comparator tool, you can still price out the vehicle with this option:
1) Select a style
2) Click the red Price With Options Button
3) In the list of available options, check the box for the 6-Speed Automatic Transmission
3) Click the red TMV pricing report button
Like I said, maybe not the answer you would have ideally liked, but it moves the ball forward!

Very much appreciate you taking the time to look into this. At least I understand why it doesn't work now. Of course, Edmunds could enter the Fiesta with an automatic as a style level. As it is, someone looking to compare a Fiesta to any other comparable car in it's class might get the impression that Fiestas only come with manuals. Kind of unfairly puts the Fiesta at a disadvantage.
But hey, what do I know? I've been known to be wrong before.

I'm pretty sure that it wasn't done to put any car at a disadvantage in a comparison but thanks for pointing it out. Having all those extra eyes checking out every little corner of the site is how we find out about things that might not have turned out as expected!
#349 of 636 Interior choices for 2011 Ford Fiesta back again!
Apr 16, 2010 (7:14 am)
The previous elimination of interior choices on the Ford Fiesta Build and Order site have been corrected. Both the cloth "light stone & charcoal" and well as the "black stone & charcoal" on the SE edition as well as the Leather option on the SES are now once again available. Must have been a site glitch.

The Light Stone fabric is what I ordered on my Fiesta SE 5 dr Hatchback in Candy Red Metallic. I hope it looks airy and bright with the added Power Moon Roof I ordered. I`m so tired of drab tired black interiors. Wish they had offered a "red" cloth interior option. They only offered Red interior for one year (1994) in the Mustang Convertible which I ordered in the fall of 93` in bright Rio Red exterior paint. Hard to find matching interior and exterior colors anymore.

I thought it was strange that they didn't have a red accent interior option for the cloth. A red accent would have looked much better with most of the Fiesta's exterior colors verses the blue.

Never thought of that possibility. Still would have opted for the Light Stone Grey/Charcoal combination. For me adding the "red" highlite unto the Black cloth would have still left the interior too dark for me.
#355 of 636 Press embargo ends Monday!

Get ready for a bunch of Fiesta reviews on Monday. Automotive journalists have been testing the NA car for the last few weeks and can publish their data on the 26th. I'm guessing Edmunds will have their impressions ready to publish also. I really hope MPG numbers are as good as Ford has been saying. If you surf the web you can find some photos already released of the actual NA Fiesta.
