No way you can buy a decently equipped Fusion for under $16K new.
I think you are both right.
As you mentioned, the 2010 Fusion would have to be stripped down to compare in price to a more or less top of the line 2011 Fiesta. Jeffyscott is correct in that Ford is aggressively pricing their 2010 Fusions these days; in Canada the discount on Fusions is over $5K. He is also right that Ford will likely not offer a discount on a brand new 2011 Fiesta in the near term. So, if you like the Fusions, this is a great time to buy. If you prefer the Fiestas, you may want to time your purchase to see if the initial demand softens and substantial discounts start appearing.

My Ford store just got in two Fiesta's, and we have a SES model that is $22,000. Yikes....
Yes, it's a lot of technology, but, $22,000 for a sub compact is a lot of money!! You can get a Mazda3 s GT with a little more features for a couple bucks more plus 0% financing.

Those will be a hard sell. Lots of great cars available for $22k.

Truecar.com says that $18275 is the "best price" for an automatic SES and that anything over $18800 (MSRP basically) is overpriced. I can believe that, and have had a couple dealers offer me MSRP and another offering $18300 for that very car.

How about this Fiesta SE Hatchback 5-speed which basically comes with Sync, airbags and power windows + locks, MSRP $16,460. The basic Mazda2 5-speed with more equipment is $14,730.
The Fiesta is rated 28/37 vs the Mazda2 at 29/35 and the Mazda gives up about 20hp, but, still, almost $2,000 is a lot. The difference goes to $1,200 when you take out the Sync.
Also, none of the automatic Fiesta's are rated at 40mpg highway. They are all 38mpg highway. What's up with that?

The missing 2 MPG is due to the fact that NO ONE is ordering the new Ford Fiesta`s with the (SFE) Super Fuel Efficiency package which only includes a tire upgrade to low rolling resistance T rated tires for a huge price bump. Originally that (SFE) was supposed to have included a lot of different items besides the tires but Ford decided to include all as standard equipment except for the energy saving tires and dropped the price down considerably but not enough to justify the tire upgrade. They still advertise the 40 MPG hwy due to the fact that you can order the vehicle with those tires.

I've been hearing about the Fiesta for more than a year, and looking forward to the Spring 2010 launch. I have yet to see one on the street or in a Ford dealership. I believe Ford really did a lousy job marketing this car. What is the holdup? Production problems? The thing is 'heche en Mexico'.
Once again, Ford is "all blow and no go"
