For all that anyone could care - here are a few snippets from the Ford pre release info.

The car is being positioned against the Barina, Jazz, Echo and Mazda 2 in what they describe as the core market represented by trusted local brands.

The segment represents 69,000 sales per annum of which 57% (39,000) are from the core sub segment.

Barina holds around 7%, Jazz 12%, Mazda 2 6% (climbing) and the Echo 22% of the total segment.

There will be an LX in 3 or 5 door, a Zetec in 3 door only and a Ghia in 5 door only.

Engine for all models is a 74 kW / 146 Nm 1.6 Duratec 16V.

Target sales are 600 per month after a warm up period. This would result in roughly 10 % of the segment and 18.5 % of the sub segment.

Model mix is a typical mish mash of guesses as follows:

LX 3 Door - 42% (64 % manuals)
LX 5 Door - 21% (66 % manuals)
Zetec 3 Door - 28% (82 % manuals)
Ghia 5 Door - 9% (45 % manuals)

Buyer mix - Private 70 %, Business 25 %, Govt 4 %, Rental 1%.

Will do a quick comparison with the competition later but pricing estimates which put the base model at mid 16k won't help.

cheers

Be very interesting to see just how well the Fiesta will sell. Give it the usual warm up period of 6 months & watch the "delaer incentives" kick in..
