The Fiesta-Van Cometh…

Take one Ford Fiesta. Add four inches to the length, and pop up the roof for some extra headroom. Add a pair of small sliding rear doors, and you’ve got the forthcoming Fiesta B-Max. With Ford soft-pedaling its C-Max plans for the US market, don’t expect this tiny van to ever come to the US… at least unless gas prices go crazy.

    I ♥♥♥ high gas prices.

    Looks great--just like a Fiesta, but with windows. I'll take one, and the trailer too!

    I recently rented a car here in Germany and was given a very cool Volkswagen Golf Plus, which is basically a van-like, taller Golf. We threw in two road bicycles and piles of luggage and there was still a lot of room. It was lots of fun to drive but when I reported this story to my car-enthusiast German teacher, he said that driving a Golf Plus adds twenty years to the driver's perceived age. Apparently oldsters like them because they are easy to get in and out of. It is sad we will not get this Fiesta in North America.
