Ford to give its Fiesta another try in Japan
Ford's Fiesta compact (shown) is returning to Japan despite failing a decade ago. Ford has struggled in Japan and stopped selling the Fiesta after selling just 2,800 of them from 2004 through 2007. The Fiesta is one of Ford's top-selling models worldwide. "This is for those who might want a different kind of compact," says Japan Ford President Toshio Morita. "Our business in Japan will become stronger." The Fiesta goes on sale in Japan starting Feb. 1.
