Original Mk7 for sure. That front end looks terrible.

Facelift for sure. The new front makes the old one look cheap and plastic-y. The new shape lights and sculptured bonnet looks much more aggressive and modern.

I'm all for more aggressive styling and think the next ground up fiesta will look great but this just looks like they have shoe horned the new mondeo front onto the fiesta and left it looking like a badly proportioned cut and shut.

I love the design concept of the face lift but I hate the execution. The new mondeo looks really nice but you can tell the rest of the car was not designed to take this front.

This new facelift means that almost no exterior components will be swappable between mk7 and mk7.5 not even the grille or Ford badge.

I'll still be getting an ST I think depending on spec (anyone know if the rear suspension is independent on it rather than a huge bar?). Seen a lot of hate on it for only having a low bhp rating, but let's face it those ecoboost engines are magic and the car is pretty lightweight and has easily one of the best chasis' out there. Just a shame about the front end, maybe someone somewhere will come up with something to make it look a little nicer. Besides, Pumaspeed/Mountune I' sure will have some tasty add-ons. Pumaspeed themselves have said hold off on doing MK7 mods til' the ST comes out :P

I like the MK7 facelift, however it reminds me of a basking shark, and for that reason, id stick with standard Mk7! :)

Looking at that facelift grill, I can only think of a fish. Is it called a Guppy ?
Like the colour though.

I prefer the original Mk7, the grille looks more like a Pug 207. The biggest plus will be the ecoboost engine in a Fiesta :D, will probably wait and see what the Zetec S looks like.

Love the facelift AND the ecoboost engine. I'm looking to chop my diesel in against a petrol next year.
