2013 Ford Fiesta reveals Fusion-like face

And the Ford Fiesta spy shots continue to pour in...

First we saw the hatchback undergoing cold weather testing. Then just last week, our spy shooters caught the sedan testing in Germany. But now we've got the best view yet of the mid-lifecycle Fiesta refresh due in 2014.

Caught in Michigan wearing only light applique camouflage, this Fiesta sedan prototype looks like a shrunken Ford Fusion. Except that the relative size of the Aston Martin-esque grille is much larger on the subcompact Ford, combining with the new headlight design to give the 2014 Fiesta the look of a carnivorous, prehistoric fish. Let's just hope the sedan doesn't look as awkwardly narrow and high-rumped as the current car.

Rumors that the Dunkleosteus Fiesta may come to the U.S. with a turbocharged, direct-injected three-cylinder EcoBoost engine persist. The new 1.0-liter engine is said to pack 125 horsepower and allow the Fiesta to hit 55 mpg, but we'll take that miles per gallon figure with a few grains of salt. Other speculation involves the triple also getting an electric supercharger that could boost power to 175 horsepower.

An Aston Martin front end on a Ford Fiesta. Who'd have thunk it?

Nothing wrong with a corporate grill. Besides Ford still owns a stake in Aston
