2010 Ford Fiesta - Click above for high-res image gallery

Come December, we'll finally get an official look at the U.S.-spec Ford Fiesta at the LA Auto Show. Yes, yes... we've seen the Fiesta in a hundred different colors and shapes already, but those have all been either European or Chinese models, and the U.S. version of the car will have a slightly different look as necessitated by our federal crash requirements.

Don't expect any major changes to the Fiesta's basic shape, however. We may get mildly enlarged bumpers front and rear, and those will likely have a small impact on the car's fascias, but overall the changes should be very minor. While an official sale date has not yet been announced, the Fiesta should show up in Ford dealerships sometime in early 2010.

According to Ford, more than 50,000 "hand-raisers" have expressed interest in the small car since its Fiesta Movement kicked off back in May. Perhaps an even more noteworthy statistic is that 97 percent of those parties don't currently own a Ford. Hit the jump for the official press release.

Sweet ... anyone going to the show to check it out??

Pretty sure it's still going to be called a Fiesta in the US, but I'm not sure if that'll be different in your location.
