The sixth generation Ford Fiesta made its debut in 2007 at the International Auto Show in Germany. In Canada, Ford ran a marketing campaign offering a demo vehicle for one week use and each driver would write reviews on the Ford Fiesta, the idea was borrowed from a similar campaigned in Chicago where they offered commuters a chance to demo the new Fiesta.
