"But on the way to 60 mph, the U.S. car needs to shift to a tallish 3rd gear, and its 0-60 time sags to 10.0 seconds (or 9.7 seconds with 1 foot of rollout like on a drag strip). Meanwhile the Euro edition gets there in 9.4 seconds (9.0 seconds with rollout), under full power at the top of 2nd gear.
Nevertheless, our 2011 Ford Fiesta claws half of that gap back at the quarter-mile, as it can hold 3rd gear to finish in 17.2 seconds at 80.4 mph, while the European car must grab 3rd gear and then 4th before crossing in 16.9 seconds at 81.6 mph."
