would end up seeming to be a Fusion replacement even if named as fiesta hatch xyz.

this is likely to affect it's chances of succes out here.

The model will be revealed in the Frankfurt auto show next week and the Indian launch in Feb-2010.

That's Ford's new small car for the Indian market, to be launched in January 2010. No details available yet.

I doubt about Focus frank!!! Even i think its the small car from Ford. I saw the renderings of the Ford's small car- found it to plain jane ! Lets see how Ford prices it and what engine they give.

Spotted this car on NH45 outside my collage.

--> This car is not the same spotted on page 1 , The tail lights are not mounted on the D-pillar like the previous gen fiesta, but on the boot !

And this car is definately a hatch, notice the roof mounted spoiler and stop lamp !!

Many are going to think of it as a replacement to the fusion...

I wish they brought in the new European Fiesta.

Yes.But that would have been more expensive than the current Fiesta sedan!
So its not worth getting it here.Ford's looking at maximum profit from minimum investment here,considering this car's gonna be based on an old platform.Even the sheet metal will be the same on the sides!
They'll do what they have done to the Ikon here.Old wine in a new bottle.

I am sure, this diesel version is going to be one big hit if priced well!
