Doubt they would sell this as the Fusion.
But this car is definitely the Fiesta as it is sold in most markets.
Hope it comes with attractive prices and a diesel option. Then it would surely be rocking in sales.
The Fiesta and the Fusion are based on this cars platform if i am not mistaken.

If they put a TDCI in like 1.2L or 1.3L the mileage considering the reputation of the current 1.4 TDCI must be mind blowing! But how much hassles a hatch owner has to go thru in servicing is the question

Nice scoop Benny...looks like a cross between fiesta and fusion and the head lamp and grill look like Honda Jazz..Good that ford is thinking of getting in an international car rather than an india only car. Hope they provide with good engine options too may be even a 1.6?

Benny, Did you take these pics yourself...?

The tyres of car in the second pic look very jagged. And there are few other cues which indicates that the pics may not be real...

Yes, they were taken my me. I did some post-processing work on the pic to make the car look a lot more clearer/darker, however you may want to call it. I have the originals with me, as well.

Being really busy with work the past two days, i tried a quick PS job on the same.

On close observation the name under the badging did read as Fiesta.
The test drivers were in no mood to hide the car, maybe they didnt have much choice being stuck in traffic.

When the thread said small car --- I thought maybe it might be the Ka!

I'm disappointed to find that it isn't...
