IMHO I feel that the prevailing Fiesta looks much better than this 2010 model.
The car from the side angle does look like the Ford Mondeo as seen in Casino Royale

the color in the picture doesn't match the power looks of the car. Should look WOW in black in flesh and blood.Nice design .

This one looks quite good, a bit muscular at that. however the alloys are all too similar to the linea. lets wait and watch what impact this car will have on indian markets if launched.

Default Yuck- I wouldn't want this Ford!

Sorry but i think you're going a bit over the board by comparing the car with designs of 4 cars. I mean lets give Ford a bit of a respite. IMO the car does'nt look as bad as some of the other cars you compared it to.

I dont like the rear at all.
Wonder if it will be a success with the ANHC out and linea coming.

It's kinda nice - first Ford sub-compact with some flash in design. The Ikon and current Fiesta are way too staid and the Ikon starts showing it's age pretty fast.

To me the design does not looks inspiring and any way 'NEW'. Not impressed!

Its high GC indicates that this was designed for developing markets primarily. Bulbous designs seem to be the order of the day for some reason - not good!

May be, Ford wanted to make it look a bit muscular..but err, it looks a little fat actually..overall, it is kinda ok, i guess..
Interesting to see what powertrains would be made available..1.6 TDCI should come in, i guess.

With a bigger and broader tyres it should look better.It will take on the SX4.But Ford branding can be an issue unless price it correctly. To beat Maruti you need to outdo and not just match-it up.ANHC although belong to the same segment, but does not belong to the same genre.

This car looks cute and compact! It may have some other cars' looks, but how many cars in this era have real-original looks?

Downright Ugly (even probably D'zire or Logan looks better then this) is my first impression after seeing the pictures. I hope they keep the current Fiesta shape then this thing.
