Too many curves and contours. Is that one calls as muscular?
Any scoop on what’s under the hood?

Damn, looks like a futuristic Hyundai Verna to me. What was Ford thinking? I hope its a Chinese-exclusive model and not making its way toward India anytime in the future...the Ikon & current Fiesta are pretty good looking in their own right.

The side profile is too busy. Looks like another case of overzealous designers trying to implement every design idea brought to the table.

And by the way this doesnt look like a ford, does it ?

The Verve was a stunning concept. Somewhere between concept and production stage, Ford design lost it. The boot simply does not fit in with the otherwise swoopy design. A lesson they ought to learn from the brand new Honda City.

The rear lamps with all the unnecessary detailing makes it look toy-ish.

The rear looks very Mazda-ish. Did someone from Mazda design just switch firms?

I rather prefer the clean and sophisticated lines of the current Fiesta than this one. This one looks like an amalgamation of many cars!!

Current Fiesta is one of the best lookers in the lot and the new one would be taking many steps backwards.. even the ikon looks good..

I guess I like the marriage between the New Gen Mondeo and the Old Gen Focus (sedan). The wheel arches are a bit overdone may be. But nothing that can't be helped by a fatter rubber.

Good lines all around. Naughty, hungry and cuddly all the same time. Brilliant.

Default what was that!

It looks, well, YUCK!

Blech! What an awful, awful looking car! I dare say even the DZire looks decent compared to this and that's saying a lot!

Indian Fiesta 1.6S rocks. Hopefully this will not come to India, as historically the Fiesta in China/Brazil are always different from ours.

I'm wondering why Ford have gone horribly wrong with their rear end styling these days.
