Default Ford Synus Concept

This car has been shown at the LA auto show. The Synus concept is again based on the Fiesta platform but the car has many funky features. Here are some of them:
1. When parked and placed in secure mode, SYNUS deploys protective shutters over the windshield and side glass. Small windows on the flanks and roof are non-opening and bullet-resistant. The rear hatch has no window at all.The car also signals security through its use of a driver-side dial operated combination lock on the B-pillar. The rear hatch is operated via a vault-style four-spoke spinner. Flat glass in a slightly raked windshield furthers the armored-car look of this concept.
2. Another funky feature is a gigantic widescreen liquid crystal display in the tailgate. The largest flat screen LCD ever mounted in a vehicle, it offers a choice of Internet surfing, movie viewing, or, via, cameras, watching what's going on outside the vehicle. In motion, the display works with the cameras to function as the vehicle's rear window: by looking in the rearview mirror the driver can sees a high-definition closed-circuit image of the rearward view.

Check out some pics. Doesn't the Synus look like the Skoda Roomster?

Oh boy!
The interiors are shocking, the rear end looks like the door of a bank vault and overall this car looks like it has come straight out of the LEGO factory. It's really whacky.
Somehow, I don't hate it.
