From Autoblog Spanish we have info about a gussied up Fiesta Trail that Ford is showing at the Brazilian auto show in São Paulo. Looks like Fiat and Chevy had extreme CUVs on display so Ford had to have one, too. It slapped on some Outback-like cladding and jacked up the regular Fiesta Trail, slipping some aggressive alloys under the fenders.

A new, more muscular front end with new lights and grille, side sills and new exclusive rear lights complete the look. Developed by Ford's Center of Design in Camaçari, Brazil, it uses a raised suspension to help accomodate those oversized alloy rims. If reaction to the prototype is favorable, it could reach the market, although with slight changes.

      Looks an awful like the SX4. I mean, everything but the blue oval. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

      It's kinda cute in a girly sort of way. A nice graduation gift for over-privileged and under-stressed teenagers.

      I think they bought a Vibe and put a Ford oval on it.

      Nice car...seems like a car people in the US would actually buy.

      LMAO!! "Aztacky".. That's right up there with "Toyota service hugs"
      I guess crossovers will be the new minivans, they all look alike...

      Toyota Matrix + Ford Focus = that thing

      Wow, it looks like Ford jacked up the suspension on a Toyota Matrix and replaced the T with a blue oval...

      Over all not bad. I don't like plastic cladding. Paint it the same color as the car and it would be cool.

      jp.......I love that: Aztacky.

      I guess I'll have to go to Ford's website and see what a production Fiesta Trail looks like. Actually, I've considered once or twice buying a Focus wagon and "cutomizing" it to look like a mini-SUV or Vibe-fighter. I don't think I would've gone with the charcoal plastic cladding used on the Trail, though.

      Imagine this (slightly?) more aggressive front styling on a Focus.
