Over in Europe, when drivers hear the words "Ford Fusion" they get a very different image from the four-door mid-sized sedan sold in North America. The Euro Fusion is a tall wagon, mini-mpv based on the previous generation Fiesta small car. Now that the new Fiesta is rolling off the assembly lines, the Fusion is set to be replaced as well. The new model will follow the nomenclature of Ford's other MPVs with the name B-Max. The B-Max is expected to debut in 2010 with styling that takes on the best of the current Euro-Ford kinetic design. The back seats are likely to have the ability to slide fore-aft to adjust the balance between cargo and people space. The B-Max may also be the debut application for a new 1.0L four cylinder EcoBoost engine with power ratings from 89-108 hp. The B-Max ecoNetic will likely get the 1.6L TDCi diesel from the Fiesta. There's no indication yet that the B-Max will come to the U.S. and change our preception of the Fusion.
