2011 Ford Verve spy shots - Click above for high-res image gallery

Eagle-eyed spy shooters for Car Advice in Australia have managed to snap off a series of photos of a new entry-level Ford hatchback that's likely headed to emerging markets like India, Brazil and some areas in Europe. The car seen in these spy shots is clearly disguised as the previous-generation Ford Fiesta, but it's believed that this new machine may actually be a production version of the Ford Verve concept that was first introduced back in 2007 at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

If it ever reaches production, it's likely that the Verve will feature a range of gasoline and diesel engines varying in size from 1.2- to 1.5-liters. According to Car Advice, this new hatchback is expected to get a formal green-light from Ford sometime in mid-2010 en-route to production a few months later. For what it's worth, we don't expect to see this car come Stateside, as America will already have the new Fiesta subcompact followed by a new global Focus. Click here for the rest of the shots.

      Verve = Fiesta

      This is a B-256 (old Fiesta) that has nothing to do with the Verve concept that gave an outlook on the now current Fiesta back in 2007. Maybe the B-256 will get a new life in some markets like India, where they still have Fiestas based on BE-91 (Generation before B-256 Fiesta)

      Augh. Why couldn't they keep the name verve for the fiesta here? The only way I can drive a car called the fiesta is if they make a turbo model.

      What do you drive?

      Autoblog: the Verve concept became the mk7 Fiesta!!!

      This mule is likely testing the underpinnings for the replacement for the European Ford Fusion, which has a slightly higher ride height.

      The verve is the concept of the new fiesta!

      The picture is the second restyling of the old fiesta and it´s only for India and Southamerica.

      Wasn't the fiesta the production Verve?

      "but it's believed that this new machine may actually be a production version of the Ford Verve concept that was first introduced back in 2007 at the Frankfurt Motor Show."

      The production version of the Ford Verve concept is obviously the all-new Fiesta.
      How does slapping on a Kinetic Design face on an previous gen Fiesta make it a production version of the Verve?
