The cover of the latest issue of Auto Express in the UK features one of the first renderings of the next-generation Ford Mondeo, which as we all know will be basically the same as Ford's future replacement for the Fusion in the States. If this drawing proves accurate, it looks like the new midsize models will combine a lot of what we see in the 2012 Focus at the front end with a greenhouse and rear stance that actually looks more like the current Taurus.
The Fusion was Ford's first model to adopt the automaker's now ubiquitous three-bar grille design, but this rendering finally dispenses with that look in favor of something a little more Kinetic. We don't know if the production model will go this way or perhaps use the modified perforated version adopted by the latest Taurus and Explorer.

The new Mondeo and Fusion will probably debut sometime later in 2011 and come to market early in 2012 as a 2013 model.

      that car looks pretty great . it looks like the new focus ans new Taurus combined . pretty kool look! Ford is getting better with each new design !

      First Hyundai/KIA kept knocking out great designs AND NOW FORD IS DOING THE SAME.

      I thing those 3 are coming up with the best designs of any manufacture

      Looks nice, but meaningless at this point. And rendered speculation is about as healthy as rendered fat.

        I wouldn't expect Americans to be that familiar with Auto Express, but they have a history of producing rendered speculations which are pretty close to the eventual product. Their renderings of Ford of Europe products have always been especially good - I point out the Ka mk2 and Fiesta mk6 which were very accurate indeed, and the Focus mk1 which they dre up in the mid 90s wasn't far off the mark either.

      Looks a lot like the 2010 Legacy.. not a terrible thing.

        True.

        You are always right.


        how about kinetically fluidic?
        • 4 Years Ago
        False.

        Hyundai is fluidic, not kinetic.

        I'm glad you like the 'Stang...so do I...but what does that have to do with an article about a rendering of the 2013 Fusion?!?
