Spy Shots: Ford Fiesta-based crossover mule – click above for high-res image gallery

Ford is enjoying early success with the Fiesta here in the United States, but in Europe, where the Fiesta has been on sale for years, it's time to start thinking about the future. Our friendly neighborhood snappers at CarPix have scored spy shots of what appears to be a high-riding Fiesta-based crossover designed to slot in below the Kuga crossover in the automaker's European lineup.

A Fiesta crossover might sound a little odd at first take, but when it comes to production, it should be roughly the same size as a Nissan Juke or Mini Countryman. That in mind, don't rule out the possibility of the Fiesta CUV making its way to the U.S. Expect to see a variety of powertrains offered for European customers including some EcoBoost options, and both front- and all-wheel drive configurations should be available. Check out our gallery of high-res pics before to get a closer look at the forthcoming Blue Oval tall boy.

      I heard about this from a dealer a while ago when buying my focus.. might be the same thing.. they were thinking of making a B-Max to replace the fusion which i believe has ceased production.. could this possibly be it?

      You know...not everything needs to be made into a Crossover. The car is already brilliant in its own right
        • 4 Years Ago
        Tell that to BMW.

        It has just been announced that Ford are doing a Crossover of this comment
      • 4 Years Ago
      I shall call it the Ford Fiesta Grande
        • 4 Years Ago
        Ford Fiesta Grande Supreme and Taco Bell Livery.

      I think it's a mule for the next EcoSport.

      Here in Brazil we have this car which is largely based on the last-gen Fiesta:

      Once again, this is not a Crossover! just a jacked up car.
      • 4 Years Ago
      A good idea with market potential.

      Probably a decent styling indicator of the next Escape/Kuga for the US.

      This doesn't, neccesarily, have to be a new, unique CUV based on Fiesta's platform. It could, just as well, be some kind of "cross-country" version of Fiesta, just like VW makes Polo Cross and Renault with Dacia Sandero Stepway. Base models of Sandero (James May's favorite car ;) ) and Polo are all in same class and size as Ford Fiesta

        Ford has(d) the Fusion in Europe (no relation with the N.A. sedan) that is a jacked up last gen Fiesta. I saw quite a few while visiting so it must have sold in decent numbers. This is probably the replacement.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Agreed. It is most likely the new European Fusion.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Not everything needs a crossover. The Fiesta is already a good car, there is no need for a crossover.
      • 4 Years Ago
      B-Max?
      • 4 Years Ago
      This is probably the next (European) Fusion, which is basically just a jacked-up Fiesta.
