When it was thought that Ford Mondeo or Fusion in Latin America, would disappear from the panorama to make way for a crossover model, recent images of a sedan prototype led us to think that the brand has plans to keep this format in force.
Contrary to what the panorama painted, the first evidence appears on the continuity of the Ford Fusion sedan on the market. Some spy photos captured in Germany would account for this after it was believed that it had been replaced by the crossover model known as Mondeo Evos.
Although there are still several concerns, the images released online reveal a prototype of the Fusion in tests, revealing between the camouflage that it was a type of sedan body. This would rule out the claim about its withdrawal from the market.
The information that was known a few months ago, indicated that this traditional five-door model would end its current generation without a replacement. Instead, a new crossover product was mentioned that would succeed the Fusion sedan, a model that was presented last April.
A new renewed range
Introduced as Ford Evos, the oval brand’s new ‘crossover’ model made its debut in China with sporty styling and technology as benchmarks for the unveiling vehicle. What did not leave the public very happy, is that it would be destined exclusively to the market of that Asian country.
Despite recent spy photos revealing the development of a new model of the Fusion sedan, it remains unclear where it will be sold. Ford withdrew it from the US market last year, in Europe sales levels are very low, China remains a very likely destination.
The hunted prototype manages to reveal some of its features, among which the similarities with the Evos crossover are evident, especially in its front part characterized by a slim front grille, slimmer headlights, and a larger hood.
Everything changes from the B-pillar, where the vehicle begins to acquire the distinctive elements of sedans, more traditional lines, and a roof drop that reaches the trunk line. On the coverings, you can see square shapes behind.
Very notable differences with the Ford Mondeo Evos, which by the nature of its SUV style has more curvilinear and voluminous body shapes. In this way, the American firm would be planting an evolution of its models with more options in each of the ranges.
