Ford Fusion — mini MPV, manufactured by Ford Motor Company and developed by its European unit. Distinctive features: low price, high safety, high ground clearance, spacious interior. The car was produced in Germany, the factory in Cologne. It was based on the Ford Fiesta. In 2005 the auto was restyled, which changed front and rear bumpers, mouldings, lighting and design of the front panel.
The developers tried to emphasize that they had created car, which absorbed the properties of a hatchback of a golf class and "parquet" SUV. The design of the car was aggressive, because of the wide mouldings in the bumpers and sides of car, Ford Fusion headlights, unpainted body-color, high clearance, and a more serious (compared to the Fiesta) design. The model has a rather large luggage compartment (337 l).
