The first near-production representation of Ford Europe's new kinetic design styling direction, introduced with Iosis concept in Frankfurt, hit Paris this morning in the form of the Mondeo X concept. Ford says the new Mondeo — which the concept hearkens — is crucial to its line, sharing architecture with the S-Max and Galaxy, and will be built in Genk, Belgium. It's also quite hot in person, though comes off somewhat like a Mazda6 clone in the photos. Don't be fooled.

DISCUSSION

To me, the Mondeo is a handsome looking car, with a few gaudy details (Lamborghini Gallardo wheels, fussy LED taillights, weirdly resolved foglights) I'm sure many people will say "Bring it over, I'll buy it." But, it wouldn't fly in America because pundits would claim that it's not "American" enough to be sold in the U.S. Instead, we get the very vanilla Fusion, with its only bits of flair being a goofy grill, and (again) fussy, non-LED, taillights.
