Very nice, quite interesting and well done. I might nit pick at the teensy fender vents, which a quickly becoming and hackneyed stylistic gimmick these days, but the overall execution is quite good. I only wish Ford of North America were able to combine such refined excitement and quality design in its products.

Nice vehicle. They'll sell all they make in the states.

My prediction.

I really dislike crossovers. Too low to be any good off road, and they look silly on the road. You can also bet that the thing will retail for a minimum of $40k over here

Um, hell no. If it is brought here (either imported or built domesticly), it will likely be replacing the Escape and priced similarly. Considering it's AWD has has fairly short overhangs, it would probably have the same sort of off-road capacity as the Escape as well.

Yes, and I recall that the pricing in the two markets is tailroed to the market, not each other. I'd expect 'round £14,995 for the Kuga, which is around 30k $USD.

15,000 euros for crossover like this is pretty low price.

I imagine we will see more styling like the Iosis Concept!

For example, the new Mazda6 seems mighty Iosis-ish if you ask me.

The current S-max, which this would replace cost about £19k, this will cost more.

If you can buy that car here for £15k (the cost of a well kitted Focus), I would be very surprised.

I don't agree that this would replace the S-max or be priced similarly. The S-max is an EUCD(mondeo) platform 7-seater, this is a 5-seater based on the C1(focus) platform. If anything, its a beefier C-Max. I think £15k base price is what we'll see.

I like it. The interior looks pretty amazing. Love the "piping" and is that suede on the seats?

Too bad it's not slated for North America. I guess the brain dead beancounters in Dearborn must like red ink or something.
