Ford shows Verve

Imagine this, slightly taller and maybe toned down a tad, and you are probably looking at the new Ford Fiesta.

That's what the smart money says about the Ford Verve Concept. Indeed Ford confirms that it points at the new design direction for its future compact cars.

“Bold, even radical, Ford Verve Concept demonstrates the potential of Ford’s kinetic design philosophy to visualise a small car that is a chic and modern, and one that makes an individual statement for a sophisticated, fashion-aware generation,” according to Martin Smith, Executive Director of Design for Ford of Europe.

The front of the Verve is dominated by a large, inverted trapezoidal lower grille. The upper grille on current Ford designs is now little more than a chrome-line slit with the familiar Ford oval at the centre.
