The next generation Ford Mondeo - sold as the Fusion on the US market - was first caught testing as a sedan, but our spy photographers have recently spotted the wagon version testing in the snowy Alps in Europe. It’s still not clear if the wagon version will be offered in the U.S., but in Europe it’s the most sold variant of the Mondeo.
Despite the camouflage covering the wagon, you can easily notice that the next Mondeo will be borrowing design elements from the Evos Concept launched at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The new model is set for an official release in 2013-2014, so there’s still no word on what will be hiding under the hood. That being said, it will probably carry the usual array of 4- and 6-cylinder engines, with a hybrid version popping up shortly after the release as well.
Will this generation be the one to convince Americans that wagons are the way to go? Probably not, but the Cadillac CTS-V Wagon may open the doors enough for other wagons to benefit.
