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.

If they have been successful in Europe, then maybe they would not hesitate to release their next production in the European market again.. Even if they covered the wagon, it’s figure shows what it looks like..

I don’t know if its 4 and 6 cylinder engines of this one, can give a better performance of this one and for the fact that it was from Ford, I would surely be expecting to be so impressive. smiley

I wonder if why they still want to cover the front of this wagon but anyway, I will surely wait for this one though I noticed that it only had a simple platform but I am hoping that interior of this one will not disappoint me even on its figure performance.
