Based on the Iosis Concept

At the 2006 Paris Motor Show John Fleming, President and CEO, Ford of Europe promised to develop a stylish new model based on the the Iosis Concept. Fortunately he has kept his promise with the release of the first official styling sketch of the new model. The Kuga features the "kinteic design" first seen in the new Mondeo and appears to have retained much of the styling of the Iosis Concept much to the satisfaction of the image-conscious drivers. The Kuga will go into production early in 2008 at Ford's Saarlouis plant in Germany and will be launched across Europe in the Spring. A preview model will make it's world debut at the 2007 IAA Frankfurt Motor Show this September.
