The new compact utility vehicle is based on Ford’s latest global platform for small cars in which are built the new Fiesta and B-MAX. The frame is configured to provide excellent levels of comfort, flexibility and good dynamic characteristics. From our experience of vehicles based on the Fiesta platform, we were pretty sure of the outcome on the road before our first contact with the car in Frankfurt.
