Good news – the Fusion will finally be replaced!

Ford will be showing a concept Ford B-MAX mini MPV at the 2011 Geneva Auto Show in March next year. As hinted by the B-MAX name, it will be a segment smaller than the Focus-based C-MAX and will be built on the Ford Fiesta’s B-segment platform. It’s competitors in Europe will be vehicles such as the Opel Meriva (apparently Europe’s best selling minivan) and the Kia Venga. The concept will go into production in early 2012.

The new Fiesta-based Ford B-MAX Concept will probably send the seriously aging Ford Fusion (not the American sedan – the name is used for a different model in Europe) into retirement – it looks really outdated and lost in a sea of new Kinetic Design Fords, which is no surprise as it has been on sale since 2002!
