Prototypes of the Ford Mondeo facelift that have been on test have started to drop some camo since the last time we saw them. Our spy photographers sighted this blue unit on test wearing Fusion badging, which is what the car is called in North America.

The front end still has heavy camo on it, but we can now see the outline of the front bumper design which seems to verify the leaked image that surfaced back in August – the previously round fog lamps have now been replaced with either rectangular ones for what appears to be a low spec model, or L-shaped ones for what appears to be a higher spec, that are shaped to fit the front bumper design.

The camo is much lighter on the rear, revealing reshaped tail lamps that have been extended to meet the number plate recess – the pre-facelift car had a small body coloured piece in between them which is now gone. This gives the rear end of the Mondeo/Fusion a wider and lower look.

Other than that, the side profile of the updated D-segment car generally looks the same as the pre-facelift version. Of course, there could be some refreshes to the interior as well which we can’t observe from these spyshots. We’re expecting to see this Mondeo facelift unveiled sometime next year.
