Spy Shots: facelifted Ford Fusion seen partly naked in China
Published on March 31, 2015 by Joey Wang
The very first Spy Shots showing the facelifted Ford Fusion in China. The facelift includes a new grille, new bumpers, new headlights, new taillights, and a new boot lid. The facelifted Ford Fusion will debut on the Shanghai Auto Show later this month and launch on the Chinese car market in H2.
The Ford Fusion is called Ford Mondeo in China. It is manufactured by the Changan-Ford joint venture. Price starts at 179.800 yuan and ends at 265.800 yuan ($28.979 – 42.840). Engines: 181hp 1.5 turbo, 203hp 2.0, and a 242hp 2.0 turbo. All engines will continue in the facelifted Fusion/Mondeo and price will remain about the same.
A much more tidy design here. New taillights and a new chrome strip between them. Rear deck is now flat with an integrated spoiler; the tiny ‘fins’ are gone. Bumper is new too, again a simpler design with the exhaust exits at each far end. Fog lights have moved to the main units.
