Ford Iosis X conceptTue, 03 Oct 2006 00:00:00 -0700
With an abundance of small SUVs entering the European market, Ford has been conspicuously absent from this segment, something that the Iosis X will hope to quell. Using the same 'kinetic design' theme as the Iosis concept from last year, the Iosis X puts a coupe-like window graphic and roofline upon thick sills, similar in this respect to the Opel Antara concept. But while Opel will have their model on the road imminently, those wanting the Ford equivalent will have to wait until early 2008 for the forms to be toned down and put in showrooms.
The project is the latest work of Ford's European design studios, based in Cologne, Germany, the team lead by Executive Design Director Martin Smith.
