got to love the comments posted under that article:

Quote:
This is essentially the same size as the Buick Encore, the Chevy Trax, the Juke...why isn't Ford seriously considering selling it here? Someone asleep at the wheel of product development?
Quote:
Why is this so far fetched? As mentioned in other comments, the Trax/Encore are sold here, and FCA has entered the fray with its Renegade/500x twins. There are a lot of people that like inexpensive vehicles and a lot of people who like to butts more than 2 inches off of the pavement. Why not give the people what they want. This is a lot less of a niche vehicle than it looks.
and then we have this guy...

The best part is, they could call it the "Faptor".

Ford has the Fiesta and c-max, with those models in the north american market they probably can't justify bringing this over for now.

Nonsense... the Juke, Soul, TRAX, Renegade and HRV all have their roots in their respective manufacturers small cars program and there is little to no overlap...

I won't say they NEED to be in the segment, but they certainly don't NEED to miss the boat...

exactly
they just need to do enough to appeal to the same crowd of folks that would consider a compact and currently there's quite the range of compacts available and for what you will pay for some... it opens you up to a lot more.

That is a really strange concept just to look at it. The grille and the decals and the tires. I don't know. Something about it just kinda seems awkward and forced.

When you consider it's meant to be rugged, those things help to fit that profile

Yea but it seems to me like an EcoSport that is trying to be rugged instead of a vehicle that is actually rugged if that makes sense. I think it would look better with black plastic trim on the outside instead of silver/grey.
