Let Ford’s designers talk you around the Verve concept, father of the next Fiesta
31 August 2007

The Ford Verve will undoubtedly be among the most important and prescient concept cars on show in Frankfurt next month. Autocar understands that this car is a better indicator to the final look of the next Ford Fiesta, to be released next year, than the Iosis concept was for the new Mondeo. And you can get a closer look at Verve in our exclusive video on the car.The Verve is the first in a series of concept cars that will appear at motor shows during the coming months, and which will all preview a different version of the next Fiesta. Verve previews the three-door car; others will provide a sneak peak of the five-door (which will look slightly different) and the four-door saloon. There’s no word yet on whether Ford will replace the Fusion mini-MPV with a new junior people-mover based on the Fiesta’s underpinnings; if it did, expect the car to be renamed B-Max.

Driven this week

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
