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.
