That's the new Ford look going across all their models.

Pretty sure they own Aston or at least have some rights to some Aston stuff.

I like the Idea blanky. And they may own aston, ford owns everything now-a-days it seems.

I test drove the one with the 2.5l and was far from impressed. It was a lower end model but it just felt so bland to me. Im sure a fully loaded up eco boost wouldnt be too bad. I love the body lines. It just didnt feel right driving it for me.

Ford owned all of Aston-Martin until 2007. They still have a 15% interest. Wikipedia is your friend.

You got to remember ford designed to db when they owned them. Plus really there are only so many original car designs. Eventually things look alike. From the side they look nothing alike.

I think most people will ask if its Aston Martin until they see the Ford badge.

I think a lot of companies have some explaining to do. It's almost every new car I see on the street has the Aston Martin style brake lights whether is be the Honda Odyssey to the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The new Fusion is horrendous IMO. It's also taken the same shape as the Optima.

wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Mondeo

in the United States, the Fusion/Mondeo Mk.5 bodywork will be used in the Car of Tomorrow second-generation body used in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starting in 2013, replacing the current Mazda6-based Fusion
