The Ford Fusion (née Mondeo) is the latest step in the company’s One Ford strategy, which sees (virtually) the same products sold across American, European and Asian markets. The new Fusion will replace the existing Fusion in the US, and a slightly tweaked version of what you see here will replace the Mondeo in Europe.

As well as being probably the most important new car to be unveiled in Detroit this year, the Fusion illustrates Ford developing their design language toward the premium end of the mainstream. Its language is recognisably Ford and clearly still belongs to the world of Kinetic design, but it's also much calmer than before.

WGSN-homebuildlife will present full coverage from the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, in partnership with Car Design News, over the coming week.
