Does anyone have pics of the new Ford Mondeo coz I've seen a pic of the back of the car and its looking very like a mazda6.... Please tell that it won't be a Mazda6 clone like all the other ford models E.g. Protege 323 and Ford Laser...
But the Lexus still looks like it want to be a Mercedes. IMHO the clear lights don't fit the Lexus as well as the 6 (though I admit your point, the antenna and lights on the 6 may very well be "taken" from the IS200). But look at the large Lexus.. what's it called? 430? That is a clear Mercedes rip off! A Japanes car for the american market with european styling
I've seen the lights of the mondeo and i know it doesn't look like the mazda6 but i'm talking about is the over shape and is it based on the mazda6?
note the wheel arches...
i think a side view and front view will be more convincing
Isn't the Mazda6 platform loosely based on the current Mondeo platfrom and not the other way around? It does have some new engineering technologies which will be introduced in the new C1 (next gen Focus, Mazda3, Volvo S40) platform. Also the next Mondeo will be on a stretched version of the C1 platform. The current Mondeo has ben out longer than the 6. As far as the X-Type platform someone mentioned, Jaguar will eventually drop the Mondeo platform it uses for a Jag specific platform that it will share with the S-Type.
not even close man. I am drunk and do not think they look the same. I do love the headrest in the ford. I would take that as a option. You know you are a big pimp when you can watch a bugs life in the back seat.
