But not quite as the bland-ish sedan we’re accustomed to.
We’ve all heard and read a few weeks ago that Ford’s decided to kill all its cars save for the Mustang. Rumour has it that Ford’s tune is changing somewhat. We in Canada are not set to welcome the Focus Activ, a dressed-up Focus 5-door hatchback for Mall-Terrain activities, but the US will get it. They might also be privy to an equally dressed up Fusion wagon intent on taking on the popular Subaru Outback.
Odds are that it will be called the Fusion Activ, and like the Focus, receive much body cladding, likely a few extra centimeters of ground clearance and most importantly, AWD, something the Focus might not get. Allowing the Fusion name to live on is a wise move on Ford’s behalf. We all know what happened when they killed the Taurus nameplate…
And as far as we’re concerned, the more wagons the merrier!
