Ford Iosis Max Concept

This is somethign very interesting i LOVE the interior but the body work could be done differently imho. anyway here is the pics and specs from
http://www.ultimatecarpage.com/car/4...x-Concept.html

images arent working for me tonight so jsut google in the image search. Ford Iosis Max Concept

Ford has unveiled the third in its series of exciting iosis 'kinetic design' bespoke concept cars at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. iosis MAX is a concept study for the next generation of Ford's compact multi-activity vehicle (MAV) as well as a glimpse at the design direction Martin Smith and his team are taking for the company's next generation global C-car family.

The iosis MAX features striking exterior and interior designs based on a fresh interpretation of Ford's kinetic design form language. It is a dynamic MAV and showcases new levels of efficiency and flexibility.

The car's dramatic looks are complemented by innovative solutions which enhance its practicality and environmental performance. These include new door opening concepts, lightweight materials, advanced aerodynamics, and a preview of the European development of Ford's global EcoBoost petrol engine technology coming in 2010.

Coupled to this clean and lean engine are the recently introduced and acclaimed Ford PowerShift transmission, plus a new Ford Auto-Start-Stop system due for production in 2010.

"The iosis MAX marks the next stage in the evolution of kinetic design, and showcases a number of affordable petrol engine technologies that will make a difference to the environment and our customers' pockets," says Martin Smith, Ford of Europe's Executive Design Director.

"Our designers have stretched themselves beyond the two previous iosis concepts, and have applied kinetic design form language to a MAV format vehicle," adds Smith. "The iosis MAX proves that cars in the compact MAV class can have emotive, dynamic styling without sacrificing their traditional virtues of practicality or efficiency - something that the larger and revolutionary S-MAX has already demonstrated."

"Although the iosis MAX isn't a forerunner to a specific production vehicle, it clearly highlights how kinetic design is evolving and can be applied with stunning results to all vehicles in the Ford portfolio."

I was about to say, it looks like a minivan just humped the family's sedan and had a kid or something. Just an ugly vehicle if you ask me.

Looks like the new Focus and Fiesta design- except it's the show model. Those kinds of seats are what they use for car shows. The same goes for the doors. It would be cool IMO if they used sliding doors on more vehicles- like the supposed crossovers that is just a new name for "station wagon".
