Yeah, I know that, but Fusion took many cues from it.


Almost positive the Evos came after the Fusion restyle (and others) was completed.

nope, 2b2 proved it, but I also recall seeing Fusion mules after the Evos and comparing character lines between the two.

The 2013 Fusion came out in 2012.  Evos was in 2011.   Fusion styling had to be locked in at least a year earlier than Evos (2010) if not sooner.

^ & ^^ agree, Akirby

synchronicity, not really "post hoc ergo propter hoc"

I made no claims / drew no conclusions

The Iosis concept had more influence on the Mondeo/Fusion:

The 2011-12 Fusion maybe. I don't see much of the 2013+ in there. Too much Mazda 6.

What? What happened?

Sorry but you are wrong. Ford themselves draw a direct line from Iosis to Mondeo:  http://www.ford.co.u...d/KineticDesign

Going completely off topic here...there really isn't all that much difference between the 2010 Mondeo and current Fusion/Mondeo...the greenhouse looks identical

The interior hip and shoulder room grew between 1" and 2 " front and rear respectively.

It's one of those mostly new design that looks just like the old one thing. Kuga had very similar evolutionary change during the same period as well. BON favorite whipping boy Toyota Camry received the same treatment as well... keeping the same greenhouse for 3 generations.

 

Other examples: MK1 Escape vs. MK2 Escape. Ford kept the same side windows from Mk1 to Mk2. Some people still think it was just a heavy facelift despite the two not sharing any exterior sheet metal or interior, not to mention all new drivetrain.

 

Or the Mk3 Taurus vs. Mk4 Taurus. In that case, Ford did keep the same Mk3 front wind shield and side windows, and borrowed the Mk3 Sable rear wind shield for Mk4 Taurus.

 

Or Mk2 Expedition vs. Mk3 Expedition. Completely new frame but evidently same body shell... Ford didn't even bother changing the sheet metal that time. Just bumpers and fascia.
