The exterior design is the latest evolution of the Kinetic language, and features a dynamic stance and flowing, expressive lines.

Designers aimed at combining a Kuga-inspired exterior with an interior cargo volume comparable to the current Ford Escape model.

Among the distinctive styling cues are the aggressive lower grille treatment, faster roofline and rising beltline with rear kickup.
