Don't be disappointed by the boxy look of this prototype of Ford's new Focus-based SUV, but don't expect it to turn into a 100% Iosis+X copy, either, when the disguise comes off in less than 12 months.

It will be a beautiful car but will still be far away from the show stopper Ford displayed at the Paris Show last September. The new SUV is based on the Focus C1 platform and will get a similar sporty look as the Mazda CX-7.

Nothing is known yet about the name of the new car which has been designed in Europe. The newcomer is scheduled for release at this fall's Frankfurt Motor Show, and upon its debut on the market in spring 2008, it will meet a large number of competitors, which are not easy to beat.

BMW has its X3, Opel has the Antara, Audi is preparing the Q5, Volkswagen will release the Tiguan, Mercedes has the GLK coming and finally Toyota is already very successful with its new RAV 4.

Power for the Ford is expected to come from the known petrol and diesel engines used in the Focus and S-Max.
