SPOTTED: If you look beyond the garish Zebra pattern camouflage you’ll see Ford’s Fiesta SUV planned for 2012.

Hot on the heels of its popular Fiesta hatchback/sedan launch, the US automaker looks set to take on the SUV market with a new model planned for 2012.

Our spies snapped these images of Ford’s Fiesta SUV undergoing testing. Judging from the images the new model looks to be inspired by the US automaker’s Kuga model.

The 16" wheels on the test model are wrapped in Pirelli Scorpion ATR tyres. The test car also shows increased ground clearance over the hatchback derivative giving us an indication of its ride height. The wheels also protrude past each side of the vehicle displaying a wider track.

Styling will probably be a blend of Fiesta and the off-road inspired Kuga.

The new model will be available in some markets in 2012 in a choice of two and all-wheel drive variants.
