Spy Shots: Ford Fiesta-based crossover mule - click above for high-res image gallery

Ford (http://autoblog.com/make/ford) is enjoying early success with the Fiesta (http://autoblog.com/model/fiesta) here in the United States, but in Europe, where the Fiesta has been on sale for years, it's time to start thinking about the future. Our friendly neighborhood snappers at CarPix have scored spy shots of what appears to be a high-riding Fiesta-based crossover designed to slot in below the Kuga crossover in the automaker's European lineup.

A Fiesta crossover might sound a little odd at first take, but when it comes to production, it should be roughly the same size as a Nissan Juke (http://autoblog.com/model/juke) or Mini Countryman (http://autoblog.com/model/countryman). That in mind, don't rule out the possibility of the Fiesta CUV making its way to the U.S. Expect to see a variety of powertrains offered for European customers including some EcoBoost options, and both front- and all-wheel drive configurations should be available. Check out our gallery of high-res pics before to get a closer look at the forthcoming Blue Oval tall boy.
