Ford Kinetic Design
Kinetic Design is the name given to a style of automobile design used by Ford Motor Company for many of its passenger vehicles in the late 2000s and early 2010s.
Developed by the design studios of Ford of Europe in Germany and Britain, it replaced New Edge, and was first shown in 2005 with the SAV concept. Kinetic Design or Kinetic Design elements have featured on the Ford Ka from the 2008 model onwards, the Ford Fiesta (as well as the Ford Verve concept) from the 2008 model onwards, the Ford Focus from the 2008 model onwards, the Ford C-MAX from the 2007 model onwards, the Ford Kuga, the Ford Mondeo from the 2007 model onwards, the Ford S-MAX and the Ford Galaxy from the 2006 model onwards.
Common features of Kinetic Design is the large, lower trapezoidal grille which may resemble an opened mouth; geometric shaped fog lights to the side; long, straight creases along the side; and headlights that seem to stretch out from the front.
The Ford Kinetic Design was first seen when Ford unveiled the Ford iosis concept. It was later phased out in 2012 starting with the facelifted Ford Fiesta and replaced by Kinetic Design 2.0.
