More baby cars from Ford

It's baby boom time at Ford! Hot on the heels of the firm's exciting new Fiesta family which already includes the sleek StreetKa and practical Fusion UAV comes this, the all-new Fiesta Courier.
Known internally as the 'baby Transit', the rival to the Renault Kangoo and Vauxhall Corsa Combo is revealed in all its glory in this exclusive spy picture. And it's clear the newcomer, which is expected to cost from only 7,000 when it goes on sale next year, will offer a great deal more versatility than its long-serving Fiesta van predecessor. As well as forming the basis for a panel-sided commercial, it will also offer a huge five-seat edition, complete with panoramic windows and sliding rear doors.

Inside, the car will have a much more rugged feel than recently revealed stablemates such as the Fusion. The floor will be covered with hard-wearing plastics rather than carpet, and there will be even more emphasis on stowage space. Our spies report that the company has experimented with aircraft-style roof-mounted lockers, as already seen in Citroen's Berlingo Multispace. Secure storage bins hidden in the floor are also expected.

It looks likely that the commercial edition will boast enormous variety, as it borrows its suspension from the Fusion UAV and engines from the entire Fiesta range. Entry-level models will be powered by a 65bhp Duratec 1.3-litre, although the biggest seller by far is expected to be the Duratorq 1.4 TDCi unit that's being built jointly with Peugeot. Due to debut early next year, this is expected to offer 68bhp and return combined economy of 62.8mpg. Ford is also aiming to make life easier for town delivery drivers with the introduction of a CVT automatic box. Initially this will be available only with a 100bhp 1.6-litre 16v engine.

I hope Tickford get a hold of this vehicle. I mean come on 68bhp, it's practically a rocketship now and it's aggressive styling will lend itself to the Flying Wings!!

Sweet! I was looking at a small van. I can't fit in a Combo and drive it, I am not that big either! I reckon I coould boost that little diesel to at least 80hp.

Nothing on this earth beats holding your newborn child for the first time.
