New Edge design, a Ford hallmark since the Focus debuted in 1998, is being phased out of Ford's European designs. The Ford Visos concept, which debuted last week, points the way to the future.

"Visos is a statement that shows what we want to do with sculptured body surfaces," says Chris Bird, Ford of Europe's chief designer. "It's a lot more flowing. There are more sculptural, voluptuous surfaces."

Derrick Kuzak, Ford of Europe's product development chief, said Ford has no immediate plans to make the Visos, which was inspired by the Ford Capri.

Ford worked with Sony Corp. to develop liquid crystal displays for the instrument panel. By choosing comfort or performance mode with the displays, a driver can change the seat contours, driving dynamics and the appearance of the instrument panel.

Designers increased cabin space by moving much of the wiring and equipment out of the instrument panel and into the doors and body panels.

The Visos is based on an all-wheel-drive platform. It is powered by a 2.9-liter, 350-hp inline-six cylinder engine. Many components come from Ford's C1 Technologies, an engineering program in Cologne, Germany, which is spawning the next generation Focus.
