    if this gets made in RHD, and parallel imports get allowed, its not beyond the realms of possibility to own one of these if you desire. i would much prefer this over Mondeo, as i'm not that keen on the hatch back look of the mondeo.
    I'm lead to believe this car won't make it out if China.

    Seeing as they're sell about 1 million cars a month its chicken feed.
    Isn't China's car market now bigger then the US?

    Ford Australia is an integral part of Ford Motor Company's Asia Pacific operations. Ford’s Asia Pacific office has regional responsibility for 20 markets and is the Company’s fastest growing sales region. This regional grouping is headquartered in Shanghai and includes responsibility for the parent company's investments in China. In 2012 growth distribution saw 41% Asia-Pacific, 29% US & Europe 30%. By 2020 it is forecast that those figure will be 46% Asia-Pacific, 26% US & Europe 28%.

    The Australia automotive market is, by world measures, relatively small with an annual industry volume of approximately 1.1 million units. This compares with an annual US market of approximately 15 million sales and a market forecast of 19 million units for China this year.

    Shame it's only for LHD markets, I can see the 2.7 Ecoboost being a smash hit in this car,
    Power and torque similar to BA XR6 turbo but with much better economy..
