The SYNus is a sub-compact car concept from Ford. Based on the European Fiesta platform, SYNus represents a size of vehicle that is foreign to the US market, yet flourishes everywhere else. This will change soon. Honda, Nissan, Smart and others have plans to bring new sub-compact models to the US. SYNus is unique look at a potential offering from Ford. Inspired by an armored car, the SYNus has few windows, security shades and even a combination lock on the outside. By contrast, the inside is soft, inviting and meant for relaxing. A large 45-inch LCD screen on the rear door provides entertainment and doubles as a security monitor when the car is in "secure" mode. A 2.0L 4-cylinder diesel engine provides motivation.
