Based on the Fiesta, the Fusion, like the Ka, is graded 1, 2 and 3 for trim levels and comes with either a 1.4 or 1.6-litre petrol engine as well as a 1.4TDCi common rail diesel.
The Fusion is priced from £9,995 on-the-road for the 1.4 and includes twin airbags, central locking and a leather-covered steering wheel as standard.
Prices for the 1.4 TDCi start at £10,625 while the 1.6 begins at £11,495.
Ford marketing director Peter Fleet said: 'Our philosophy was to create a design for a new compact vehicle – with a small car footprint – but taller and tougher than traditional small cars. These features coupled with the Fusion's practical interior make it ideal for the cut-and-thrust of modern urban life.'
