Ford has revived its iconic Escort nameplate - with some Australian input.

Ford's Melbourne-based design centre was involved in developing the look of the new Escort, which is a concept car for now.

Unveiled today (NZ time) at the 2013 Shanghai motor show, the Escort concept is designed to appeal to younger Chinese families with a uniquely designed small sedan body.

Designed primarily for the Chinese market the new Escort is based on the underpinnings of a Focus small car but with a slightly larger body that leads to more interior space.

The Escort was a popular model in New Zealand throughout the 1980s and 1990s.
