Small cars do not immediately seem a good fit for a brand once known for selling large sedans called “Continentals,” but that is exactly what Ford is considering for Lincoln.

Ford thinks there is room for a small car in Lincoln’s portfolio as it prepares a barrage of compacts for the U.S. market. Lincoln is the latest in a line of premiere brands, including Cadillac and Infiniti, to look at the feasibility of a luxury small car. It already is set to receive a version of the next Ford Escape, which itself should be based on the Ford Kuga (pictured), the compact crossover sold in Europe.

Mixed signals from Ford again, originally Mercury was supposed to get the premium small cars.
