Very nice looking, the sedan is the best looking focus sedan ever by far. Hoo-ray for Ford not succumbing to adding cheap design quirks which quickly turn a design into a disaster i.e. no chrome fuel filler door, no fake hood or fender vents, clear tail lenses, etc.
The sedan and 5 door hatch have very similar lines to the mazda 3, not too suprising there. And if you look at the current generation of European focus, this is clearly an evolution in their design cues.
High points, some already covered, but pointing them out again:
-5 bolt lugs
-Rear disk brakes
-Nice C piller design, visibility maintained
-6 sp. manual offered
-Interior looks amazing
-Euro style rear fogs
-Three part lower front grill is polarizing design feature
-D.I. and dual clutch trans could be difficult for aftermarket
-Huge wheels = huge tire prices
Unknowns (as far as I can tell) I'm interested in:
-LSD?, suspension set up, any changes?
