Posted via FF Mobile You mean an 02 svt. So weird a lot of people are saying th sedan looks better. I do and im a hatch fan. Both are great but that sedan is tight. Anyway just heard some important news.

Motor Trend says this focus will be 110 lbs lighter then the chevy cruze even with all the new stuff in it. Which is awesome bc the cruze is just under 2900lbs so we looking at a curb weight of somewhere in the 2700 range, which is pretty much close to our us focus and a bit lighter then the mkii. I was so afraid it was going to be 3k lbs. So pretty much with the NA 2.0 we cam expect similar performance as an Svt and St of the US which for a base car is not bad. Im still looking forward to seeing what powershift can do and how it compares to the manual, but i think we got a ways before any mags get a hold of a production car. Also MT said the 1.6l ecoboost will come shortly.
