It's a PERFORMANCE model, EXPECT it to be around 30K MSRP wise to compete with the Evo and WRX, the Focus is now in that territory.

If you want a cheap Sport Compact there is the Fiesta.

People will buy these, yes the tide of owners may turn from College Level kids to Late 20's to Early 30's but that is because the car will cost more. If you want everything this has to offer well then you gotta pay for it, plain and simple.

Kudos to Ford on making a world class car. I will be buying one.
