Still think the 05-07 are the best looking Focus. The new sedan is ok, the wagon not so much.

i think it's near perfect.

2 flaws come to mind instantly:
-no 2 door hatch. which we already knew.
-the hatch doesn't have the high-mount tails. which was already speculated.

make a performance version and i'm sold. i think it's gorgeous and fits the lineup perfectly with the fiesta beneath it.

the lower grille, in 3 sections, leaves a little to be desired in my mind. but even so, i'm not disliking it. that's the only styling cue that even comes close to turning me off.

"EcoBoost engines to make it into U.S. cars, too, including one with over 225 horsepower in a sporty version, perhaps wearing an ST or SVT badge"

What everyone here wanted to here!

we all know a performance version is likely to follow. several reasons - the past svt version here, the history of performance versions around the rest of the world, the fact that they're taking it back to the global platform coupled with my previous reason, and oh yeah, repeated comments that about the introduction of a higher powered eco-boost version. but more often than not, performance versions of vehicles come along after the fact. so maybe we wait a year or two. it'll come along.
