2005 Focus - like/dislike?

I'm not sold on the new appearence. Seems to be a step backward away from the fresh cutting edge design towards a more conservative design.

So far I vote dislike.

Starting to look more like the new Taurus.
I'm just wondering what the hatch version is going to look like.

Not fond.

Exterior is okay, but the interior is too bland. And the powertrain options are annoying. Glad I got my 2.3 hatch when I did.

I wondered if they were even going to have a hatch, but looks like they will. Hatchbacks, sedans, 5-door hatchbacks and wagons are slated fior production. No pics other than the sedan so far.

I like the performance the Mazda 3 stationwagon comes with but that rear is UGGGGGGGGG-LY.
