Why does everyone say the Focus is such an ugly car?

I never understood it, I think they look cool. But everyone, I mean everyone, when I tell them I'm going to buy a Focus says ewwwww, those are so ugly! I don't care what they think, I'm gonna buy one anyway. I just don't understand people's tastes sometimes :P

IMO, the "new" ('05+) hatchbacks look really nice in white, black, or the dark blue color, especially the SES. I also like how the new ST sedan looks in white or black (don't really like the sedan in blue). Other than that, I think some of them look really cheap, or they have bad colors.

ok, I just checked the Ford Canada website, and they don't even have the dark blue color any more. Instead, they have a funky neon blue, and a kiwi green. I'd say these poor color choices have alot to do with why people don't like how the Focus looks.

My faves are the 00-04 hatches and the new ST sedans, in blue, black, or silver. The new blue sucks, IMO. They took Malibu Blue and changed it a little, made it uglier. It's just a hair different from Malibu blue but something just looks wrong about it. Granted, the 05-up hatches can look really really hot (so get off my back guys! ) but they need a lot of TLC to look that way.

My son and I were meeting at a movie theatre. He parked (Ford Ranger, blue oval family after all) next to a group of high school students, and was passing them on foot when I drove past. He overheard the comment "That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen", followed by laughter. Taste and perception are very subjective.
