This Focus sure looks classy in black!



Back in January of 2010, I had a 2009 Focus as a rental car for a week. I'd never been a big fan of the restyled Focuses, but I had to admit this particular one looked great, with its chrome grille and upgraded wheels contrasting nicely with its black paint job.



The car just kind of exuded a sophisticated vibe, looking like its occupants would perpetually be dressed well and on their way to a romantic dinner at an expensive restaurant.



If I was going to own this generation of Focus, my natural inclination would be to want an SES, but I really do think this non-SES looks great.

That looks just like mine mine the day i got it, though i have the moon & tune package. They are good looking economy cars.

It looks like a more expensive car than it is.

Mine has those same wheels except mines a coupe and has the blacked out lights, tails, and grill and I think it looks better.

I actually like the front design of that car better than the front of the '12. But from the back, the '12 definitely wins. It does look nice in black.

It looks sweet, all it really needs is some tire dressing on those tires.
