The interior looks like a Honda Civic! Yuck! I love the roundness of the Focus interior. I guess no 2005 or 06 for me!

I don't like the headlights....sure they are HIDs (?) but the design was original. and flowed with the car real well. Maybe it's just something you have to get used to. I'll stick with my ZTS though.

I haven't completely warmed up to the new Focus yet. The angle that the front end makes around the edge of the headlights seems weird. And the interior, well... it seems like a strange mix of parts from the current Focus and new stuff, and they don't quite seem to match. Like the center console for example, which is from the current Focus. It seems a little out of place with the new "square" interior.
