|Montag||It looks fine for what it is. Every other subcompact is just as ugly. Nobody drives a car like this for style unless they're delusional. I'm sure the power is fine too considering the car's weight and the turbocharged torque curve. So quit bitching and get me some mpg numbers.|

And just to clarify, I'm not saying the engine is a bad engine or anything... just that I've had my fill of slow gutless cars over the years. Fuel economy be damned, I'm tired of driving things that can barely get out of their own way. So this car would not be for me. And to comment on the post below... the car looked great in its original form, it was actually a very stylish car (at least in hatchback form). The problem is Ford did the usual car manufacturer tricks of trying to update a design on a minimal budget (mid cycle refresh or whatever they call it) and tacking on the current grille doesn't flow with the rest of the unchanged body design.

Has anyone seen the engine?
Anyone who has ever made fun of the Duratec for being a rat's nest can kindly shut up now lol. Also the 1.0L is the first Duratec to have the exhaust in the front...

Let me try this again.
There are two (so far)poweroutput levels for the 1.0L. NA markets will get this one:
Displacement: 61 cu in, 999 cc Power: 123 hp @ 6000 rpm Torque: 148 lb-ft @ 1400 rpm

Although, I dunno, maybe it is... driving a slow vehicle forces you to be a more thoughtful and considerate driver. You really have to plan ahead and anticipate other drivers' behavior. Because otherwise, they will crash into your slow vehicle and you will die.
