felixthecat Mk3,3.5 is great, now on to the mk4, not really a fan of the size. hope Ford doesn't mess w/ the st.

Tundrafoci TBH I really love the new mk3.5's very nice design something about honeycomb grills just does it for me. Smaller is fine for std. sport model (st) gets wider/more agressive front, RS gets nice distinction from the rest but same overall shape if you ask me.

Great Ford made the RS distinctive. The Focus was a European design to begin w/ & seems like Ford is making all the front end's of their cars similar.

I think it has to be aerodynamics. Other than the grills I think the Fusion, Optima, and Sonata look pretty close.

I think for Ford, it is more about copying. The old Focus had a very good drag coefficient the way it was.

2016 Focus RS: .355
2013-2014 Focus ST: .30
2012-2014 Focus MkIII hatch: .295
2012-2014 Focus MkIII sedan: .274
2013+ Mazda3 hatch: .28
2013+ Mazda3 sedan: .26
2011+ Hyundai Elantra: .28

The only place where it looks like Ford modified the design strictly for aero to me is the 2015+ Focus Electric. They made the grill even smaller, changed the headlight shape (older style?), hood shape, flipped the lower grill, deleted fogs and made significant changes to the curvature and lines in the lower front fascia. The fog light area on the Electric seems to be designed to minimize drag over the front wheel wells.

My wife liked the looks of the '14 better at first, me not so much. She agrees now that the front of the '15 has better lines and looks as she say, "more refined". Myself, I'm not a fan of the A frame grill. The Focus does not look as bad as the Toyota front end. The Toyota is just butt ugly.
I don't care for the brand family similarity or the Lexus frontend.
