I read in Motor Trend today that the three door and five door Focus is no longer going to be made (bye bye Hatchback in other words). They're going to make only the two door coupe and four door sedan (at least until the next generation Focus with the European chassis update). It will have a two-bar chrome grill rather than the three bar on all the other Fords.

Talk about raping the Focus and everything that's good about it. They just turned their back on many of their consumers and Focus enthusiasts. I'm just really disappointed in Ford. It seems like one bad step after another, and they're digging themselves into a hole even worse. Who knows...?

The Volvo C30 looks rather neat, though. Basically, your ticket to the Focus ST just disguised in a different trim with probably a litte bit softer ride.
