I own a 2003 sedan & I have test drove both the 2008 sedan & coupe versions of the new Focus & for me, I prefer the coupe for multiple reasons. One reason is the fact that I'm 6 ft. 5 in. tall & the larger door makes all the difference getting in & out of the car, two i'm single with no children, & three i just think it looks sportier. One thing i do like about both versions is the fact that i can drive the car with my nees together which was impossible in the last 3 cars i have owened.(white 1997 Ford Escort LX Sport 5-speed manual[i miss that car], blue 1995 Mercury Mystique automatic, & my current car black with blue flames 2003 Ford Focus LX 5-speed manual) Both 2008 Focuses that i test drove were 5-speed manuals.
I will NEVER own another automatic!
