Frankly the looks seem to be writing a check it's performance won't be able to cash.

I liked the SVT because it was subtle, only those who were in the "know" could see a difference, it had a European flair. This thing still looks like a Toyota Venza to me.

The front end is what kills it for me. I kinda like the rear other than that it does NOTHING for me.

The MK1 Focus will always be my favorite. This one, no thanks I could care less if it had a bazillion HP (although that would be pretty sweet if it had that much)
