Not withstanding the imperial gallon conversion, I would have liked the choice of having the 1.6L TDCi. That said, I still wouldn't have gotten it. IIRC, that particular Focus/engine would have it's hat handed to it by Yaris' and Fits all day long. That can't make for easy passing or highway merging. I don't think gas prices are high enough yet, for enough folks to swallow that pill. I think the fact we're getting the Focus such it is, is a fantastic start. However, baby steps...
