I just would like to give you a thread, that can be used to discuss the lack of the wagon on the US/ North American market.
It has come to my attention that this bodystyle is not for sale in your markets.
It is a shame, because this is a really good alternative!
Why is it so?
The new Ford Focus is supposed to be a world car...
It has a big luggage compartment with a low and wide entry for loading.
So for family or small business use, this car is excellent.
Does Ford belive the market is to small in North America, or are "you Americans" so used to oversized vehicles, that you will not consider it as an alternative?
The ride itself, on either highway speeds or on small, narrow and bendy roads is near to perfect - even in the wagon.
The chassis is one of the best chassis out there!
Feel free to comment...
And to make you understand what car I talk about - here are some pictures of mine 2012 Titanium, with a full bodykit, 18" rims and a minor loweringkit.
EDIT Oct. 4th 2012:

New pictures will be added.
