Most of those features are optional, and I'm betting they'll drive the price up considerably, but my gut is telling me it will still be cheaper than a comparably equipped Focus (well, some things aren't even available in a sans-ST Focus...). It seems clear that the Titanium is the mark Dodge/Fiat is shooting for.

That, and to me the interior is a let-down. Looks like a '90s interior with a few fancy screens thrown in. And it weighs too much; it's big enough to not really be a compact at all, same for the new Jetta.

The same thing is said about the Focus though. It is still a Ford.
