The side sculpture and boomerang rear roof pillar, not so much.
Good point. Considering their design chief is from Audi, thats a HUGE complement, especially with the plethora of other newly styled compacts flooding the market now. Everyone, even Consumer Reports who bashed the Focus hard, has been unanimous in saying the focus looks sharp

Give me some examples?

and do you mean from the drivers seat, the interior layout? if so, then yea I love that of this gen Focus
