Traded my 05 focus ZX3 in on one. I love it.
So does 99.8% of those who also own one.
The other .2% probably hate Dodge/Chrysler and their significant other bought it.

Say what ya want about the new Dart. Everyone has an opinion.
And after test driving the 12 Focus, I test drove the Dart.... The dart won. I know I'm happy with it.
And Only 160hp? Yes 160 in a 1.4L plus 184 lbs torque. Not that far from the svt if anyone's counting.
Plus with basic bolt-ons it up to 190hp from what I've seen from others dyno's so far.
No tune yet but once it's out.....
Looks are one thing yes I understand that. But as for performance it hold up just fine.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVED my focus!! I miss it a lot!!
