Yes, but even if they brought over the C1 focus in 2008 they are half a cycle late for that platform... the C1 will be replaced worldwide in 2011 or so...

After they dropped the ball in 2005, they just need to stick with it with significantly redesigned 2008 C170 Focus and just bring the C2 Focus in 2011 when the worldwide Focus and Mazda3 will be redesigned as well..

However given the current mindset, we will never again see a focus identical to the European one.. the platform will be and the interior might be, but the exterior styling will be "american"
