I'm actually feeling more love for the sedan over the hatch, but that may change. I do like that the hatch does use some of the Mazda 3 design lines.

One platform that caters to many abroad. This car is going to KILL the small car market!!!!

Yea in the first released pictures Im a fan of the sedan over the hatch. But that may be because the hatch looks huge in the pics imo. I need to not only see it in another color but also next to to something that I can see the size difference to actually get an idea, because right now the hatch makes me think of a mini van not a micro van.

Hi... I'm new to this site and forum but love my Focus, I love the new Focus design but....... I will not buy another Focus until they bring the RS to the USA, almost all other small car manufactures make a factory sport tuned compact car and I think that Ford could blow all of them away!!! maybe even an RS All-Wheel Drive!! that would compete with the Subaru WRX What do ya think?

I got the SEL hatchback and like its looks better than any of its direct competitors. What I really like is driving it, except for it requiring continuous small steering corrections at highway speed to keep it in a straight line. I still dont know if that's a problem with my car or 2012 Focuses in general. If it's an engineering defect, I hope Ford corrects it.
I think they did a great job on the interior. Overall, I feel my car was a bargain. It's not a family car, but I don't have a family. It'd make a great commute car because it's fun to drive and get's good mileage. The sony radio isn't spectacular but it's better than entry level. My Touch is going to be great once I learn how to work it and microsoft or whoever gets a few bugs worked out. The auto climate control works great and the a/c is plenty strong enough for my black car in north texas.
If this car didn't have a six (or more) speed auto transmission, I wouldn't have bought it. People have complained about the manual shifting being on the gear shift rather than paddles on the steering wheel, but I like it where it is. Maybe people who race prefer paddle shifters. I had an RX8 with paddles on the wheel for the 6 speed auto trans, I don't race, and I prefer the rocker on the gearshift.
I thought I'd never buy another stick shift, but the turbopowered version of this car may change my mind. I wish Ford would do an autoshift turbo also. That would be my car.

From the front view of the red hatch, looks like the LED strips are in upper leading edge of the headlights along the top.
