Im sure Ford had a reason to move the giant mouth up a bit, besides for styling differences, might of had something to do with room in the engine bay. Oh and this might not be to some, but hose LED drls are a pretty big deal to be offered on the focus. No one else has them anywhere near this price segment.

Oh and that steering wheel is awesome...and oh...CHECK OUT THOSE SEATS!!!!!!!!

Jalopnik site semi-confirms that the LED eyebrows will be exclusive to the ST package.

Sadly, if I want the fiesta or a focus I will have to get used to a giant B pillar next to my face....since it doesnt look like ANYONE is getting a 3-door focus. Heres to hoping the Fiesta ST if it indeed makes it to our shores is offered as a 3 door only. Ugh, its not that I hate four doors, I just like coupes better and have gotten used to the huge amount of side view the focus offers, and the fact that even with my seat all the way back the b pillar is still out of sight.

maybe they kept the pillar there for safety standard reasons, doesnt the b pillar being in front of you protect you in side impact crashes?

Also i want engine bay shots NAOW!!!!!!

Posted via FF Mobile The pillar is there because its a four door. Nothing to do with safety, but when you ride in a coupe the b pillar is just behind your head and out of site.
