*Ford Focus Awards*

I just came up with a great idea for a thread. I don't think anyone has done this, but lets put together a list of awards that the focus has won throughout it's lifetime. I hear people all the time on this forum say that it has won many awards...so why not put a list together. People who come to this site looking for questions cause they want to buy a focus will see the awards and it might help the car sell to them. Maybe this can even be a sticky somewhere.

I'll start with some I found.

European Car of the Year 1999: 55 journalists in 21 countries voted in the 1999 COTY program and 42 of the 55 scored Focus as their first choice. Focus scored 444 points to the second-place winner's 272.

Goldenes Lenkrad (Golden Steering Wheel): Twenty-six jurors of automotive experts and celebrities awarded Focus first place in this German competition with a total of 1,281 points, 67 points more than its closer competitor.

Scottish Car of the Year 1998/99: Focus is the first-ever winner of this award presented by the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers. Focus also won the "family" category.

Car of the Year 1999, Denmark: Ford Focus won this award from the Danish Association of Motoring Journalists with a total of 201 points. The next closest competitor received 121 points from the jury of 24 journalists.

Ricerce Formale: Focus won this Italian award for a new design approach in the automotive business. It is presented by an international jury that decides the winner for "l'automobile pi¨ bella del monde" (World's Most Beautiful Automobile).

Car of the Year, Estonia: Awarded first place by Estonian Car Journalists.

Irish Semperit Car of the Year for 1999: Focus won this award from the Irish Independent with 138 points, the highest margin of votes in the history of the award. Twenty-four of the 30 jurors awarded Focus first place.

Family Car of the Year, 1998, Sweden: Focus won this award from Swedish motoring magazine Motorf÷raren. Eight of the 10 automotive journalists on the jury voted Focus as the winner.

Not a bad idea, we'll try it out

North American Car of the Year 2000: A jury of 47 independent journalists from Canada and the United States selected Ford Focus as the North American Car of the Year. They selected Focus because it set a new standard for the small car segment.

Car and Driver 10 Best: 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004

hehehe, quick search of the site: http://www.focusfanatics.com/news/view.asp?linkid=212

As people add awards you should edit your post to reflect them. That way people who just want to see all the awards the Focus has won won't have to read through the entire thread.
