Very Interesting! I like the interior for one thing, but I think that the exterior could have had some more thought process put into it. For another thing, Ford could have dropped the rear spoiler down onto the trunk lid like they did previously in the past, but it's something that I could get used to. All in all I'd like the car if it were a four door (sedan).

Remeber guys, the MKIII is coming and once Ford has the fiesta over here they'll have a new bottom end car that can be all about economy, which hopefully thats not all and they make a performance version, but this should push the focus upmarket and make it a much better car.

Why... is this thread... still alive...? I hate this stupid car so much! It's hard for me to hate things, but this particular car, ugh! 2011, 2011, 2011... *trails off...

I like it too, and I love the hatch. A hatch would get me into the dealer for sure.

One thing I wish they'd do- the back. There's far too many doo-dads on the trunk lid. There's the high mount stoplight, the blue oval, the keylock, and the focus badging, plus the little STS badge. Way too much clutter. How about a black high mount, no blue oval, hide the keylock somewhere, and skip everything else. You could leave the tail lights.

I saw the sneak peek at FS in May and we chatted with the Focus rep from Ford who listened to everything we said, which was nice. I like it enough that I ordered one in Vista Blue...should be delivered in Nov or Dec. With all the good info and tips on FF, I'll hook it up right!

Why does the body kit in the brochure look different than the car here in these images? This one looks so bad...the but blue car in the brochure has a much more complete kit.

Still..for over 20K for a loaded Focus....THAT's a lot of money for this car.

If I had to spend $17k-$20k on a new car, it would have to be the new Lancer.

But seriously...don't any of you notice how the SES Coupe body kit is different in the brochure than what is shown in the pictures in the first page of this thread?

Particularly the rear bumper...it's so much nicer in the brochure and makes the car so much fuller...with the paint package or something.
