I'll wait for the MKII. Reminds me of the Corolla S, just exterior stuff, which is an improvement over 08, but it's now a 4x4 on 17 inch wheels sporting a pavement-rippling 143 horses. I can't hate on the new Focus as it still carries the name, it's not its fault that it looks the way it does...

Its the whole top front that I have disliked, the lights and the grille are blah. Just something about it. I have faith for the future though. Nice rims and lower bumper and no chrome. I just really dislike the new Focus.

It's better than the '08, that's all I can really say.

Sorry, guess I've been a hatch guy for way too many years.

i like it alot

i wish they would have filled that gap in the grill like the fs car, other than that i like it alot.

I would just add a set of springs and i would be happy.

Ok....so they put on some wheels that you could order with the car in the first place and changed the front bumper.
Anyway it's better without chrome and I like front bumper, but noting special.
Let see what happens next year...

Big improvement. I like the changes that they made.
Can't wait to see one with a nice drop and big FMIC in the front grill.

Nice, alot better then the 08, I def know if I bought an 08 coupe, id be kicking myself right now or seeing if I could get my money back and get in an 09 for sure. They did address the major complaints, only thing they should of added was a sport tuned suspension on the SES, make it like the ST's or svts at least. That car needs a drop, but the wheels look sick, I want them on my car lol. Awesome for the increased horsepower too, especially since they did it for the manual and the automatic. Electronic stability control is a nice feature too if it works properly. Idk about the roof spoiler, the car needs a trunk lip as well. Love how they darkened the chrome too and got rid of the side vents. I'm guessing focus sport is going to grab one of these and do some aftermarket. I'm sure they knew about this cause you would of thought they would of put out the lip kits and stuff for the 08 by now. I'm sure they'll make new ones for this new 09 and itll be out soon. I too think its awesome that the bumpers kinda look like the svt ones. Def a step in the right direction. And finally Ford is listening to us.

I'm hoping thats the stock photo. With the big pics I just noticed that it is sporting BFGoodrich tires....sweet. I need new tires soon and those were the exact ones I was looking to get, people love them and they have good ratings. Nice to know ford is putting some good tires on them...unlike previous years, like the terrible firestone firehawks and pirellis that they put on from 00-04.
