I couldn't get what was standard on the base S, and what was only standard on the SES (which is what's shown, right?).

Will the S not get the nice euro style wheels? I wouldn't mind losing the roofdeck spoiler.

Correct, they are doing one on the '08 nothing yet that I've seen for the '09. I'd like to see one that'd hit the specialty dealers for the '09 when it launches.

Thumbs down

Im not too impressed with the look of the new Foci. I've given myself a few months to let the look grow on me since the sedan, but it just isn't happening. Maybe I have the wrong impression but I was hoping for the coupe model to look a bit more like a hatch back, which has always been my draw to the Focus. The shape reminds me of a Hyundai accent I used to own.

Ford can stick that in their asses. The only good thing they did was the rear spoiler, good rally looking.

its improved not what i was expecting though im glad they got rid of all of the tacky chrome and put some nice looking wheels and SVTish front and rear bumper and to be honest the roof spoiler isnt half bad i just wish they would have like blacked out the headlights or something i mean they are darker but for some reason it take away from the aggressiveness of the front end...I AM your target market and looking to buy a new car next year....dont lose my business bring back the hatch in 2010

It horrible!!!!after reading a few of your comments why dont Ford give the European Focus to North America?As my uncle said who was over here visiting last year our Focus is light years ahead of yours in terms of build quality and handling.

The picture at the start of this thread would never sell over here in a million years.

As for rear spoiler being a bit Escort Cossie or rally look a like then you guys need to look at some picturesit nothing like that at all.

The body design went from fugly to fexy.

As far as things like CAI's, I think the people who buy them want to buy their own. "Tuners" who want a CAI aren't the ones willing to shell out an extra stealership profit to get one as a factory option.
