But its still a very strange decision Ford N.A. made to distance the N.A. Focus design so far from its origins for a 2-3 years stop-gap.

Certainly a step in the right direction.
As was previously mentioned,the color is weird and may not paint that car in it's best light...dark grey or black/white would make it look so much better,imho.

Gotta hand it to Ford for at least listening and responding...

It's harmless enough looking - and definitely improved - but to call it a "redesign" is a bit much. It simply looks like an appearance package (of, say, an ST or SVT version).

Nothing they can do to this generation of Focus will make me want one, but neither will this freshening make me yack.

I like the new front bumper, though wish they would have changed the headlights.

I'm still not sold on the rear, the taillights seem too short and just generally out of place for such a tall rear-end

EAP-ish wheels and svt-like fogs yeah they are definately trying to appeal to us but I still think they should bring the rs even if its toned down it would bring back a hatch to the picture, but it is an improvement

its on the right path ....its just missing something maybe some HID headlamps change the 2 bar front grill & headlight to something a little more stylish ....but one thing that would really sell me on it would be a rear hatch and a forced induction option like the mazda 6 now what i mean by that is: on my current mazda 6 it looks like a trunk but has a hatch. it comes in handy alot of times

It's a step in the right direction, but still not there. I love how they fixed up the fog lamps and removed the chrome trim, but they still have a long way to go to fix up the ugly headlights and change the entire body style to a hatchback. Sorry, not sold. I still believe the SVT Focus is the sexiest version yet.
