Once inside the interior, the electronics reassure me that I shall not feel any quip or qualm of the driving experience, nay for the torque and steering feedback that shall tell me of the BALLS this car has. This car, this good thing. While behind the wheel the car shall not bitch once of what I wish to do it, for the engineer has built and rebuilt every piece that shall please my foot, hand, and butt. I will not feel cold, I will not feel warm, I will only look cool or hot, as the car shall be tuned as I damn well please. Yay, I pledge every ounce of strength to Ford to build this car, this good thing.

The new Focus is basically a brand new car that falls among the ranks of the Fusion/Taurus, but in compact form. The new Fiesta is basically the old Focus. The new Ka is basically the old Fiesta. I'm not trying to imply anything negative here either. It should seem pretty obvious that they're shuffling the badges around, but keeping the same price/size/class tiers.

Idk if i'd say shuffling the badges around, but really they are just getting a bit larger with each model year...just like ever other car. A honda accord from the 90s is the size of a Honda civic right now. Every automaker does this as the generations go on. Should be no surprise...unless you really dont know how the auto industry works.

What I like, so far, are the new 2.0L engine, the possibility of an EcoBoost, much better interior materials, bigger, four-wheel disk brakes, and the reportedly quieter interior. The looks' best improvement, IMO, is the much better stock stance. Give me time to see the real sheetmetal and then ask me about the rest of the looks...

What I like is the 5 lugs, projector headlights so people wont cry when we put hids in them lol, the front end is fantastic and the sedan and hatchback look great. cant wait to see the prices on these. Might have to trade in my focus that i still owe 7 grand on to get one of these. And the double din screen is a big plus so now we jsut have to modify that one to play movies and what not.

Both cars look great! Still getting used to the front bumper bet everything else looks awesome. I really can't wait to see people start modding these things. It's going to be EPIC!!!!!
