Compared to this?



Yes. :-)

But whatevs, I'm not going to argue the stance thing anymore. To each their own. Was just stating my opinion/preference.

Btw, that last pic makes the car look huge too. Check out the shnozz on that Focus, haha. Unless that man is a midget. You could almost fit 3 of his heads into the headlight housing alone.

Haha I'm just messin' though. Looks like some lens distortion/optical illusion thingy is goin' on there.

The Mazda is shot from above, makes the car look lower... The Ford shots are all low. The Mazda also has more aggressive ground effects, making it seem lower.

Be that as it may, Kyle, how do you explain the 4 other examples I provided?

What examples? Ghiafan posted pics your

Edit*: I found them, you are comparing the Focus, to a G8, CTS sport wagon, Saab, and A4. Seems appropriate...

Regardless of how fast it will be, I would like to get involved with the new ZX3.

Looks very good.

Mr Moose, in your comparo examples you use vehicles that cost quite alot more, but your point is made. But you see in Europe Ford offers cool edtions of the Focus such as the WRC Sport trim, right from the factory to quash your concern (But it would be nice to save my warranty, time, and money) comment.









If that is still too SUV stance for you, lets try some facts which pertain to the current MKII Focus wagon.

Lets use your Audi A4 Avant example for comparison in ground clearance.
How many inches difference to you think the A4 sits compared to a stock Focus wagon?


















0.70"

damn, GhiaFan, this pictures are awesome, this current wagon looks even better that 2012 model...who mention Audi, I mean VW...
This Focus (current MkII EU) is one of the best cars in history, it's well priced and it has a ton of versions - 3 door, 5 door, sedan, wagon, coupe-convertible, C-Max and the individual and other sport trim, the ST and of course the RS and that's not all - RS500 and mountune package...
The MkII looks better than anything in it's class and it drives the same way it looks...great!

@Z_interactive, well you have to give some of our N.A. brothers a bit of slack as they are not used to the mother company offering slick trim lines for the customizer that is worried about high costs and warranty.
Just to make sure MrMoose wants to comment what about the high rise hatches, this should edumicate him that the hatches come with some nice stances as well, without having to spend ST or RS prices.


Above pic is MKII before facelift in 2008 and just in case you have doubts that the 2008 and onwards gets left out (hatch that is) better stick a pic of that car as well



And just in case you don't want to spend for a special trim edtion or it is not offered in your specific market, Ford offers body kits and Eibach suspension lowering kits separately as accessories. So you can save $1,000.00 of dollars needed to buy those luxury/premium level sport wagons to get that nice low to the ground effects for your high riding by almost a full inch Focus.

And if you fancy a SUV looking Focus wagon, those crazy guys at Ford Europe actually offered the X-Roader edition for the Holland market
