Post pictures of the new focus on any other forum that is not a Focus site and see what people say. I would bet there will be no more than 10 posts before someone says it looks like a Kia. Just sayin...


Again, I may just be crazy and sad for no SVT or ST...
Nope, bc the taillights look nothing like the Kia fortes and if you mean that they wrap around the sides...uhh, tons of cars have that now. The bottom of the doors its pretty different as the Kia's is squared off and falls back down, where as the focus sedans disappears into the fenders. And you kidding me...both have black trim on the bottom of the bumper?????? Dude, sorry but tons of cars have these design traits, there like standardized elements being put into cars these days. If I wanted to waste alot of time I could probably find a ton of other cars with similar design traits as the focus. But non look like the focus....but I rarely look at a car and try to find how it looks like some other car. Going a little outta your way to be honest.

Posted via FF Mobile I think it was something like november or decemeber. I understand that some people want this thing now but you must remeber Ford is trying the best they can to get this out, and the 2011s have only just begun production. 6 months is hardly enough time to use up most of the old focus stuff, I really think when the 2012 comes depends on how fast ford can move out 2011s from the factory and both 2011 and 2010s of the lots.
