^^no, it is available in USA, only it's called Saturn Astra. In every video or text review it's always the same words, understeer, no enough feel through steering wheel...
Here's one, get it and you can understeer and not feeling the road as much as you want

We didn't even get the sporty version (VXR) of the Astra. The US models were overpriced, underpowered, and undermarketed. But what else can you expect from GM? Leave it to them to screw up a good European car.

If they were smart about it, they would've had a great selling car that would've directly competed with the MazdaSpeed3. But they seriously dropped the ball on the Astra. And now Saturn doesn't even exist anymore because of it.

Does anyone know the length of the cargo bay in the 2012 Focus Hatchback ?
That is, with the back seats folded down, the distance from the back of the front seats to the rear door. I want to know if my bicycle will fit.
And the width, height, and width of door, too, if you have it.

Its larger then my SVTF by a lot, and my SVTF was able to fit my 29er as long as I took the front wheel off. I think it should be fine.

These are preliminary estimates that Ford published when the new, next-generation 2012 Focus made its global debut in Detroit this past January. I really question the length of the Mk3 hatchback because Ford said it's basically the same size as the current Mk2 Euro Focus hatchback which according to the Ford UK website has a published length of 4337 mm which equals 170.7". From the pics I've seen of the new Mk3 hatchback it does not look like 7.9" of length has been added. It appears very much the same size as the current Mk2 Euro Focus hatchback.

I'm shure MkIII isn't the same size as EU MkII model, it's bigger!
You wanted the length of the cargo bay and the width, height, and width of door!
Well nobody knows that, we'll have to wait few months for ford focus official catalogue!

Thanks for replies.
I'll have to wait. I hope it's not too much smaller than my wagon. Maybe I can keep my wagon running until the C-max is available.
