True...euro plates but if ford's recent past practice follows thru it will probably come here, too, as part of ford's "one ford" plan. I agree w u in that i dont think well ever see a RS here

Those are basically still the same cars that have been rumored to be alternatively an RS, a face lifted ST and and the basic 2015. It's nothing special yet as it's all just a test mule.

looks like it probably followed the new fiesta and fusion's front grille (the current ST's as well)... if there is no RS coming to the U.S., I am keeping my current Focus permanently.

I hope that if they revise the headlights and tails that they fit the 2012-2014's. Looking exciting.

I like how the radio looks, looks miles more elegant than the base units.

I like the current non Sony IP design, as it blends with the rest of the 3D design language. Plus it is 100% different then all the other competitors.

The new design does not mesh with the rest of the cabins design.


The look is OK, but rather pedestrian/conservative looking , boring IMO.

Not a fan of the new radio but the new base AC/Heat control options are finally a break from 1982! Maybe we'll get climate control as a standalone option, too!

The new radio buttons look far better than the 'Transformers' look that we have now. The HVAC controls look nicer, too. The base manual control HVAC in the lower levels of the SE/S may not be pretty, but they work very well.
