More reason to get an SVT

Found This interesting article on Motor Trends website
http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/...ash/index.html

They compared four sport compacts and here is their overall sentiment

"Among this affordable foursome, the SVT Focus is our choice as the best all-around "real" sport compact. It's the one we'd most like to drive on a racetrack, and the one we'd most like to live with on a daily basis. It offers the most flexible and generous interior accommodations as well as the most comprehensive list of standard and available equipment (minus a turbo or all-wheel drive, that is). You can also get the Focus in two-door-hatch form, a configuration not offered by the others. Yes, it's the priciest among these players, but look at the list of options on our tester, subtract what you don't need (e.g. heated seats, traction control, moonroof, and HID headlamps), and you'll end up with a legit $20,300 sport compact that'll keep you entertained for years to come."

Just thought I'd let everyone know!

That's good stuff. I wonder what they meant by "real" sport compact.

Because some people place the Z and the Supra in the sport compact class. (maybe?)
