why focus?

Hi guys

Im in process of selling my current car and I'm looking into a hatchback. I am thinking about GTI and focus titanium.

Why do you guys choose focus when GTI offers, with my poor speculation, more hp and better handling? I'm not here to start a war, I just simply want to know your opinion on focus.

Thank you guys

If you want to compare a Focus to a GTI, wait for the new ST to come out. Then see what you speculate.

Up to you, Ive driven both, The GTI was definately more fun IMHO, but the new Focus definately has the tech and comfort. Its up to what you want. Id also wait on the ST, that should help make your choice much easier.

Im joking lol the focus is fun but the st is only thing that comes close i would wait to see what it offers. The gti is pricey for such a small car.

All depends what u want to use the car for. Gti is badass lots of tricks in the design but has more of a highend luxury feel too me

wrong, out of the box with no mods there are very few FWD hatches that will out handle a GTi. their suspension from the factory is leaps and bounds ahead of anything ford has ever produced, outside of the EuroSpec cars.

but, i agree. you're spending more for what. its all what you want in the car.

yea, weigh the pros and cons and then buy a WRX because they're awesome ;)


hahahahahaha, but honestly write what you like and dislike about both cars down, then compare and decide. first tell me you've driven both. some people like the drivers experience, then get the GTi. some people love the comfort, tech, MPG, and community the focus provides, then get the focus.

as far as douchy. welcome to FF.
