The HP might be down, but I think that you would have to drive it to judge it. The 1.0L Ecoboost Focus does very well apparently.

For the love of all that is good and right PLEASE STOP POSTING MILEAGE FIGURES FOR EUROPEAN TDCI ENGINES!! You know those of us on the other side of the pond have to drive gas guzzlers to support our government and the auto companies. We want little diesels but they won't bring them here because of stringent regulations on small diesel engines intentionally passed during the GWB era. Big trucks that suck diesel at 6-8mpg don't fall under the same regs- only passenger vehicles. Bringing little diesels here so that Americans could get more than 40 mpg would be tantamount to trying to overthrow the US government. It's just NOT PATRIOTIC!!! The only manufacturers who sell little diesels here are foreign- damn Germans, really. Who wants a twin turbo Mercedes I4 diesel with 190 hp and 367 tq? Not Americans, nope, we got to support our poor subsidized oil companies and their politicians. Give us a >3.0 V6 and talk about how it gets good gas mileage in the mid 20's with more hp than some minute diesel! That's American!

I read the article; OK so overall as used in the European Focus, they liked it. But the bottom line I pulled from that story is the 0-60 time is in the same ballpark as my Transit Connect. That's not good.

Although, I dunno, maybe it is... driving a slow vehicle forces you to be a more thoughtful and considerate driver. You really have to plan ahead and anticipate other drivers' behavior. Because otherwise, they will crash into your slow vehicle and you will die.
