I heard they weren't bringing that to the US. Let's hope they do!

Also, I just read the HP number. How...HOW?

Its cool, but for the high price I imagine it will be, the only hatch I would buy is a Focus RS.

They most likely won't, but if they do, hopefully BMW will follow and bring the 1 series hatch to the US

Looks like Honda had sex with a Volvo, then later on that hybrid had sex with a Mercedes-Benz and managed to produce this as its offspring. Terrible!


I see the rear end from a Honda Fit, the roof design of a CR-V, the front end styling of Volvo's R-design, and the rest of the new Mercedes lineup stuffed in elsewhere.

I am in love with this car. See Ford? an AWD hot hatch ain't so bad haha

Whoops, hopefully this doesn't start up 50 pages of AWD/FWD arguments like normal LOL

With features such as automatic stop/start and brake-energy recuperation, it boasts official combined cycle consumption of 34.1 mpg on the European cycle.

I cant recall how the european mpg tests work but that sounds really high for an awd 350hp car. That'd be really impressive to see, even 30mpg would still be impressive

Sure its powerful and AWD, but I doubt anyone on this forum could afford one.

I'd rather have a hot Focus.
