It seems like Ford hates North America.
No wagons, two doors, diesels, and fewer options.
Other manufacturers offer the same cars to the EU as America.

I wonder how much is our stupid C.A.F.E. standards, chicken tariff, and other self imposed stupidity that caused lack of choices in our car market.

TOTALLY! I'm one of those niche guys that would much rather a wagon than a crossover. Zero craps given about american's perceptions of wagons of old. I love the idea of a car that's practical and spacious while still having the clean lines and epic chassis of a MK3! Most of those small crossover SUV's don't get much better MPG than my pickup does (18 combined) and most do not come with a manual transmission unless you go for the el-cheapo strip base model, which seem to be value-village manuals lifted straight out of a vintage diesel F250. I'd absolutely own a Focus wagon if I needed a family vehicle. Maybe even a Fusion or Mazda6 wagon.

I saw that new Mazda 6 wagon that's going to be rolling around in Europe. My gawd, sexiest station wagon out there right now. for wagons!
