2015 Ford Focus Revealed!

http://reviews.cnet.com/automobiles/...-35835282.html


I like the subtle refinements all around which reestablish the Focus as one of the most enticing options in the segment. The most interesting tidbit is that the 1-liter, 3 cylinder engine will be making an appearance in the US!

Finally a redesign of the front fascia. I have been in the market for a couple of years for a sporty hatch-back. The ONLY thing from keeping me buying the Focus was the front fascia design. My last (2) cars have been Ford products (2010 Taurus Limited, 2012 Fusion SEL), now, they have a hatch-back that I like the looks of. I see one in my future!!!!!!

To me the rear view is super bland. When they cut back on the taillight lenses they killed the style of it all. The back is totally BORING as Hell. Square, bland. same as every other stupid boring car ever made.
I would not want one.
Though the front is nice.

Finally, the company's City Stop feature, which automatically detects an imminent crash and tries to avoid it, has been enhanced. It now works up to 50kmph and will attempt to steer around an obstacle if it can't stop in time.
I don't understand the need for cars to drive for me. Rather than dealing with the issue of distracted drivers, we are going to put more and more technological distractions in cars, and then systems that avoid collisions for distracted drivers.....

No thanks, I will pass.

I actually like the 2012-2014 front better....more "rally" look to it. Only minor changes in the interior, still very happy with my '13.

I was referring only to the 2.0 L N/A GDI engine which is not readily available in Europe at all and is only put into cars exported from Western Europe to Eastern Europe and formerly to Australia from Saarlouis.

Meh styling isn't a winner in my book. I like my 2013 front end better but I do like the interior design with the cubby under the center stack but I'm happy with mine so I wouldn't trade. I hope they leave the st alone though....it would look weird with all this new styling
