2015 Focus with Aston Martin Grill, Yay Or Nay?

Ford is going with the Aston Martin's front grill with most of its models. I personally think it looks sleek, although it does resembles the Aston Martin quite a bit.

What is everyones opinion on the upcoming 2015 focus compared to the Current 2011-2014? Like It? Dislike?

If I could trade in my current 2013 Focus, I'd do it in a heart beat. But I know, a new refreshed model is due for 2017

Personally, I really like it. It resembles a more aggressive look that a lot of the cars are switching to today. I feel they're currently behind with most of the other Ford models, kind of like what Mazda has been doing. I wish that bumper and hood fits on a 2014 model :) I just couldn't wait another year..

I thought about the fitment as well, but I know it isn't plausible

No regrets on making the current purchase because as much as I like the new front grill, I'd would hate knowing that a refresh is only around the corner. But still the aston grill is nicer than the current one lol

I think it lost a little originality obviously as the older grill wasn't shared with any other car. I'm glad I have my 2012.
