Coming from someone who LOVES the first gen ZX3 and HATES the sedan Focus... I actually like the 2012 sedan more.

There's something about the 5-door hatchback which makes it like a mini-minivan. If they offered a 3-door model this wouldn't be a problem. The same applies to the Fiesta.

Very few cars can pull off the 5-door hatchback sporty look (Mazda3, Impreza, GTI, etc.)... aaaaand I'm sorry but the 2012 Focus just doesn't do it for me. At the very least the sedan looks pretty nice though.

PS: ZX4STDoug, hate to break it to you but that's not the 2012 model. Still pretty, but once again even the Euro version's 3-door looks better than the 5-door in hatchback trim. ;-)
