Spyshots: 2012 focus wearing a new spoiler

Enjoy:



Quote:
The all-new Ford Focus made a pretty big splash when it debuted at the Detroit Auto Show this past January. The new car, which will be offered in both sedan and hatchback flavors, rides on the automaker's new global C-car platform, and the version that America gets won't be noticeably different from the European model. A good thing, as we've been crying for Euro-tuned Foci for years, though it's safe to assume that the hot new Focus wagon won't be headed to our shores.

Nevertheless, our spies have spotted the 2012 Focus testing near Ford's proving grounds in Dearborn, Michigan, and good news the fresh styling hasn't been dumbed down any from the original models that debuted in Detroit. Aside from more road-worthy wheels and tires, the only noticeable difference is a small spoiler on the sedan, which will more than likely be either an option or a trim level designation. If we're honest, we much prefer this car with a spoiler-less rear end, or maybe with a subtle lip spoiler at most. (Sidebar: If you squint your eyes, does anyone else see a bit of the Escort ZX2 echoed in the Focus sedan's rear shape?)

Don't expect to see the showroom-ready Focus for quite some time, though its 2012 model year designation means that we have to wait until the new calendar year before seeing these little guys on the road. Click through the gallery below to see high-res shots of both the sedan and hatchback prototypes.

Please excuse the dumb question but why do "mules" get painted in the urban camo scheme?

so you cant see the body lines, they dont like to give away everything before launches... im sure there have been subtle changes since things were shown to us...

I kind of want to vinyl wrap my car like that just to see what people do when you drive around lol

Haha I was thinking the same thing.

Anyways. I like that spoiler. Very subtle.

No thanks. Looks better without spoiler. Doesn't need one either. I think I still like the sedan trim more though. The hatchback would definitely look better in 3-door design.

With the covered like that, it sticks out more and would make me look at it. I think it might be more stealthy if it was just white or something.
