because race car
I don't mind the current focus. It doesn't look exciting but It's got some cool features
I agrree with you, its supposed to be 2 times better, and in some ways it will be, but dont forget the price increase will level the mk3 focus to new rivals..Posted via FF Mobile. The review is pretty stupid...although it is treu, but duhh the mkiii is tye next generation its supposed to be better in everyway. Actually it should be two times better since the US basically still has a first generation focus. The current focus is not a bad car...it has many great qualities about it. Its lighter then most compacts, more fun to drive, class leading fuel economy, and its inexpensive. Unfortunatly its basic technology under the skin is way outdated and 10 years old. You were buying a 2010 but werent really getting anything much different besides a new outfit then an 05. Which is why i got hit with bad reviews...it just didnt keep up with the times. Now we finally have a new focus with new tech and a new chassie, engine and powertain. I cant wait to see specs, reviews, and have a seat in one...which im hoping will be out by the ny autoshow and i can sit in it.
ME TOO, like a thounsand times better...I personally like today's Euro version more than the '12 especially the ST or RS.
It already did, the Focus was sold as a cheap car to begin with, and it does not hold its value as a used car compared to something like a Honda Civic. How you can think the 2010 looks better than previous versions is beyond me... but like I said earlier style is subjective.And for owners of all Foci previous, LET THE DEPRECIATION BEGIN!!
Uh-huh... and again, that's subjective. As in, on the other side of the coin, I find the 2008+ Focus to be hideously ugly and think the 2000-2004 model was the best. [poke]Ummm...because the frontend looks much better than the old? Just a guess here.[woot]
^Of which is also subjective because I think that the USDM 00-04 front and rear end are hideous, both ZX3/5 and sedan, and the redesigned 05-07 front end and sedan rear end was a great improvement on a terrible design.Uh-huh... and again, that's subjective. As in, on the other side of the coin, I find the 2008+ Focus to be hideously ugly and think the 2000-2004 model was the best. [poke]
