I'm actually feeling more love for the sedan over the hatch, but that may change. I do like that the hatch does use some of the Mazda 3 design lines.

One platform that caters to many abroad. This car is going to KILL the small car market!!!!

Yea in the first released pictures Im a fan of the sedan over the hatch. But that may be because the hatch looks huge in the pics imo. I need to not only see it in another color but also next to to something that I can see the size difference to actually get an idea, because right now the hatch makes me think of a mini van not a micro van.

Hi... I'm new to this site and forum but love my Focus, I love the new Focus design but....... I will not buy another Focus until they bring the RS to the USA, almost all other small car manufactures make a factory sport tuned compact car and I think that Ford could blow all of them away!!! maybe even an RS All-Wheel Drive!! that would compete with the Subaru WRX What do ya think?

BAD:
-lights are down instead up like on MkI and MkII
-interior looks awful, very bad but I hope when i see it in person it will look better, the same thing happend to me with 2008 Ford Mondeo but when I sit in it it was WOW!!!

GOOD:
Everything else...

shame that "auto klub" was pretty close to production model...

I think Ford did a decent job...

From the front view of the red hatch, looks like the LED strips are in upper leading edge of the headlights along the top.

They did a decent job. Ford has taken all the sportiness out of the styling of the Focus. There still trying to present it has a up scale small sedan.

So what happened to the 3 door...the ZX3? This thing is starting to look like everything else out there. 4 doors won't get it for me.

I think it looks pretty good. I do like the hatch better than the sedan but not a big fan of the taillights on the hatch.

Well, overall I give the Global Focus a B for looks. The tails on the 5 door look like They belong on a Volvo(I understand and get the connection, so don't bother telling Me that Ford owns Volvo.), and as I said in another thread, the sedan looks like a Scion tC(I also get that the tC is a coupe, but that doesn't change the overall lines of the chassis). I would drive one(of each, if I can help it), in fact I will test drive one as soon as My Ford Dealership has one to do so with. Interior design looks very user friendly, but as I was showing these pics to My EXGF, She mentioned that it looked "very busy". Too many bells and whistles can tend to take away from the primary function of the Driver: driving.

So far, the overall design is a win, to Me.

I am very much a Hatch fan.. always have been.

But unless they come out with a 3 door, IF (and thats a big IF) I ever get one of the new ones it will defenitly be the sedan.
I really do not like the way they designed the rear end of the hatch as it is in the revel pics. But I am holding my final judgements untill I see one in real life with the optional packages. I never fully trust the CGI brochure shots that dealers use nowadays.
