TBH I really love the new mk3.5's very nice design something about honeycomb grills just does it for me. Smaller is fine for std. sport model (st) gets wider/more agressive front, RS gets nice distinction from the rest but same overall shape if you ask me.

I love the new body design on the 2016 hatchback. I think the headlights & taillights look much better, as well as the fog lights. I also like the painted-to-match moldings below the rear bumper, around the exhaust pipe.

I just think the new nose lost a little of it's originality and not a fan of the homogenized look.
I do like the dash refresh and the new steering wheel is pretty nice but nothing that has me saying I wish I had a newer one.

I'd choose my mk3 (2014) over the new Focus anyday. I will say that the 18 inch titanium
Wheel look a lot cleaner than the stock (Sport ST style rims) I plan to upgrade to the Titanum rim style (18) the mk3 is a solid platform. With that said I would upgrade to the new fiesta style (2018) in a heartbeat. It is lighter and looks more appealing, IMO

I thought that was pretty close to what they did.
I just think they messed up and made the upper grill too small.

Let's be honest, the 2018 fiesta is mean!!!!! The focus is a great car but if I was going to upgrade to a another non turbo, the fiesta is a better choice. What do you think?

I think the Fiesta is sweet! I would have to get an ST.
But I don't think I could deal with the decreased cargo space.

Got a 2015 Focus SE hachback, the perfect car if the freaking transmission would work right.

Instead of actually fixing this, they are killing the Focus. Ford is dead to me now. Next car will probably be a Mazda, they stole Ford's designs anyhow.

Get a GTI if you are so hung up about automatics. it's a obsession you got to get over it's never going to happen. Excuses excuses. Make enough money to have an automatic as daily driver have the ST as a fun car.
