I agree with posters thus far. Great for Europe, bad for consumers in NA. Hopefully, the NA Focus will be an improvement in interior design (higher quality), superior NVH using the new 2.3L engine and probably most significant is improved reliability and quality. BTW, I believe all C170 Euro Focus have 4 wheel disc brakes.
There is no reason Focus can't sell 300K in USA. It's a shame that Ford ruined the reputation of this car.
It looks like a Vibe/Civic Si sorta thing...
You don't know if you want to call it a sport compact car, small suv, or a whatsyamacallit....I wish they would make the Focus look more like a Peugot (mispell)
It talks of the most significant development being it's growth spurt
I thought the current cars have like a 103 inch wheelbase. How can going to a 103.9 inch base be that much of a spurt? Overall length has only changed a few of inches. Am I just an idiot? Or does this seem weird to anyone else?
