    Cobalt in a second. The Focus is okay I suppose, but since it was watered down it has become a lot less desirable. The Cobalt is a better effort.

    But then, maybe I'd just take a Civic, which is what both of them want to be when they grow up.

    Like I said before, Ford took the cool out of the Focus's walk. I would take the Cobalt Coupe over the Focus 3dr.

    Exterior appearance- Focus. (the Cobalt is a bit too soft, imo)

    Interior- Cobalt, by a country mile.

    overall- Cobalt. It just looks more desirable.

    Re: Chevy Cobalt vs Ford Focus

    It's funny... I didn't like the Focus at all when it came out, but now that they've dumbed it down I miss the old one. Lutz said a while ago that the Focus was aging well, and he's right (well was until they changed it). If buying one of the two tomorrow it'd be a Cobalt. As for 'all-new' car worries, NOTHING can be worse than the N.A. Focus was out of the gate, so I wouldn't be worried.

    The "new" Focus is horrible IMO. Ford should've just brought the new EU one here!

    2007 BMW 328i. Black sapphire metallic. Terra leather. Poplar wood. Automatic trans. Xenon adaptive headlights. BMW Assist. Bluetooth. Premium package. Heated seats. iDrive navigation system. Rear sonar. Comfort access. LOGIC7 surround sound. Sirius. 18" BMW wheels. Rear spoiler.

    2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara Luxury. Black onyx pearl. Beige leather. 4WD. Chrome hood vents, mirror covers, exhaust. Silver grille, taillight trim. Brushed metal bumper protector. Running boards.

    Re: Chevy Cobalt vs Ford Focus

    I like the exterior of the Focus 4-dr. much more than I do the Cobalt 4-dr.

    Interior wise, I am mixed because I know that the Focus has excellent fit-and-finish on the interior, but I have not seen a Cobalt interior in person.

    I hate the gap on the Cobalt that goes from the tail-light to the rear wheel. It looks cheap..

    Re: Chevy Cobalt vs Ford Focus

    I wouldn't even consider either 4 door and I would take the Cobalt coupe over the ZX3. Why does GM use a body colored B-Pillar when everone else uses a blacked out pillar to lessen the look of the 3 rear doors? I wonder when the New Focus will be here because it's been getting rave reviews.

    Do you like the one in the G6? Cause it's got a similar one.

    Re: Chevy Cobalt vs Ford Focus

    I've driven the Focus, and was not very impressed with it. And I was pretty shocked that people actually said that it was a solid car. it was a rickety bucket on wheels.
    I haven't driven a Cobalt... and probably wont unless I rent one. But from my experience with the Focus... I wouldn't get one. So I'd prefer the Cobalt.

    I actually like both. Id have a hard time deciding. However before when it was hte Cavalier, I wouldnt go within 30 feet of a Cavy. Ugly piece of **************** that was.
