Saw one yesterday as I was driving home still with the window sticker. It didn't have those wheels though, which may have helped.

When Ford gives the "coupe" a real coupe-like lower stance (aka the civic coupe), I'll pay attention.

Otheriwse I really don't mind the looks, just fix the stance.

God knows why they just don't give us the European version.
actually a lot of us DO know why:
to do it & make a profit takes the time to gear up for NA production...
...since their brain-transplant (MkF then Mr.M) they're working nite&day to get the C2 over here for 4/10

I *like* the changes
& **LOVE** that Ford listened and delivered :D

Part of the appeal for the Focus for me was the roominess that comes with a taller roofline and higher driving position. It is hard to make it look lower when it is tall. I bet it has 7 in on the Cobalt.

The focus looks like **** ford fans, get over it.

Just so I'm not accused of bias, everything Buick makes not named Enclave looks like **** as well.

Hm...dressing an abortion up in a Sunday's best.

Doesn't do much for me. Anything, rather.

Exterior oddities aside I can handle, I can't bear the interior of that car. Ford's gauges, for some reason, are ungodly difficult for me to read.

That, and things like deleting the telescopic steering wheel...was a step backwards.

I've heard of people moving forward, but not backwards.

I find myself not liking this thing either even w/just 2doors. The interior...esp. the dashboard is hideous. The center stack is just awful!
Then again, this is just a stopgap til they can get the next gen "global" Focus here.
I surely hope it looks ALOT better than this rubbish thing.
