2012 Ford Focus Sedan and hunkback

Well... the Ford Focus in my opinion has grown up quite a bit. The new 2012 models are pretty stunning in their own right.... even just for a compact car.

Re: 2012 Ford Focus Sedan and hunkback

Pretty sharp, I saw them on the TV news last night. With the Ford Fiesta (aka Mazda 2) coming over they can afford to go a little upmarket with the Focus. From what they said it's the same Focus as the European one this time around.

Re: 2012 Ford Focus Sedan and hunkback

Well if we're getting the regular euro spec Focus, then it would make a lot more sense for them to bring the RS over too.

Right now the RS doesn't share any parts with the current car, so it wouldn't make sense to go through all the steps required to legally sell the thing here.

I agree. We all know Ford's stubborn approach when it comes to building track cars that are not Mustangs.....

Looks a little like the 2nd gen 3 from the side (sedan)

Am I the only one here who thinks that this is kinda what the 3 should have looked like instead of the way it is now?
