Even, in the current Focus, I like the hatchback than the Sedan.

The tail lights in the above pics are awkwardly placed... The interiors look good.

hmm...I dont like it. It doesnt have the visual impact of the previous version and the five door looks terrible, although I'll hold my final opinion till I see some real world pics or maybe one on the road.

The interiors are way better though, very VWish.

I agree with Rtechm the last one was fairly aggressive, and sort of started a new design trend. But this one just drags it on. And i hate those Fusion-esqe headlights. So this is the one that we wuld be getting? If so, i hope they do that thing they do everytime, and give us a last gen model!

Interiors are classy, hatch rear looks like the back of the 1st fwd corolla with exception of the lights. A long as it drives like the old focus, I have nothing against it

Well,liked the previous version better.But like Rtech said,would wait and see what it looks like on road.
Somehow the tail-light design dont look that cool though.

this focus is so lovely, but how far is it carried down to India is what matters.

Unfortunately, i am sure, lots of features will be cutdown!

Doesn't look as good and sporty as the older one but, when Jason Plato test drove it on a recent 5th Gear epi, he was amazed by the road hugging capabilities of this car, he said it was clearly much more fun to drive than the older one.
