Upcoming Ford Focus.

Take a peak.





I dont like the hatchback but I think it's the colour thats distracting me.


Interior.


Sorry for not addin the link .

Here it is autoblog

Quote:
This time around the new Focus is truly global and adopts the latest evolution of Ford's European "Kinetic" design language. Judging by our first exposure to the 2012 Focus, every other contender in the segment may have a real problem to deal with next year. Learn more about the new Focus after the jump.

I love the exterior, but the interior is not my favorite.

think it'll stick like this once it becomes production? This was the 'unveiling' right?

It's a "global" version, so it's coming here.

Interesting, the hatch pics don't have one. On the sedan some have one in the front, one pic has the antenna in the back.

I kind of like the interior of this Ford Focus. Busy but SHARP looking.

I hope you do get it. And I also wish they add a AWD hardware instead of FWD(Hint:torque steer)

Exterior is very nice. Interior not so great, but still good for the money. This could be a huge hit for Ford.

I like it. I just commented in another posting that the MyFord Touch system is pretty awesome. Check out this post on Engadget (especially the pics): http://www.engadget.com/2010/01/07/m...icrosoft-auto/

I look forward to more cars getting more and more technically advanced like this...

Saw it yesterday at the auto show, big improvement from the current North American Focus.
