New Ford Focus Coupe



On these pictures (or is it the color) I don't think it looks as bad as some people think.

On the other hand, it does have an old Escort after taste. And I wonder how that plasticky silver dash looks and feels in real life...

It's not terrible looking, but as far as under-$18K coupes go it's competition is the Cobalt/G5, Scion tC, Civic coupe, and Tiburon; all of which, I think, look better.

is it a hatch or a stubby coupe? i think someone said it before, why make a car with a trunk opening thats tiny when it could easily be made into a hatch? but then again this car WAS designed by the wonderful morons at fomoco

It's embarrassing. It looks sub-Korean.

The cut line that dominates the back 2/3rds of the car simply stops too soon at the trailing edge of the front quarter panel. It makes the car look like it has a different car's front clip attached to it.

I think the front is really bad, and the back is just, well, as uninteresting as it gets.

I've seen better looking things come from my rear end.

Looks like the old Escort hatchback, or even worse.... Some chinese piece of junk.

I would never, EVER buy this over a Civic and Ford is actually my favorite domestic.

It's amazing how Ford managed to transform the Focus into an old Escort. I guess the next Taurus redesign will turn that into an LTD.
