    Badass interior, and I'm eager to check out this new motor and trans combo, but the body is just so bland :hs:

    Interior is better, but no hatch? :ugh:

    at least he refresh looks better than the last one, but it's still pretty bland, and still has 136 hp :ughd:

    interior on both looks like shit :barf:

    why do they not understand that people dont want to buy a car with an interior that looks like it belongs in the discount bin at wal*mart

    that said, i really like the 500's drivetrain

    I remember a top gear segment where they took the last gen focus before it was even unveiled and put it on a busy street, and no one even noticed it. You'd have to point out to people it's a brand new model.

    The Sync feature in the Focus sounds pretty sweet though.

    Yeah that and the new drivetrains are the only thing I'm looking forward to, but if this Sync shit pans out as well as it sounds it'll be revolutionary :eek3:

    this is some really disappointing shit. Ford needs to either get some balls and build something worth driving or just /itself already.
