Default Is one of these cars "big" at all?

Vauxhall Corsa



Ford Focus



The idiots at this crazy Brit driving forum think that the last one (The Ford) is "Big"! Here's the link to this stupidity:

If they came to the states, they would see some real "big" cars

I know, those crazy Brits wouldn't know a big car if they were ran over by it!

my focus (US) is quite roomy even for a coupe, my dads Accord Coupe can fit a 6'5 male easily (getting out just isn't too graceful)

In the Netherlands (and Europa) is this car, for his class, not big or small. But in the States is the Focus, I think, very small.
And I think that some Americans think that the Vauxhall (or Opel) is a toy car for six years old kids. Am I right?

Of course their not big, the Ford Focus is just a compact car, and the Vauxhall Corsa too I believe, its pretty dumb calling it big, when theirs Cadillacs and Lincolns driving around, lets not forget the Rolls-Royce Phantom, witch is British!

No. TBH most people have never heard of them, because they don't sell them here. We don't have Vauxhall or Opel.
