Default Next-generation Ford Focus Announced

Quote:
The new Focus will be nearly identical in all markets, with 80 percent parts commonality around the world.

“The new Ford Focus is a clear demonstration that our ONE Ford strategy is providing global consumers with great products that harness the best of Ford Motor Company,” said Alan Mulally, Ford’s president and CEO. “The efficiencies generated by our new global C-car platform will enable us to provide Ford Focus customers with an affordable product offering quality, fuel efficiency, safety and technology beyond their expectations.”

I always wondered why they didn't make the same cars in America and in Europe.

It looks like a fatter version of the new fiesta. The front end doesn't look too bad though. Definitely not a good looking hatchback.

Front end looks like a retro 2000 Taurus. Not a good thing.

One of the ugliest cars i've seen...this thing rivals Pacers and Gremlins.

had I'd been buying my focus next year, I'd pass and go with the Scion instead. No coupe = no beans from me!
