AWD 2004 Ford Focus!

have a look at this pic. The car looks very conservative and loses its 'edge'. A bit dissapointing i must say. However big, grippy tyres and flared wheel arches could mean AWD?

No, it looks OK....maybe the headlights should be a little bit more slanted up like in the current model. Most important thing is to sort out the reliability issues of the current car as this car could be winning the same awards as before.

NO, I like the old one more.

But GP was sure correct when he said Ford was trying to get all their cars to look similiar, or DNA.

It looks like the new Mondeo and Falcon (not that we know what it looks like, if that makes any sense)

after reading that the ST170 is coming out it has made me want one- however after reading reviews i found on the net, it seems that the engine is a big dissapointment and at odds with the rest of the brilliant package. It feels slow they say. See what Motor and Wheels say i guess......

The Zetec just does not cut it apparently. Im a tad dissapointed i must say. Well it is either a Focus ST170, Mazda 6 or Barra for my next car in a few years

Nice looking car, but a bit pricey

I prefer the current one IMO.
Here are a few pics of the ST170






This is my favourite Focus....the Focus RS. If Ford imported this i'll be the first to buy it :s6:

The front end looks like the new Mondeo. I like it. Slanty hedlights look too Japanesy IMO. (not that japanese cars are bad)

Looks too much like a Mondeo. Hope the Falcon doesn't look too much the same. Because if someone doesn't like they look of the Falcon, chances are they won't like the look of the Mondeo/Focus.

Pity the car shown on FordEurope.net's page is just a computer mock up.
