The Active now as wagon as well, so far for Europe only;

Engine lineup consists of Petrol and Diesel engines between 120-150hp, manual or automatic, but no optional AWD, you do however get two additional drive modes (slippery and trail), which might probably help in undemanding situations, which likely covers 99,9% of the situations these vehicles get into.

This is god awful ugly. Looks like a guppy face. Remember the Evo's concept? Remember how everyone LOVED the design of the new Fusion? Ya, that's the Ford I'd like to see again.

I find it very attractive. Butch it up a little and send this to the USA as the Focus Active.

Ford isn't sending either version of the Active to the US, alas.
