Who cares though? This model is bread and butter in Europe along with the Fiesta. That's why the US may not even get the hatch. It's far far more crucial for Europe than any other market so they need to cater for those buyers more. The larger, China built sedan is the one you need to concern yourself with. Both the 1st and 2nd gen (in ST guise mainly) still look better than a lot of other cars of their generations. The US -focused Mk3 looks dated by comparison and its salvo was the facelift which much improved its design.

Very attractive, handsome, and grown up. It's a welcome change from the jejeune styling of previous generations. I like this a lot. Too bad there will be such a lag time to it coming to the USA.

Volvo headlights + Impreza DLO = me being confused.

I'm not sure that the new exterior is an improvement.

I like it, more than the first spyshots suggested. Still a Focus and not immediately making previous generation cars look old, yet different and fresh enough (German car makers, that's possible - as well as a more different Fiestas would have been possible). Also, generally a new design language for Ford in many details, as much as i like their currnet designs mostly, and the "Kinetic" theme still looks fresh after 10+ years, it was time for an update before they get caught in a VAG/BMW endless loop pf repeat...

That looks lovely and far cleaner and better resolved than the current generation hatch.
