You should come to Europe to see what tight parking spaces and narrow streets really mean - because what you're calling tight in Europe would be regular or even wide if you can park there a really large sedan without any issues. Same for navigating narrow streets.

Yeah, the Focus needs better interior packaging, if you look at the current one, the wide console eats up front knee space....

... while the rear seats seem to be positioned well ahead of the rear wheels, this means less rear knee room.

Why I think the rear seats couldn't be moved back? The location of the fuel tank provision and crossbeam basically dictated where the rear seat should be, a design carried over from the previous C1 platform which the Mk3's Global C platform is derived from.

Not only am i from Europe, i am from Cyprus. I still see no issue with some additional lenght. It's not like the Focus will grow THAT much in size. Let's not overreact...And again, Europe can buy a Fiesta if the Focus is too big. Still see no issue...

I'm really really excited for this! I hope they get it right first time around with the Mk4. And no new Fiesta tail lights please, i want to see something a lot sleeker and aggressive even.

I'm hoping for tasteful restraint on the tail lights. It won't happen but I'd love to see tail lights that span the width of the car.

Agreed, hopefully it will be a bit more interesting to look at than the new Fiesta. What we've seen so far is promising. I'm especially interested in seeing the ST, since by the time it comes out I'll be ready to replace my '13.

"MKZ" style lights on the back of a Focus would be very nice.

"Light bars" in general are very modern and tasteful. Not bland (yet).

I'm just praying Ford doesn't generi-fy the Focus like they did with the Fiesta and Chevy with the Spark.
