Scroll to the bottom of the page - they're there...a bunch of click bait above it. That stuff drives me nuts.

I don't see Ford dumping Fusion for the exact reason you just stated. I think it's also the basis of the Edge (at least the frame of it)...they've milked / twisted / stretched that platform to a WHOLE bunch of products - so add this fact to your logic - and you've got a dumb move if they do it.

I also am a guy who prefers sedans to CUV's. I went from a CUV to Sedan - and thought I'd regret it, I don't.

God no, don't see any Cruze in it myself. Don't get me wrong, i have nothing against the Cruze's design but the Focus should be sleeker IMO.

I don't see any Cruze in it at all either. Personally, I think the design of the hatch has a Mazda vibe to it.

The Focus has always had an ugly tail, so I was pleased that it appeared that Ford finally had come to its senses, but that tail is a total mess and perhaps is as hideously wrong as Focus I.

Face palm. Mk1 is still a fantastic looking, classic design.

To some, but not to all. "Europe" loved it. The USA didn't. Reviews of its looks were pretty scathing at the time.

Well it had mixed reviews (design wise, packaging was brillant form day one), even I was unsure what to think of it's sharp angled lines and rather tall body, but IMO it has aged very well (just compare a clean, non facelifted Mk.1 to say a Toyota Corolla, Mazda Proetege or Hyundai form that era), it certainly doesn't show that it is 20 years old by now.

Ha nice, you think the lady is mad?

Different, but nice, liking the rims and the glasshouse.

Of course this seems like a top sport trim with the large rims and added bumpers/sideskirts.
