It is a handsome car. I like that they're going against the bigger grill trend. They also tuck the nose down, which I think looks better. They've done similar in the current Escape and it looks a bit better.

Euro tow ratings are different, but 3900lbs is impressive.

Almost enough to make me want to move to Europe. Almost

If I lived in Europe or England and had the money to afford a new Focus ST, there are all manner of awesome cars I'd rather have.  205 GTI.  106 Rallye, the manic 1.3l version.  And even some cars that aren't French.

 

IIRC Foci are roughly double what they cost in the US, no?  I recall a friend in England spending the equivalent of $40k for a low spec model.

Yeah the ST is about $40k for a base model. I always found the discrepancy between US and UK new car pricing kinda weird because used cars are so much cheaper over there.

Dear Ford, it is okay to sell wagons in the states. Subaru sells a butt load of them every year called the Outback!

how does Subaru get away with that? I see more suby wagons than sedans.

Same reason Volvo does.
