Apparently going to be based around the focus and possibly be a 4WD RS version with a 3.2litre!

It looks like a bizarre cross between a Ford and a BMW. Not sure I like it.
gaz6076
I thought it had a BMW/Alfa look to it
TheFiesta
lol I thought of a VW mixed with a Volvo :huh:
Not THAT bad though.
gaz6076
Lol. The back end looks like a 147 in the second picture

If they do decide to make it a hope they don't make it front wheel drive or a diesel version like the scirocco :angry: . A 4WD RS version sounds good though! :P

it will have to be RWD and not have a diesel engine, they could have made it look better <_<

i think it looks like a truck has driven up the back of it and then been runover by a steamroller :(
Nipper449
much prefer the old ones but the 4wd ones growing on me
jasonst170
rear 1/4's look like c90 arse of alfa side windows of capri and a bit of side from the crossfire

anyway i like it about time did a quick 4x4 again think u'l all agree on that

Not a bad attempt. coupe's are starting to make a comeback. This is not coupe' enough to get people to come away from the focus.

I prefer the hot hatch one too, which is what I thought it was going to look like not sure on other style tho.

Just what I was thinking :(

It certainly seems to lack the wow factor and appears to be a mish mash of various other cars (including a bit of mazda RX8).
I really dislike the air intakes (?) in the grill which look like they were an after thought stuck on at a crazy angle. :o

The yellow hatch is better but it looks a bit like the new focus, which looks a bit like the current fiesta. :P

It's going to be based on the focus, like the puma to the fiesta or the cougar to the mondeo.
