Very nice! As I say the 3.5 has really grown on me.

Rebecca's reviews went down hill after leaving CarBuyer. Other than great handling, did she highlight any positives about the car?

Obviously drove the Titanium with its apparently poor visibility when parking, but neglected to mention Active Park Assist for example.

Unfortunately now ford are doing a one car for all markets there starting to look dull and drab too us Brits. The interior of the focus is far too American plastic cheap cheap and boring. The exterior is far to safe with a horrible rear end and boring design like all American cars have. I do like the focus RS in ways but that's the same boring American cheap cheap plastic.

I've always liked fords from being a kid especially fast fords but there starting to loose there way a little for me. With interior quality and design all round which is a really big shame really.

Although the I agree, I thought the new interior looked a little bland/plasticy underneath the touch screen, I often think new American interiors can look more luxurious than ours.

 

For example on the American Focus, a little gloss black takes away the all one grey plastic look:

(This is the pre-facelift one).

 

 

Generally, from what I've seen I wouldn't summarise American interiors as being cheap plastic any more.

 

On their Ford Escape SUV theres now a Platinum trim - which is higher than Titanium (and would even be higher than our Titanium X):

Doesn't look too shabby to me.
