The big touchscreen might be interesting hopefully they have sorted out the issues the Americans have been having with my Ford touch. I can't help but feel the interior has gone a bit dull though. When the Focus Mk3 launched it looked really different, interior included, there is a lot of dull black plastic now, like in a golf or something.
I look forward to seeing the zetec s trim it really needs sporting up a bit IMO. Feels like ford has given in to making a safer more generic design.
Also surprised to see the 2L diesel as only a 150PS, would have thought they would just stick to the 163PS. Unless they are dropping the PSA engine, but that doesn't seem plausible for a refresh.
180PS from a 1.5L petrol should be interesting too.
Don't get me wrong though, I'm not trying to poopoo everything it just feels like 2 steps forward one step back.
I've been looking on the US site to get an idea of price comparison and the Mustang starts around the same price as a Focus ST.
I realise the V6 is the cheapest option in the states (cheaper than the ecoboost) and is not coming to the UK, but I don't think it is unreasonable to actually see the UK mustang starting at around 25K.
Sorry I can't hear you over the awesomeness of my PS4. j/k.
No in all seriousness, I have felt next-gen is a bit of an anti-climax. It doesn't help that I am buying all multi-plats on PC, so it leaves me with little to buy on my PS4. Knack is better than expected, but my main reason for getting the PS4 was Killzone, but the save system is atrocious, I lost over an hours progress over the weekend due to the way it (doesn't) save, so it has put me off playing it.
I even took Friday off work for the PS4, and over the weekend, I must have put more hours into my PC than PS4.
PC is not all sunshine and rainbows though, ACBF is such an unstable game on PC at the moment. It is so much fun when it works, but keeps flippin' crashing!
I think 2014 is going to be the year of the next gen console, I can't wait for Infamous and Destiny. Watch Dogs, Ill be getting on PC anyway though (hurrah another buggy PC launch to look forward to).
The 2.0 TDCi is a PSA engine. (Peugeot/Citroen). The one in my Focus is the DW10C, same as in the 308/RCZ, etc.
I did see a young corsa driver the other day, had his cap on sideways and everything, did make me laugh.
We have had a "new shape" corsa rental recently on holiday, gutless after about 2.5k, tipped about and brakes didn't inspire much confidence. Interior plastics were nasty, the only worse rental car we had been in was the Kia. A Kia is pointless in the Canary islands, it can't get up the damn hills and the air con is useless.
Ford's aren't perfect but they definitely seem to be better drivers cars.
There is a reason Ford are the only brand to have two nameplates among the global top five best-sellers:
