Unpleasant-looking little beast, isn't it? Looks even cheaper and nastier than its previous incarnation!
Not bad, I like the exhaust detail.
If the cheap looking plastics used in this test model are the actual production plastics used, then it's probably going to look even less desireable than it does today.I know looks are subjective, but the problem for me has always been the exterior rear 3rd of the car, the fuel filler cap looks like an after-thought and the elongated light clusters are aweful, I really preferred the Mk1 focus and it's cluster arrangement....which is still the most beautiful FocusThe busy-ness of the dash is confusing and the viewing angle of the NAV system a distraction when driving, the Focus is fast losing it's identity, something you don't see in a Golf for example.
Ford as usual are still behind with looks, and as for the front of the car!! well it is so ugly put you off right from the first look, wake up ford design something new for a change or go back to the mk1 and elongate the floor pan and include a bigger boot.
i think youll find that there are plastic coverings on the front bumper, hence the ugliness..
