    New Focus ST

    Now I know this won't go down well on here, But I've always been a fan of fords.

    But I'm very unsure on the new ST.

    Personally I prefer the current Focus ST/RS. The new one looks like a clumbsy elephant at the front.

    Personally its alot better looking than current & hopefully better made given the appalling quality of current fitments.

    Not sure about the back lights and the fact it's only going to be available as a 5 door. Overall though I really quite like it. IF it's as good as the old one it's likely to be a very capable car

    Interior doesn't look too bad. Would prefer a 3dr version though.

    i always dislike the look of most new cars.

    But i find when i see them on the road and in the metal i begin to like them.

    I used to hate the look of the new clio RS but when it came out and i test drove it i loved it, same for the current ST.

    Nothing wrong with the ford ST range at all,build quality is very very good in the STs

    I actually quite like the look of that.

    I think it's better than the current ST.

    And I can almost guarantee there'll be an RS version of it.....lol

    The ST's grown on me a little, but I'm still not sure. The front and back just don't look right to me.
    I'd rather save my pennies for the RS3 if it ever appears.

    Yeah, that does seem stupid. I take it there'll be other Focus models available in 3 door, so why not have it available on the ST? Unless the whole Focus range is going to be 5 door now.

    And it'll look a bugger with a plate on it.

    I thought ford had a really nice range a couple of years ago, Fiesta/Focus/Mondeo were all nice looking. I'm not to sure on the latest bunch though. The new KA is vile too.

    One of the most hideous cars ive seen in a long time, can't believe they actually allowed this to leave the drawing board! And the colour choice is terrible, with the gaping grill, an open mouthed gold fish comes to mind.
