The 2012 Ford Focus family

So far.

And by the way, the cool wagon stays in Europe.

  1. It's infuriating that the wagon isn't available here.
    It's the only version that appeals to me. The extra rear hatch space and the cleaner look are much more appealing than the other versions. I think Ford is worried that a bigger wagon version might steal sales from more expensive, more profitable SUVs.

    I would like to buy a wagon that offers the space of a midsize SUV in a simpler, cheaper package.

    Mercedes and Volvo still make nice wagons but they're way beyond my price range.

  2. If I had to chose between the Focus and TSX Wagon, it would be no contest. Ford is making a mistake with this one. I guess I'll just have to settle for a Sonata 2.0T SportWagon instead….with my 10/100,000 warranty…sigh.

  3. If you are correct Vince, that's a shame. They should offer the "cool" wagon with AWD here in the US. At least we're getting the 5 door, so they are showing signs of intelligence.

  4. These look great and I think they'll do well….depending on how "premium" the premium pricing is. I still don't like the MASSIVE, probably half FAKE intakes on the front but everything else looks great. I'm a hatchback guy myself but I'd rather have the wagon. They should have made the hatchback look more like the sedan…Then it would be the best looking of the bunch. But the way it is now, it's the worst looking one. It'll be interesting to see how the Cruze and the new Elantra will do against it.

  5. Vince…the proportions of the sedan make it seem like a pretty similar size to the UK Mondeo.

    I know their 'mid sized' sedans typically are the size of our compacts – is that the case here?

    Besides that – damn…what a great looking car! The back end almost has a Passat CC look to it.

  6. I'm still trying to figure out how they are going to fit this into the lineup, unless the next Fusion is more expensive. But as of now, when Pricing a current Focus against a Fiesta, the Focus is a no-brainer and may be the steal of the Decade.
