I'll be flying in to Las Vegas tomorrow morning for CES and flying home late Friday. The Ford Focus will definitely be one I check out at the show for sure! :D

That's a nice looking car, but the sloped roofline looks like anyone over 5' will hit their head. It might just be the angle of the picture though.

It is same as the focuc hatch 2012 ICE. Rear head room is actually quite good - an inch more than Leaf.

New Focus is a nice looking car! Big improvement over current model. Looks better than the Leaf. Still, I trust Nissan to get it right more than Ford. I think this project is an after-thought for them.
2013 lease ended, purchased a red 2015 SL Premium from Ray Ishak at Magic Nissan. Good deal + rebates + $7500 tax credit + no sales tax = Leaf for Sentra money.

Yup! As long as American Auto Execs and Oil execs are the same people, it is best to steer clear. I wish U.S. auto manufacturers all the best but only Tesla is independent of the Oil Industry.

Yes, an afterthought. Infact, Magna took a focus and converted it. It came out so well, Ford decided to productionize it. So all the draive train is actually made by Magna.

The hatch has a European look, rather than American. Ford is also bringing over the European look to its new Escape.
