FoMoCoNews.Com:New Chinese Focus

After North America and Europe got their new versions of the Focus, China is about to get its own version. We unofficially have details on Chinese focus which seems to have gotten its kinetic these from Europe instead of the America.
A closer look at the car reveals that its loosely based on the older model and the revisions are not as extensive as the European version. The interior seems to have been Kugarized.
We think its probably powered by a Ford 4 banger duratec similar to the ones offered in the other markets. Do not take our word for it. Other than the pictures, we are just speculating

I think I like the front end on these compared to the drastic front end on the North American versions. They have the Fiesta like Front end. Maybe were seeing something that might happen for ours??

Proud leasee of a 2015 Ford Focus EV. MPG = infinite

I agree with you I prefer the euro version over the american version of the focus. The Euro focus is a work of art whereas the U.S focus was probably designed by a bunch of preschoolers. if I have to rate the three versions on a top three scale it would go like this

1. euro focus

2. chinese focus

3. U.S Focus

Re: FoMoCoNews.Com:New Chinese Focus

I *loved* the Focus concept presented in China

am real curious to see how they did the hood - the part under the plastiwrap
but not too hopeful....
don't care for the ip nor ep (instrument / entertainment-panels)
(is it petty?) I hate the needles on the gauges

ps Welcome aboard, Gmfan1111!!!!

only 43 shopping days until NAIAS!
today's excuse for a POLL is: What price should the Continental $TART at?
