How can Ford not see a market for this car stateside? I think its far better looking then the sedan version, and in the ST version is downright sexy! Is it a fear that it'll cut into Escape sales? That is the only possible explanation I could believe.
Personally I think the lines are better on the wagon then on any other variation of the Focus, am I the only one?

As of now US buyers still prefer SUVs/CUVs over estate/shooting brake/wagons. Even in Europe it varies greatly by region/country, from 10-40% of sales. Wagons were are niche vehicles since the advent of minivans et al.
We got a 4 door sedan Focus that is our exclusive (I prefer BTW).
I've always preferred sporty hatches and have never had a SuvCuv
it seems like most cars have less room & open-ness (not specifically visibility) for their size
to the point that I'll be looking at small Suvs/Cuvs/MPVs/C-Max in the future as well
...cargo-volume is still down my list but access to whatever room there is will surely keep me getting a 5th-door of some kind
It would sell, and many to non SUV buyers. One customer I see, the cleaning lady crews. They have been using Escort wagons for years. They are due for a replacement vehicle, and this would be perfect, A bit more room & mileage, and still easy to park anywhere.
Well Focus estate is looking quite big car capacity wise. because its long back have enough space for keep more things. I think its 5 seater car and I like the body design of this car. Thanks for sharing the car does anyone have some price idea of this car?
