Let me take nothing from the performance/handling, those are all good things, and I do love a 5 cyl engine... But this car is a chav tracksuit... It's only for NEDS!

My daughter has one of these, 3 door version and in the Blue and IMO that's the only good thing about it.

Looks like a Halfords edition of a regular Focus.

I am sure they drive well enough but it will never be cool.

Cool but only in a dark subtle colour, not in shouty orange or green.

Performs well enough, looks well enough, drives well enough.

But owned exclusively by idiots and usually found nestled 3 inches from your back bumper, headlights+foglights blazing.

Uncool, almost seriously so.

Another hot hatch?
Yawn...

Ford...?
Wake me up, when they have the commercial break, that's more interesting.

And that garish orange?
Could it be more chavtastic?

Uncool... Good Night!
