Sub zero in green, cool and understated in blue, 'orrible in white

Colour is everything and a car like this needs to be in your face and loud. Green all the way

Oh and it is an absolute storming car too, and i would love one

I would like an orange or green one. They are probably fantastic drives especially with the 5 pot.
It is not cool though, no way. To new by far and in your face. These are super car uncool.

Chavvy, wannabe gangster transport for people who used to buy Imprezas. Likely to be the dream car of teenagers in Saxos who hang around outside Macdonalds with their hands down the front of their tracky-bottoms-tucked-in-socks. Seriously uncool.

How would you tell it was modified? It already looks like someone covered it in velcro and ram-raided Halfords.

This is a car to have a laugh in....or at if you are on the outside.

It's a pumped up thug of a car playing at WRC and making sure we all know it and I'm sure it is "fun" for certain types of person. It is simply the next step on from Mica blue STI's with huge diameter aftermarket exhausts capable of swallowing the owner's pet pit-bull and be-smeared with 555 stickers down the side.

I love the radicality of it and the lurid paint is kinda "right" on a pastiche-mobile like this. You can sense a certain "wrong-side of the tracks" appeal even with your sensible head on.

Under the surface Ford has done a fair job of it according to the reviews but hey, what the heck has that got to do with being cool? No doubt it is a riot to drive and is adored by part-time rioters.

Seriously uncool. Seriously.


Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

You should go to the American Tatton Classic. Hard to believe you can ruin a PT Cruiser, but you can.

I have witnessed many crimes against taste at that sort of show. As for the focus? No, on two counts...

1) its a chav wagon
2) its a Ford focus. No Ford in the current range is, has been, or will ever be cool.

Last cool Ford was the escort cosworth. The world has changed since then.
