saw this this morning on facebook.
I do agree it's a new Focus, but it looks like a new Mazda 3.

Wow, that is a big change if that's actually a focus. And the gas tank is on the opposite side.

It looks less tough looking but I still like it.

The wheels and back end look like a Kia, but the front does look Focus. Overall I think I'll keep my '15 based on looks alone

Hmm. Really not sure how I feel. I'll wait for more pictures...I would guess they will release more shots soon since this "leaked"

Do not really care for it at this angle

The more I look at it the more I like it actually. I'm not one to see something new and immediately hate it because it's new. If you give it time and digest it, things usually grow on you.

Like I said, a little less tough looking. But it does look more modern, specifically the roof angle and curve. And it looks more aerodynamic which is a good thing for hwy fuel economy.

Ugh. Not diggin it. Especially those wheels. It looks like a Mazda 3 to me. And if it comes out with a 3cyl, forget it. I’ll keep updating my 17 for the next 20yrs.

That is not an attractive angle... Maybe more shots will make it look a little better

Oh, it looks pretty good. As long as they don't screw up the drivetrain, I'd be interested in a new(used) ST when it appears.

Definitely looks less mean looking which I think is strictly due to the front being more round & less flat. That could definitely be an angle thing.

I think the thing that convinces me this is at least a Ford Focus is the way rear lights look over rear wheel well. Plus the rims are very similar to current premium wheels. Then the spoiler looks similar too.

But what are the chances this is just a picture of a new Ford Focus platinum or something?

edit: I guess the spoiler gives away its an ST?

Haha, “spied.” Surrrrrre. The perfect side angle, the sun hitting the car exactly right, the grill still hidden from view, even the front wheel is turned just right for this pic. You mean they could get this perfect shot but not a single other pic before they were chased away? C’mon.

This is clearly a controlled leak by whatever company Ford is using to market the new Focus.

I'm sure the car was there for a photo shoot and this person flying a drone snuck in and got a spy photo
