    400 hp from that engine (OEM) is pretty amazing really. It looks good too.
    My perception is the cars are getting bigger and heavier with each generation though.

    Absolutely. Even the front on that car looks better for some reason.

    I was thinking the same thing. I think it's the deeper and simpler front bar treatment. The standard Focus design is very busy front on.

    So from the article this is obviously an artists impression but I think show potential.

    Because it’s a RHD country of orgin or ownership our chances, in theory, at least are good but was the last model really a success?

    The engine issues certainly didn’t help and despite the cries of “sold out” dealer had stock on hand for a while.

    I like this car, I like the idea of it and had Sprint not came out at the same time, I may well have one now. With the drama I had getting my Sprint I was very tempted to swing over and take the dealerships RS allocation instead.

    I like that pic.......
    Having seen the new model live at the cairns dealership the other day I can picture the RS as the pic.
    The one I saw was a bronze colour and yes they look a bit more vanilla like most of the hatchs now but if the RS comes as that will look good and IF that low.

    I can see myself in that. Really hope it can look exactly like that.
