Next Gen Focus Shows Its Face
 
Well, maybe...


Boasting a wild new look dominated by an outrageous grille it will be a real head-turner, and is set to polarise opinion like never before.

Power comes from the very latest EcoBoost range of turbocharged engines, while the cabin will feature an all-new BMW iDrive-style control system. As with the Mondeo, the Focus will head further upmarket with greater emphasis on quality as well as a higher price tag than the current generation.
Suffice to say I have a few questions about that article... :hmm:

I think it would be a mistake for Ford to price this thing out of its current market. That's what makes them so appealing, IMO... it definitely isn't the styling!

BMW iDrive-style control system.
HMMM. I thought people hated iDrive on the BMW. Why should Ford waste their time with that crap. They have sync, which is much better

Not liking it

Guys, this is Auto Express. They took the Capri concept, Photoshpped it, and then put it up as "the Capri is back!"

Yeah, that happened.
I'll wait until someone beside AE is saying these things before I believe them.

People just use the idrive as an example of an input device cause everyone is fimilar with it, and its not the idea that is crap in the bmw its the interface and how the software works.

Highly unlikely that it's the next Focus.

On the other subject: the new iDrive (e.g. in the 2009 3 and 5-Series) is completely new and a huge improvement over the original one, about which the guys at Top Gear said it should be called "iDistract and then iCrash".

Everytime Auto Express shows a preview photo of a future model it's always a chopped speculation and never representitive of what will actually be produced.

Auto Express is more if a comic than a serious motoring magazine. :shame:

Let's hope that's true as this is a face only a blind mother could love.
