This car is my company car. It has ABS and traction control, as well as Sync. The radio is disappointing - It fades in and out, like the digital receiver isn't always picking up those Fm stations clearly. No static, just high quality sound to all of a sudden poor quality sound. The exterior is not attractive. I've heard "at least this is better than before." I disagree. I think the old Focus was quite attractive, and Ford should have totally reengineered it (i.e., the new Euro Focus) rather than reskin this one - it just isn't up to par. That being said, I love the traction control; it's very reassuring while driving in snow. The interior is functional and attractive, w/ nice lighting.
Interior lighting and design, traction control, fuel economy, the solid feel of the build quality (the doors have a satisfying "thud"), the scissor type hinges on the trunk make it easier to load things
Exterior design, radio, bring back the hatches and ditch the coupe, more power. Bring us the Euro Focus!
