The only car allowed for the US market is the Mustang. This is SUV/CUV/whatever V territory. Thanks to SUV loving Americans, at least we get the SUV version.

I like it a lot! Very good looking car, inside and out.


Too bad it won't make it here.

I thought the FoST is getting an e-lsd instead of a mechanical locking unit.

I will have to test drive this.

somewhat decent. rear 3/4 view is good. front end looks a little too suv/crossover for this car.

This is one million billion times better looking than the old one.

Shout out to the new Fiesta and Focus both looking awesome and us not getting them thanks to tariffs.

Do not give us Civic Type R, give us Civic Type R = Win
Do not give us Ranger, give us Ranger = Win
Do not give us Focus ST, give us Focus ST later = Win?

The Veloster N whatever really upped the game in this segment though.

I don't understand how one (two and three) manufacture said there are no interest in cars, while others are all in, ***** deep. Is this an example of glass half full vs empty?

Hyundai have no trucks. Yes, they are trying to bring their version of the Ridgeline to market. It seems like Hyundai is not scared of the no trucks/SUV line up.

Are we being "told" that all we want are $78,000 trucks and $80,000 SUVs? Sometimes consumers are dumb and buy what we are told we should. It's easier to do marketing and engineering. You don't need math.

Let's remember a time with Ford was bad *** in the compact sport class.



I wanted this back in the old days. Recall when we all want JDM? I wanted my U.S. Ford Escort to be Euro before that.

If the Ford/Mazda partnership didn't dissolve I'm guessing this is similar to what a new MS3 would be, although the last generation (10-13) made similar numbers.

I love this car a LOT more than the old Focus ST - the only thing I'm not a fan of is the E-LSD..

**** Ford for pulling out of the car market.

I had a 78 Buick Regal with 3.8L V6 with 3 speed automatic. The optional 5.0L V8 gets 30 MPH hwy with 4 speed automatic (mid 80s model). Ok, it only had 145hp. Torque was like 265lb. It was no sports sedan, but it did move ok. The weight of the car was like 3600lbs. This made me think did we really made improvements in efficiency in the last 40 years?

Yes, not available. Fans will demand it. Therefore, want it. So maybe they will import a few from China to sell in the U.S.
