Ford brought out a sport version of this car in 2005 shortly after this series focus was launched.

It was basically an LX 1.6 with alloy wheels and foglamps

so about as sporty as a house brick then



Yes that's what I said in the first post.

Yeh but the Golf is about as appealing as cold rice pudding and will have a real transaction price way above the Focus. Lets face it this "Sports" model is just to clear the decks before the new car - now on show in Paris - arrives next spring. Surprised it will sell alongside the new Focus in 2011 however. Ford last did this with the Escort that remained on sale for 18 months after the first Focus arrived to keep Halewood going before it started building X Types and with the Fiesta Classic, an old model Fiesta that sold alongside its replacement to keep the Valencia factory in business before the original KA arrived

Yes but which is more appealing a Golf or a history lesson on Ford model strategies?
