The all-new Ford Focus made a pretty big splash when it debuted at the Detroit Auto Show this past January. The new car, which will be offered in both sedan and hatchback flavors, rides on the automaker's new global C-car platform, and the version that America gets won't be noticeably different from the European model. A good thing, as we've been crying for Euro-tuned Foci for years, though it's safe to assume that the hot new Focus wagon won't be headed to our shores.

Aside from more road-worthy wheels and tires, the only noticeable difference is a small spoiler on the sedan, which will more than likely be either an option or a trim level designation. If we're honest, we much prefer this car with a spoiler-less rear end, or maybe with a subtle lip spoiler at most. (Sidebar: If you squint your eyes, does anyone else see a bit of the Escort ZX2 echoed in the Focus sedan's rear shape?)

Don't expect to see the showroom-ready Focus for quite some time, though - its 2012 model year designation means that we have to wait until the new calendar year before seeing these little guys on the road.

I was NOT HAPPY with the Ford marketing lady's answer to a caller on Autoline about the lack of a 3-door Focus and Fiesta for the USA. She had the nerve to say nobody wants them. Blah on her.
