I hope he sucks at driving, because that seemed like :08 to 60

EDIT: I just used my phone's stopwatch- got about 7.9 seconds. But that was a pretty soft launch.

Seriously Ford, you couldn't let the magazines get a hold of a few STs for testing? FU

They look fine, a bit garnish, but they are apparently comfortable and supportive. I think that was Ford's thought process.

Quite handily the ugliest seats I have ever seen. They'd be better off with some Pep Boys "sports" seat covers.

Yes give me more solid grays and blacks... domestic automakers haven't made enough of that.

I assumed he was talking about the weird patterns in the fabric. That's what bothers me. Also the fact that red is not an interior color choice, only blue, yellow, and silver with cloth seats. All black is only the all leather seat option.

Yeah, I don't care if a few random people on the internet have claimed to take delivery.. until I see one or a magazine tests one or dealers stop talking about how they aren't available for 3 months, they don't exist.

Does 'brutal' mean more spacious, comfortable and quality than a Focus?

I checked out one at the dealer last night. I might have been seriously interested if it wasn't canary yellow and didnt have the yellow seats. If I could find a white one with the smoked grey Recaros, Id be seriously tempted.
