    Those cars really look amazing, I would want to badly to try to drive them!
    The lines of the design inspire strength and power, so tempting!

    These designs are fabulous and I think they will really help the Focus. After comparing the Focus with similar cars, such as the Cruze and Nissan Sentra — I was very disappointed in the Focus. I used and the specs just didn’t measure up for me. The Cruze is a mere $200 more than the Focus and you get much more for your money.
