The wagon looks a lot cleaner than the hatch and has the added visual mass and length to avoid the tippy look of the sedan.

Can the hatch please get the tail lights form the wagon?
I'm digging every type of the new Focus (okay, so I still won't drive a sedan). The wagon looks great, and would be preferred over the hatch. As it stands now, if I crashed my rabbit and had to pick up something, I'd head straight to the Ford dealership for a first glance.
My friend has the new focus Titanium edition, and it's a decent car,, but that 6spd auto tranny.. epic failz
I really like the ST .. any word on what Transmission it uses, is it shared in the ford line up?
Sporty wagons can be fun because of the sleeper factor. Most everyone expects a wagon to be slow, but the ST wagon will definitely be a peppy car
This is essentially saying it's for space, but a wagon can be a more economical option than a small SUV (purchase price and fuel economy)

Hi Ford Canada, please tell me where I can send a deposit for the ST Wagon. Oh and while we are at it I will take a new Ranger Diesel. Thank you.
Why does Europe get all the great cars while VW continues to sell bucket loads of Jetta Wagons that apparently nobody in North America wants.
While I agree that TCL has a bad habit of moving the goalposts on cars they want here (see: Astra, Fiesta, etc), I think the wagon to hatchback discussion is completely different.
The differences in usable cargo space between the 2 is dramatic in the Focus variations. The Focus hatch, due to it's steep rear glass, severely compromises the space. For someone like myself who wants to transport full size dogs, the hatch isn't close to big enough, but the Wagon would be perfect.
In the same way that my Prius hatch is great for hauling some large items, but puts the dog "under glass" (bad), and the Prus v, with it's longer, non-sloping rear roof would be quite adequate for dog hauling.
Now... whether TCL collectively runs out and actually buys any new car is always a crap shoot.
