Here is what I thought...
Is that a Ford? or a Volvo C30? It looks a lot like the C30 but with a Ford price tag - nice!
It is really cute - nice curves - aggressive front grill!
This car should sell well...
Who would I aim this car at?
Young, probably female driver.
What did I like the best?
Looks and options. The options were great. Heated Seats, sunglass holder, leather wrapped steering wheel, 8" touch screen.
What was it missing?
What did I like least?
Power and acceleration. I tried to merge from a 50 km/hr ramp to 80 km/hr street and found it wouldn't climb fast enough. Later I tried to merge onto the 401 (HWY) at 60-70 and climbing tried to get in front of a Chevrolet Silverado to no avail. It was a slow climb to 100-110 km/hr but when it got there it was fine (no real noise from the engine).
Would I buy this car?
Not for my lead foot. For a younger sibling? For sure, and with Ford Canada offering Employee Pricing right now, it's a great time to do it.
|Check out the grill on this baby!|
|Nice BIG wrap around lights|
|So cute - but it's not small!|
|Back-end is like other hatch's - nice wide opening for maybe a TV Box, or an exercise machine.|
|Hopefully this gives you a feel for the length - which is close to Wagon-length|
|Extra Mirror in a Mirror - which I checked does help with cars in your side blindspot.|
|Large, good-looking tail-lights.|
|Titanium edition includes: 8" touch Screen, Sony 10 speakers, Satellite Radio, Heated Seats, Puddle Lights!|
|Comfy fabric seats. If you have kids I recommend fabric protection.|
|Seats at the back drop down in a 60/40 split. Also there is a "faux" lid that hides what's in your cargo space.|

|Sony, baby! Not Bose but Sony is pretty good.|
|Heated Seats??!! And yes, there is a 12V outlet.|
|8" Touch Screen - fun to customize !|
|Leather Wrapped Steering Wheel and the controls are all in reach. The Steering Wheel is a bit on the small size and gave me a "girly" feel.|
|Sunglass holder in the roof! Good thing they didn't forget this small but important thing.|
|Nice hard plastic on the doors - will take a good beating from shoes, etc.|
