Repeat the 'Italian style' mantra enough times and you too might end up believing that the Focus C-C has all the elegance of a tailored Italian suit. Designed and developed with Pininfarina, and assembled by the Italian company in Turin, you may see hints of 'Italian tourers from the carrozzerias'. Or not. Certainly there is some neat use of chrome above the doors and along the boot lid, and the kickup of the rear shoulders is firm and purposeful. But the proportions are seriously lumpy.
Roof down, windows up, wind deflector in place, you could cross continents with hardly a hair out of place and in great comfort. That's partly because the screen is so large that shorter drivers will be sitting under the header rail. That is if they haven’t taken their head off on the screen edge as they got in. The Focus may be the broadest in the rear seat department but rear legroom is poor-to-ridiculous; the Eos is vastly better. A sports car? Nice thought, but no.

RE: Ford Focus Coupe-Cabriolet TDCi CC-2 (2006) CAR review
My friend got good Ford Focus Reviews. He buys that car. Car is good performing but sometimes it gives problem. It gives problem while starting. Mechanic said that problem is because of cold weather.
