Civic v FaceLifted Focus

Just bought Issue 990 of Auto Express, and the Civic still won over the face lifted Focus that comes out next year. Can't find any links to the article on their website yet.

I saw that magazine earlier...face lifted but still ugly and dull. No competition to be won, methinks

Do you think that the owner would be careful when opening his doors, parked next to a Civic.

1st of all - that Focus is horrid...! How and why would you do that to a perfectly good Focus! Standard alloys... and the Ghia badge still showing.... jesus!

And the Focus - my mum has had one since 2001 (Y reg), and it is still lovely to drive! Even better - nothing has gone wrong with it.
I've told her she is going to get one of the new ones next year! So when she does I will have a good drive and let you all know!

I read the review, they were critical of the Civic, I was actually surprised it won.
