Hi! I did this render of a future Ford Focus in Photoshop. Only the wheels and background are copy/paste.





based on this sketch:


I hope you like!

Nice! Where did the sketch come from - Ford? If so, I'd say they are emulating the forthcoming Chevy Volt (below).

That looks awesome. Well done.

On a side note, I hate the Ford logo. I think it's about time they modernized it / revamped it / changed it completely.

front grill, styling of lights, rear lights, side window arch, metal stripe on window. If you smooth out the astra's arches you get a very similar look.

And after looking again at it this morning it looks even more like the vw iroc and the next audi a3

I think all hatchbacks are starting to look the same. I think it all started with the relaunch of the new mini-- now everyone is squaring them up a little more and the roundedness is going away.

I hope you work for Ford - they would be lucky to have designers like you - I really like it... Sometime ago I used to drive a Ford, but mechanically it gave way too many problems so now - I'm in a BMW...

I've always been in the compact tuner, so if Ford makes anything close to your sketch, I'm in - especially if they give me any of the WRC mechanics as an option... You should pass it to Ford...

Your render looks really good.

I've no doubt you'd do a million times better than whoever came up with these monstrosities:

At least the mutipla gets six people in comfotably with luggage and gets them from A -> B.

My observations on the rendering are:

[1] It looks too much like a sports car.
[2] It looks like theirs bugger all room for rear passengers.
[3] Or for putting anything in the boot.
[4] How would a 4 door version work?

So does a herd of camels.

I'm talking about the design of the vehicle, not its comfort or practicality.
