Same exact thought I had coming from a GTI and driving the ST. For a daily driver the interior is important to me and the focus just didn't cut it. Small, cramp and a dash that looks like it came from a bad sci-fi movie. I really wanted to like it, but was underwhelmed.
Fun to drive, maybe not as stupid fun as the mazdaspeed 3 was, but definitely more mannered.
