Hot hatchbacks should not be stealthy. I coworker of mine recently purchased a new Ford Focus ST, in silver. Silver?!? It’s the hottest hatchback Ford has ever sold in the US of A, and it unfortunately looks like a rental in silver. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Focus ST; it’s on my very short list of cars from 2013 that I would actually buy with my own money, and it’s definitely the best of the latest round of hot hatchbacks (although I must say I prefer the European version with 5 doors rather than the tri-door example they sell over here). But really, all hot hatchbacks should be stupidly bright colors (I’m a big fan of Ford’s “Performance Blue”), or at least not stealthy silver, that should be reserved for fast sedans where flying under the radar is the main idea.
