I know what you mean and completely agree, but that is part of how Japanese cars are, a bit 'loud' in their design. The smoothness of the design on the Focus is much more pleasing to my eyes.Type R looks too narrow at the rear wheel arches.
I would go with focus rs.
I also heard the sound of the type R and it wasn't exciting
It's totally preference though. I don't think the Civic Type R looks bad, but it is more out there and less conservative than the Focus RS. The two cars are looking to appeal to different design aesthetics .I know what you mean and completely agree, but that is part of how Japanese cars are, a bit 'loud' in their design.

The CTR looks like a toy from the exterior. the RS has more of a sleeper look...The Focus RS does have a much smoother exterior design though. After checking out a few more pictures of both the RS and the Type R I'd have to say when it comes to the exterior the RS looks way better. Too much going on with the Type R. Now only to wait and see how the engines and suspensions perform
I'm sure that each vehicle with electrically assisted steering feels a bit different too. Maybe Honda will nail it with the Civic.What I think may harm the Type R with enthusiasts is that Honda went with an electronically assisted steering setup. I've never driven an electric setup that offered the 'right feel'. Then again that may be a personal preference and not one thats shared with a majority...
No thats incorrect, one is better then the other. In fact they both are...Sounds like its mostly personal preference, not like one is actually better than the other. I can understand how in performance oriented vehicles particularly, people might prefer the traditional setup. Younger people probably don't care so much though.
