I'm 90% sure they're built in Germany, which means build quality should be excellent.

i'll answer one question at a time.
Engine is Based on same family as mazda6, however is greatly improved. Diesel Is different, and XR5 Turbo has similar setup to Focus XR5 turbo.

I will check on the Mp3 Decoder tomorrow.

yes is built in germany, and build quality is EXCELLENT.

Pricing.
LX Auto $29990 Plus On Roads (Sedan Only)
Zetec Auto $34990 Plus On Roads (Sedan/Hatch)
TDCi Auto $37990 Plus On Roads (Sedan/Hatch)
XR5 Turbo Man $41990 Plus On Roads (Hatch Only)

No words can describe this car. You NEED to drive it if you are looking at any vehicle around this price range or more expensive.

No stock of petrol models until mid november.

As long build quality isnt as bad as the b series this may be a contender!
