Hot hatches have jumped the shark, and we deserve better

I despise the phrase 'jumped the shark'. It comes from a late episode of Happy Days, where Fonzie literally jumps over a shark on water skis – at least, that's what Wikipedia told me.

2019 Ford Focus ST spied

The 2019 Ford Focus ST has been snapped testing on the Nurburgring, revealing its aggressive bodykit and diffuser in greater detail than before. In keeping with the heavily-camouflaged vehicle we snapped in April, the ST looks like a regular Focus on steroids, with pumped-up air intakes up front and a subtle side skirt, along with 19-inch alloy wheels from the current-generation ST offered overseas...
