I'd say is was very true,I've only driven the ST220 but it made any Mk1 Mk2 i've been in/driven seem crap in comparison. So much so i nearly cried driving my MK1 again.Fox2 said:Of course, logically, the Mk3 is a better car than the MK2. Ford would have had to have screwed up quite badly to make the Mk3 a backward step.
So, in every possible way bar asthetics becuase these are subjective, the Mk3 is a better car.
But is it a considerably better car? I'm not so sure - I've yet to find anything nice enough to make me think the cash to upgrade to the Mk3 would be money well spent.
If I was chosing again, obviously, it'd be a Mk3. But to say its leaps and bounds ahead of the Mk2 is untrue.
