The Ford Focus has frequently appeared on Car and Drivers “10 Best” because of its ride, handling, interior details and fuel economy. This latest generation Ford Focus Hatch has enough trim levels, engine options and available equipment to suit every buyer. Even in it’s most basic form, the Focus Hatch is an attractive everyday vehicle. Creases running along the side give it a sporting character while the upscale “dragon-eye” headlight and taillight clusters eliminate any feel of “cheapness” to the little hatch. Allowing for increased personalization are the twelve different available wheel options ranging from the standard 16-inch wheels to the forged 19-inch RS wheels. Those looking for a sportier design and feel should take a look at the ST with its center mounted exhaust, roof-mounted rear spoiler, and aggressive front fascia. However, if you’re looking for a true expression of performance with everyday usability then the hardcore Focus RS is right for you. Flared wheel arches, a larger rear spoiler, aggressive diffuser, and a high performance front chin splitter clearly distinguish the RS from the rest of the Focus range.
The Focus Hatch was four engine options available beginning with the standard 160-hp, 2.0L inline four. If fuel economy is your primary concern then the super economical 1.0L three-cylinder motor might be best for you. A first for Ford in the US, this tiny little engine provides best-in-class fuel economy while still providing enough pep for everyday use. If you’re looking for a little extra power then the ST’s turbocharged 2.0L engine with 252-hp might be better suited for you. A torque-vectoring front differential adjusts power between the front wheels to keep you planted even during hard cornering. But if it’s all-out speed you are after than look no further than the Focus RS. Featuring input by none other than Rally Car Driver Ken Block, this feisty hot hatch features a 350-hp, 2.3L turbo four and sends power to all four wheels via a manual transmission. The RS also features a number of performance modifications including launch control, stock turning, high-performance brakes, and even a “drift” mode. Without a doubt the Ford Focus RS is a true performance hatchback to compete against the best out there.
Although the Focus might be one of the least expensive models in Ford’s lineup, you’d hardly know by looking inside. Leather is available across all levels while the ST and RS models receive race-inspired RECARO® seats. Entertainment options range from the basic SYNC 3 system to including navigation, SiriusXM Travel Link, and HD radio. Interior comfort options include dual-zone automatic climate control and three-position heated seats.
The Ford Focus was a car that was commonly looked down on for being more cheap than cheerful however in recent years Ford has certainly managed to turn that thinking around. With responsive steering and exceptional grip and comfort, this sedan is one of Ford’s most popular cars and rightfully so. The Ford Focus’s primary competitors include the Kia Forte5, Mazda3 Hatch, and Volkswagen Golf.
