The Ford Focus, redesigned most recently in 2012, is Ford’s compact sedan line. It is one of Ford’s best selling vehicles and competes directly with the Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla. Available models include a sedan, hatchback, and hatchback electric vehicle. Further upgrading was done with the 2015 models. Current model trims include S, SE, Titanium, ST, and RS.
The newest addition to the Focus line is the sport hatchback RS. Introduced to the US market in 2016, the RS might be considered a tough ST with additions such as all-wheel drive, a sharp body design, upgraded sport suspension, and high-grip tires. The 350 horsepower engine delivers 0-60 mph times under 4.6 seconds.
The current generation of the Ford Focus is offered as a four-door sedan and five-door hatchback. Good fuel efficiency is offered on all trims, with a new direct injection engine offered on the special SFE trim. Ford used the Focus structure when developing its hybrid C-Max and plug-in hybrid C-Max Energi. The latest engine addition is a turbocharged 1.0 liter 3-cylinder engine joined to a 6-speed manual transmission, signaling a shift in consumer thinking toward smaller and more efficient vehicles. If you want performance, the ST offers a 252 horsepower turbocharged 2.0 liter inline 4-cylinder engine and a sport-tuned suspension. There is also a limited production Focus Electric only offered in selected US locations.
The Focus first appeared on the market in 2000 as a replacement for the Ford Escort. It remains the standard in Ford’s compact vehicle line. It has seen various iterations in trim as two-door and four-door sedans, three- and five-door hatchbacks, and a small station wagon. The Focus lost its place as a compact entry-level vehicle when the Fiesta was introduced later.
The Ford Focus offers good interior room for a compact sedan or hatchback, a choice of engines from highly efficient to powerful, and reasonable comfort features for most drivers.
