2012 Ford FocusEric - Stone Mountain, GA03/09/2015
This is a compact car that is great for commuters like me, and also quite sporty. It doesn't get the fuel economy of a Toyota Prius, the power of a SkyActiv Mazda3, or the front storage and passenger accommodation of a Chevrolet Cruze, but it does adequately well in all those areas and also provides a very responsive and feature-rich driving experience. The exterior styling is exciting, and the interior styling is decent with some nice materials. It has some undesirable characteristics in its transmission, cabin noise, and entertainment systems, but none of these things is too particularly bad, and my overall sentiment of the vehicle is very positive. I am wholly satisfied with my purchase, and I have no regrets about it.
Fun to drive.
2013 Ford FocusDeke - Austin, TX04/20/2015
This car is a lot of fun to drive. I never really considered buying a Ford (I've owned mostly Hondas in the past), but I needed 4 doors. My previous vehicle was a 2005 Civic SI Hatchback. I loved that car.
The Focus handles very well, and goes fast when you want it to. The additional gauges on the dashboard seem a bit unnecessary and are a little distracting.
Fun, sporty, and loaded.
2012 Ford FocusN F - Chatsworth, GA08/06/2015
This car is cozy and comfortable. I'm 6'1" and I was worried about interior room before I test drove it. Even with the sunroof and spiky hair, headroom isn't an issue (lower the seat when you test drive it!) The features on the Titanium are great. The smart key works flawlessly. The navigation is a big plus and I use it often when traveling. The interior of the car is high quality.
Ford Focus Overview
The Ford Focus is known for its sharp handling, expressive styling, and interior quality, especially in more recent versions. As one of Ford's most successful vehicles, the Focus is offered with a broad set of options and features to appeal to more customers. Specifically, it's offered in a sedan and a coupe body style with a variety of trim levels for each.
Ford Focus History
Introduced in 2000, the Ford Focus stood out as a small car and became a name brand to American consumers. It received a design refresh in 2008, though under the hood, the vehicle has remained primarily the same.
How It Drives
The Ford Focus has a fantastic fuel economy due to its lightweight frame and efficient engine option. Handling is sharp due to its small, compact frame, and feels nimble going around corners. Inside, the Ford Focus boasts comfortable materials, supportive seating, and a quiet cabin.
Used Ford Focus Value
Due to the fact that each of its model year upgrades exhibit more cosmetic changes than performance, the Ford Focus will drive similarly for all vehicles. Though the more recent Focus will emphasize performance, the restyled exterior will be the big differentiating factor between vehicles. The Focus, like each of its competitors, excels due to its fuel efficiency and affordability. Additionally, due to the Ford's many different configurations and popularity, it may be simpler for a used car buyer to find the car that has the exact features they want in a vehicle.
Ford Focus Standard Features
The Ford Focus is offered in a variety of trim levels, including: S, SE, SES, and SEL sedan trim levels as well as SE and SES coupe trim levels. A 2.0L four-cylinder engine is available on all trims and is paired with either a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic.
