5 reasons to buy the 2018 Ford Focus

1. Hatchback and sedan body configurations

Whether you're looking for a sportier hatchback or a more traditional sedan, the 2018 Ford Focus has you covered. This compact car is available in both hatchback and sedan body styles—except for the base S trim, which is available exclusively as a sedan. Meanwhile, the performance-oriented RS trim comes only as a hatchback model.

2. Lots of trims to choose from

The 2018 Focus is available in a wide range of trim configurations to meet different driving needs. This includes the base S, SE, SEL, Titanium, and performance-oriented RS. Whether you're looking for something practical, something with more luxurious features to show off, or a model with sportier performance, there's sure to be a 2018 Focus out there for you.

3. Competitive fuel economy

The Focus has long been known for its fuel economy, and the 2018 model is no exception. While precise fuel efficiency can vary based on trim configuration and other factors, the 2018 Focus base S trim with a 2.0L four-cylinder engine, front-wheel drive, and automatic transmission gets an EPA-estimated 31 mpg combined.

4. Performance-oriented equipment

Looking for a small car that will turn heads with a sleek and sporty design? If you step up to a 2018 Focus RS hatchback model, you'll enjoy plenty of sport-inspired features that include a turbocharged 2.3L four-cylinder engine with 350 hp, a limited-slip differential, rear spoiler, and 19-inch wheels. This model also comes equipped with a torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive system that automatically adapts to changing road conditions so you can enjoy some extra confidence and control behind the wheel.

5. Indulgent features

You don't need to spend your hard-earned money on a luxury car to enjoy some indulgent features. With the 2018 Focus, stepping up to even the midrange Titanium trim will yield you heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, leather-trimmed seats, chrome exterior trim, and available remote start.

The SEL trim also offers a good mix of standard features that include an eight-inch touchscreen display, a sunroof, ambient cabin lighting, and dual-zone automatic climate control to keep you and your passengers feeling plenty comfortable and pampered.
