5 reasons to buy the 2010 Ford Focus

1. Sedan and coupe body styles

If you're shopping for a sensible compact car that also reflects your style and personality, you'll love the 2010 Ford Focus. Parents doing the school run and colleagues who are carpooling will appreciate the Focus sedan's four-door style, enabling easy passenger access. On the other hand, young executives and seniors enjoying their freedom years may prefer the curb appeal of the two-door Focus coupe. Both body styles share the same trunk capacity (13.8 cu-ft) and excellent rear-seat legroom (36.1 inches).

2. Soothing interior

Beyond its emphasis on practicality, the 2010 Ford Focus has some features that lend an air of tranquility to the cabin interior. If you like the idea of easing yourself into the day, the subtle blue-light glow of the dash and console features softens their impact while losing none of the aesthetic. Choose the SEL or SES trim for customizable ambient lighting, with seven available tones to match your mood, music, or team colors on game day.

3. More mileage, fewer fill-ups

With great fuel economy comes great potential. All 2010 Ford Focus models are powered by a 140-hp 2.0L inline-four engine paired with a standard manual or available automatic transmission, getting an EPA-estimated 28 mpg combined.

 Why not head to the next town for an antique fair, or go to a new restaurant in the city? Trying something new feels much more doable when your fuel gauge doesn't dictate the decision-making. 

4. Peace-of-mind tech for family sharing

New for the 2010 Focus is the Ford MyKey® system, a programmable monitoring system for parents and guardians who share a vehicle with their teens, or roommates who prefer to share one vehicle for practical or green-conscious reasons. MyKey technology allows you to set limits for your teen driver or trusted pal, including speed limiting functionality and automatic reminders to support seat belt use. In practice, it's subtle yet direct enough to encourage good habits and neighborly driving manners.

5. Available SYNC® system

Included in option packages for the SE trim and higher, Ford's SYNC® technology takes your in-cabin entertainment and drive-related functionality to the next level. Plug in your music player or compatible cell phone with Bluetooth® compatibility, and SYNC will unlock their functionality via your own voice-activated commands. Select your favorite road trip songs, call ahead to check your reservation, or get turn-by-turn directions for your B&B getaway. Ford SYNC ensures everything stays hands-free, so you can stay hands-on.
