Ford Focus Summary

The Ford Focus is turning 20 years old, but it’s still a fun car to drive. Choose between sedan or hatchback body types (sport model options, too), and buckle up for a fuel-conscious ride known to be safe and comfortable. The ample legroom up front in these spacious passenger vehicles suits long daily commutes. There’s also plenty of cargo space in the trunk for weekend missions—even more so in the hatchback versions. Standard tech options include a 4.2-inch centre screen display and USB ports, with a 10-speaker Sony audio system available as an upgrade.
