The Ford Focus is a compact car that was designed by Ford’s European division to succeed the Ford Escort. Its manufacture and sales started in 1998 and Ford has not looked back since then. It was released as a three-door hatchback, a four-door saloon and a five-door wagon. With each new model of the Focus, Ford has endeavored to make every model they release better than its predecessors.
This is the latest model of the Focus is packed with enhancements. Its engine ranges depending on one’s needs and spending ability from the battery-electric in the Focus Electric, the turbocharged 2.0-liter engine in the Focus ST and even the Focus RS which has a 350-horsepower turbocharged 2.3-liter engine that is not short of power and acceleration.
As with previous versions, the latest Focus provides a pleasant driving experience with its smooth steering and agility. It is very steady and negotiates corners with so much ease.
The limited space for the back passengers is one of the major concerns for the otherwise perfect affordable car. Though a child may fit comfortably, an adult may not have much legroom. Bluetooth, voice recognition and USB ports all provide for a pleasant entertainment experience. The cargo space varies depending on the model, with the Focus Electric having among the smallest cargo space for all compact cars in the market.
The Ford Focus is without a doubt a must-have for those looking for economy and style.
