Ford Focus Overview
For 2015 the Focus has received a midcycle freshening that includes a new grill. Available as a sedan, a hatchback, and an electric version, the Focus is among the better compacts. It's fun to drive, thanks to its agile handling and steady ride. The cabin is quiet, with rich-feeling materials. An available 123-hp, 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbo, shared with the smaller Fiesta, is new, paired with a six-speed manual. We tested a Fiesta with the three cylinder and a five-speed manual, and found it got excellent fuel economy but required frequent shifting to keep the engine in its narrow power band. A rear-view camera is now standard. Reliability has been below average. A high performance Focus RS with a 2.3-liter four-cylinder turbo from the Mustang will be available in 2016.
