Ford Focus Overview

The 2015 Focus has received a mid-cycle freshening, with styling updates to conform with the current Fusion and Fiesta. Ford says the Focus, available as a sedan, hatchback, and an all-electric Focus EV version, will be quieter-riding and improve upon its already-impressive agility. A new powertrain is the 123-hp, 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbo, already available on the Fiesta, using a six-speed manual. In the subcompact Fiesta that engine, with a five-speed manual, got impressive fuel economy and provided good acceleration. But it had to work hard and rev high to get the car up to speed. A rear-view camera, using either a 4.2-inch screen or the uplevel MyFordTouch 8-inch screen is now standard. Reliability has been below average.
