Review: 2013 Ford Focus

The 2013 Ford Focus builds off the very popular redesign in 2012. You see a lot of these models on the road today. With their great fuel economy, wide range of features and the unmistakable styling, it only takes one test drive to see why all your friends are coming back to Ford.

When you talk about the Focus, you have to talk about its fuel economy. The Focus gets up to 37 MPG on the highway! At a time when gas prices are well above the $3 mark and sometimes approach that $4 mark, you’ll need a car like this 2013 Ford Focus. Ford is helping you stay away from the gas pump.

Next of course is that distinctive Ford Focus styling. Jaws dropped when the Ford Focus was introduced last year, and that unmistakable front grille, quality down the sides and rear of the Focus returns this year. That design was such a hit that Ford has carried it over to other popular redesigns, including the Ford Escape and Ford Fusion.




Ford also puts a lot of effort into making sure the Focus has some of the best in vehicle technology. Probably the best available feature is the Active Park Assist. Better than a typical backup camera, the Ford Focus has active sensors and will actually parallel park itself with almost no input from you!

Other great available features include SYNC with MYFord Touch. Highlights of MyFord Touch include hands-free calling, voice control over your music, Bluetooth audio from wireless listening of your smart music, including Pandora,  and SYNC will even read your texts as you drive – no more checking your phone.

Of course it also has many other great features, including available push button ignition, climate control, heated cloth or leather seats and sunroof.

It’s also one of the safest models on the road today, earning a 5-star score with the NHTSA.

Because of the great fuel economy, 44.8 feet of cargo space, and all the available features, MSN Autos says the Focus is one of the best cars for small families.

U.S. News and World Reports calls the Ford Focus one of the Best Cars for the Money.



The well-rounded, well-built 2013 Ford Focus stands as one of the top choices in an increasingly competitive segment.  Nimble handling; refined and quiet ride; stylish and well-made interior; lively engine; abundant list of upscale and high-tech options.

The Ford Focus is designed to meet the high demands of small car buyers today. It’s fun, attractive, well-equipped, but also affordable. It’s changed the nameplate’s image, from unremarkable to best in class, in many ways. It’s also our 2012 Best Car To Buy winner, as much for its trend-leading features as for its excellent front-drive handling.
