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.

Review: 2013 Honda CR-V

The 2013 Honda CR-V follows the popular redesign of 2012. As one of the most fuel efficient and award winning vehicles currently on the road today, we always feel you cannot wrong when you choose this Honda Crossover.

One thing everyone says is that the Honda CR-V is fun to drive. We detailed the redesign in great depth last year, and were please to find that 2013 picks up where 2012 left off. The Honda CR-V is very comfortable inside, with an emphasis on quality design and a smooth ride.

The CR-V is also a Buckeye, manufactured at Honda of America Manufacturing, Inc., East Liberty Auto Plant in Ohio.

With up to 30 MPG, the Honda CR-V is one of the most fuel efficient SUVS to offer All Wheel Drive. The All Wheel Drive option was first introduced last year, and we think it’s important to have All Wheel Drive in this area.

The 2014 Kia Forte has already received a lot of fanfare with Kia hyping its debut. You’ve seen all the commercials at the Super Bowl, but now the 2014 Forte has arrived at Waikem Kia in Massillon, Ohio.

Kia took a major step to upgrade the design of the Forte, and combined with a great warranty and great features, Kia took a necessary step up in a popular, crowded field.

You have to start with styling when you talk about the Forte. The Forte is much improved on the outside. It’s 2 inches wider in the wheelbase, an inch wider across, and lower. Also, you’ll notice the LED lowbeams, new alloy wheels, and the side moldings that stretch up and down the vehicle.
