The 2014 Ford Focus is the best compact car you can buy. That’s according to Edmunds.com, who gave the Focus the high grades for having better technology and better style than any competitor.
“Edmunds.com has conducted multiple comparison tests with the Ford Focus and every time it has thoroughly thumped competitors that are otherwise impressive in their own right. Put simply, the Focus feels like a step above the rest. ”
The Focus, even at its base trim, looks like a high quality sports car inside and out. The hexagon grille that’s now the face of the Ford was first standard on the Focus. The inside seats are very stylish and everything about the Focus just makes it feel like the most modern vehicle on the road today.
The engine is a combination of fuel economy and power under the hood puts the Focus right up. The Focus gets up to 40 MPG when you add your SFE package.
As Edmunds says: “Whether you want a compact car that’s fun to drive or just quiet and comfy transportation, the Focus will meet your needs.”
Few compact cars have the features of the Focus. You can get a Focus with heated leather seats, backup camera, navigation, the Ford SYNC with MyFord Touch, Park Assist, push button start and the Ford MyKey System — speed controls and radio volumes that keep teen drivers safe.
“As the trim levels and options swell with high-end features like heated leather seats, it becomes shocking that anyone would opt for pricier luxury compacts like the Acura ILX or Buick Verano,” Edmunds said.
You can make it even sportier with the available ST trim, or opt for clean driving with the Focus Electric Option.
