What You Will Like

The Ford Focus is a small car that offers a number of features otherwise seen in larger or more luxurious vehicles. For instance, the Focus is the first vehicle in its class to offer Active Park Assist, which can actually guide and steer the car into a parking space if the driver moderates speed with the brake. It's also the first small car to offer Ford's MyFord Touch system, which relies on a sophisticated touch-screen system and has advanced voice-command features and can even provide Wi-Fi for the car and the area surrounding.

Technology aside, the new Focus stands out from the class for its excellent handling and poise, sporty driving feel and impressive fuel economy.

Introduction

The Ford Escort is getting long in the tooth, having last been redesigned for the 2012 model year, but it still offers a good combination of ride and handling attributes. The Focus comes in sedan and hatchback versions, with front-wheel drive standard and a choice of powertrains.

Little has changed for the 2016 model year, except for the emergence of a greatly improved Sync 3 infotainment system. Installed in much of the 2016 lineup, Sync 3 replaces the much-criticized, non-intuitive MyFord Touch interface. Sync 3 has a capacitive screen, streamlined menus, smart-charger USB ports, and AppLink capability.

Conveying a sportier aura than many compact sedans and some hatchbacks, the Focus comes in a broad range: from budget-priced Focus S to luxurious Focus Titanium trim and high-performance Focus ST.

Offered only with a 6-speed manual gearbox, the Ford Focus ST can reach 60 mph in a frisky 6.3 seconds.

Reaching further yet, a super-performance Focus RS with all-wheel drive joins the lineup late in the model year as a 2016 model.

Most models hold a peppy 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 160 horsepower, teamed with either a 5-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed PowerShift dual-clutch automatic transmission. Buyers can choose instead a 1.0-liter EcoBoost turbocharged three-cylinder engine, now available with a 6-speed automatic transmission as well as manual shift.

Also available, on a limited basis, is the Focus Electric, which is EPA-rated at 105 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent).

Outward visibility is quite good compared to other compact cars, although rearward vision can be an issue. However, a rearview camera comes standard. You can even get Active Park Assist, which actually steers the car into a parking space.

Ford offers a selection of safety features, including a Blind Spot Information System as well as Lane Keeping Assist. Unfortunately, you need to step up to a higher trim level to obtain such features, and some of the latest forward-collision and automatic-braking technologies aren’t available at all.

Built on a global structure engineered to meet international crash-test standards, Focus has earned top Good ratings in all categories, for tests conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Sole exception was an Acceptable score in the more rigorous small-overlap frontal test. Testing by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration resulted in a five-star overall rating, with five-star scores for frontal and side crashes. A rearview camera and driver’s knee airbag are standard.

Lineup

The 2016 Ford Focus comes in sedan and hatchback versions. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.

Focus S sedan ($17,225) includes the 2.0-liter engine, manual transmission, air conditioning, CD player, tilt/telescopic steering wheel, cloth upholstery, and 15-inch steel wheels. Automatic ($1,095) is optional. SE sedan ($18,515) or hatchback ($19,015) adds cruise control, 16-inch alloy wheels, foglamps, and Ford’s MyKey. An SE Sport Package includes a touring suspension, 17-inch wheels, and, with automatic, paddle shifters.

Focus Titanium sedan ($23,225) or hatchback ($23,725) get dual-zone climate control, automatic transmission, 10-speaker Sony audio, Sync 3, HD radio, sport suspension, and navigation.

Focus ST hatchback ($24,425) features the 252-hp turbo, manual shift, unique fascias, and 18-inch wheels. Focus RS hatchback ($35,730) has 2.3-liter turbo and all-wheel drive, plus unique front fascia and grille, partial leather Recaro seats, and sport exhaust.

Focus Electric hatchback ($29,170) includes eco-friendly heated cloth front seats, Sync 3, EcoGuide instruments, and Sony nine-speaker audio.

Walkaround

Among the most extroverted-looking compact cars, Ford Focus feels more upscale than its rivals. Whether in four-door sedan or five-door hatchback form, it teases the eye with its sporty air.

2015 brought a modest restyling, led by a wide oval grille, like the Fusion and Fiesta. Sheetmetal shaping mimics other Ford models. Curves and creases mate with a smooth front end. Protruding fenders echo the Focus’s arched roofline. Immense taillamps frame the rear corners.

The high-performance ST and hotter-yet RS stand out enough to attract the enthusiast crowd, with their bigger wheels and modestly lower stance.

Interior

Nothing about the Focus suggests that it’s merely a small car. Details grasp at your attention. Trim elements look classy and well-tailored. Careful sculpting suggests complexity, while the refined Focus is almost as comfortable as a European sports sedan.

Space-efficiency, in contrast, falls short because of a constricted dashboard design. Sharp and angular, it steals knee space. Otherwise, leg space and headroom accommodate riders just over six feet, in both front and back.

Whether it’s a sedan or hatchback, rear seats are effectively contoured, though legroom could be greater. Seat-folding isn’t the easiest, and headrests interfere with the procedure.

Driving Impressions

If you’re seeking agile handling and crisp steering responses, Focus is the compact to beat. Regardless of trim level, Ford’s compact feels nimble and athletic. Naturally, ST and RS versions are the ones that set enthusiast hearts to racing.

Installed in most Focus models, the 2.0-liter engine is sufficiently spirited for nearly every driving need. At low speeds, the optional dual-clutch automatic isn’t always smooth, but it keeps engine revs high, ready to be called upon. With this automatic, the 2.0-liter Focus is among the thriftiest in its segment, EPA-rated at 27/40 mpg City/Highway. Manual shift is a bit lower (not as good).

Stepping up to a 240-horsepower Focus ST is the way to get the best handling. The well-engineered ST feels like a performance car, yet it lacks the twitchy behavior that plagues some extra-hot compacts. Premium fuel isn’t needed, and the ST is EPA-rated at 23/32 mpg City/Highway.

Beneath the hood of the new Focus RS, an EcoBoost 2.3-liter engine produces more than 300 horsepower. Full-time all-wheel drive incorporates dynamic torque vectoring. Ready to go against the high-performance Subaru WRX and STI, in particular, the Focus RS features a selectable sports suspension and heftier brakes.

At the other end of the spectrum, the high-efficiency Focus SFE gets a 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine that makes 123 horsepower, as well as a heftier 148 pound-feet of torque. The SFE is EPA-rated at 30/42 mpg City/Highway. For 2016, Ford is offering this engine with a 6-speed automatic, which loses 2 mpg compared to manual shift.

Even in basic trim, Focus is among the better-handling cars. Nicely weighted electric power steering ensures precise control, though road feel is somewhat lacking. Despite a rather firm suspension, a Focus won’t bang and bounce through harsh surfaces. Unfortunately, the Focus S and SE still halt with slightly less effective rear drum brakes.

Although a Focus rides more firmly than many small cars, passenger comfort excels. Sophisticated suspension tuning smooths out the most irksome bumps and holes. Still, road noise manages to get inside.

Summary

Ford’s Focus provides just about everything to be found in a compact sedan or hatchback. The more basic S and SE models deliver the best value, while the Titanium brings premium amenities at a comparatively reasonable price. Focus ST and RS bring performance.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
