Ford Zx2 is a good practical car.

If given the choice between this and a
Focus or Honda again I would still
choose the Zx2. The car is very fun to
drive, work on, it's very quick and
outruns most cars on the road including
some V8s yet still if babied I can get
37 miles the gallon and carry a lot of
cargo. It's always been reliable and
multi-functional. I went from an SUV
to this and will never go back. Truly
can not get a car this fast, this
practical for this amount of money.
Quite possibly one of Ford's best
cars. If this was in Europe or the UK
the raving would never cease.
Acceleration 0 to 60 in about 7
seconds, Gas mileage never averaged
lower than 28mpg including city driving
sometimes get 37 mpg in summer,
versatility, you can work on it to
improve performance easily and finally
all this for the low price.
More aggressive styling. Sloping
hatchback to fit more cargo. A
performance option providing
supercharging or turbocharging or
simply as the British convert the
engine to 220hp naturally aspirated.
