The zx2 not only gets much better gas mileage (28-36mpg)once it's broken in but it is also quicker accelerating than not just the Focus Zx3 but ALSO the Focus SVT! I mean one wonders why all this marketing effort is going into hyping up the slightly restyled (new edge) yet still old fashioned euro box hatchback style. Brakes from 60-0 in 128 feet. To compare the mustang does in 127 feet. That's safety folks! The Japanese cars and VWs are far worse than that.
Pros: Great gas mileage. Far above expected performance and handling for a car in this class and price range. Versatile and functional.
