2013 Ford Focus ST: Rear Seat Storage

June 12, 2013

2013 Ford Focus ST

Our 2013 Ford Focus ST's backseat is roomier than you'd expect. Even with the front passengers in comfortably reclined positions, there's plenty of space in the rear and details like the unusual location of the rear cupholders factor into it.

You can't fit much more than an 8-ounce water bottle in this slot next to the rear seat, but it's thoughtful placement. I wouldn't put anything with an open top there but if there's a choice between this location and the cupholders digging into my shins, I choose here. I imagine someone using the lower, smaller pocket near the floor for a wallet, phone or maybe some of those really short golf pencils.

    FYI, the higher trim on the Focus ST, "ST3" package has a rear seat center armrest with cupholders that I believe this ST2 is missing.
