2013 Ford Focus ST Long Term Road Test

2013 Ford Focus ST: Small Cargo Space

February 5, 2013

2013 Ford Focus ST

That is not a big bike in stuffed into the back of our long-term Ford Focus ST. It's my daughter's 16-inch Tony Hawk BMX bike, which is cool, but not exactly large.

Yet, in order to fit it inside the cargo hold of the Focus I had to drop one side of its 60/40 split-folding rear seat.

Folding the seat wasn't much of an issue, although you first have to flip up the seat bottom and remove the headrest. I was just expecting more room in the rear of this hatchback. It's tight back there. Seemingly tighter than the 23.8 cubic feet Ford claims.

This is not the vehicle for hauling four passengers and their luggage to the airport.
