2002 Ford Focus SVT
By Neil Johnson on
2002 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
Wonderful short throw shifter makes for exciting crusing around town in
start/stop situations. Winter package matches need for block heater with the
need for heated seats (now my equivalant of air conditioning in summer).
Great performance on highway, quiet and smooth even well above speed
limit, as expected on a car with this background.
I added tinting to the rear windows, which sharpens the stock appearance.
This car has the versitility of a hatchback, and includes a storage cover for
secure storage behind the rear seats. The rear seat bases fold forward,
allowing the rear seat to fold flat if additional capacity is required.
Overall performance. I'm not going to keep up with V-8 Mustangs, but this
car is FUN to drive.
More HP. I see the SVT website has a project car with a supercharger. Once
the warranty expires....
