Quick commuter car

Vehicle2003 Ford Focus SVT 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
ReviewAfter test driving several other econo- boxes I was feeling very uninspired. I was looking for resonable economy but fun-to-drive factor, too. After taking the Focus SVT 5-door for a test drive I was sold. Great handling and brakes, interior upgrade is far above typical econo-box fare, spirited engine response (at higher rpm). This car is great fun to drive, is smooth on the highway and is amazingly quiet at highway cruising speed. The SVT team did a great job on the suspension. It's firm, but not harsh, nimble, with little lean in the corners. So far, I'm very happy with this car.
Best FeaturesUnderstated but mildly tricked-out exterior looks, zippy motor, 6-speed trans., GREAT suspension, quiet interior, nice sound system - all you need for spirited commuting.
Worst FeaturesPackaged like the other SVT vehicles - where's the supercharger!?! A little more torque between 1k and 2k rpm.
