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.
