2005 Ford Focus Hatchback ZX5 S 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is a great car for its price. The interior could use some redesign, for example you can't roll down the window when you have a drink in the door cup holder. It is extremely responsive - "its low center of gravity allows you to take corners faster than you realize", (at least thats what I said to the officer who pulled me over last weekend for taking a corner too fast). The sound system is beefed up compared to other cars in its class. Also the mods that are available are endless.


Best Features

Throttle response. Radio maneuverability. Cornering, unique style.


Worst Features

Cupholders in the doors, does not come with a locking glove box - I wish it did.

2005 Ford Focus Hatchback ZX5 S 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Great little car with sporty handling, good fuel economy, and lots of flexible space. It parks in spaces too tight for most other available cars except the cramped Mini and cheap Chevy Aveo. It's got better handling than and a ride superior to the Hyundai Elantra, the Scion triplets (though the boxy XB has more and more flexible interior space), and other cars in its class. It doesn't have the cramped feeling of the Corolla, the Pontiac Vibe, the Civic.


Best Features

Flexible interior space, European styling.


Worst Features

None.
