I used to own a Honda civic. When I got rid of that my husband brought me a Focus from the dealership he worked at. I drove it the first time and realized what better pick up it has and better get up and go for going up hills. The Honda seemed to struggle with hills but not my Focus! More comfortable for my long legs. Being 6 foot tall, it's hard to find a comfortable car. The Focus fits me well with room behind me for somebody to sit.
The stereo which adjusts to wind noise outside the car. It gets louder the faster I go. The leg room for my long legs. And the great get up and go!
The interior could be better quality. It looks nice but it seems to have some cheap parts. But it doesn't look cheap and they are easy parts to replace.
