Ford has really upped their game this new vehicle.
The new focus provides a perfect balance between being a “fun to drive” sporty car and a practical fuel-efficient vehicle.
The focus is not as fun to drive as a Mazda 3, but gets much better gas mileage.
In turn, it does not get as good gas mileage as a Prius, but is much more fun to drive.
The focus finds the happy medium.
The handling of the car was much better than I anticipated.
It holds corners well and the steering is very responsive.
City – 30; Highway – 37-38; Combined 34.
Coming from a Jeep Liberty which got 17, I am a happy camper!
