2013 Ford Focus ST: Cargo Space Review
September 26, 2013
Some months ago I picked on our long-term 2013 Ford Focus ST for its lack of cargo space. At the time I was surprised, and a bit disappointed, that I had to fold down the hot hatch's rear seat to fit my daughter's rather small 16-inch BMX bike. Today, my tune is a different one. I'm here to praise the cargo hauling capacity of this little hatchback.
This time, knowing I had a couple of longer items to transport, I searched out the keys to the Focus. And as I had hoped, the front grille and bumper from my 1969 Chevy Camaro project car fit perfectly in the little Ford after I dropped its rear seat. A Holley carburetor, too.
As our long-term test of this turbocharged Focus is nearing its end, my affection for it, sans it odd color, continues to grow. Cool little car.
