2004 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


The SVT was not a car I had considered
but a pushy salesperson was all I
needed to get me in the driver's
seat. Needless to say I was
impressed! I would probably say that
performance was the most important
thing (after price) when I was looking
for a car. And while the SVT has
decent acceleration, it really shines
in the handling department.

It's very solid, has a well-rounded
bunch of performance upgrades (brakes,
gearbox, suspension, engine, etc.),
lots of little visual sporty touches,
and surprisingly versatile. The back
seats fold flat, which is nice for
when I need to take my bike places.

Best Features

Handling, braking, engine (although it could be a little spicier), and styling.

Worst Features

Up the power to 190-200bhp range. Eliminate the front grille turn signals. Improve service department.
