sports car in disguise
By recharged95 on
Vehicle2004 Ford Focus SVT 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)
ReviewThis is the car with *the full package*. Not just shoving an S/C or turbo on for bragging rights, this car runs like a tuned European car WITH [some] torque. It handles, brakes, sounds (thumping stereo!), excellent road feel, and rides comfortably. Excellent daily driver for those on the go -- hatchback capability and room is excellent. This car is for people that know how to drive and wants a relaxing, involved driving experience. Unfortunately, not everyone knows how to drive and yet utilize the full potential of their car, hence it's demise :(. Only thing to look forward is most manufacturers have taken notice and are integrating SVT DNA into their lineups for better cars.
Best FeaturesHandling, braking, stereo, exhaust sound, transmission, quality, ride quality, hatchback option.
Worst FeaturesBump power from 170 to around 190 hp and lower the weight by 75 lbs. Then you'll have Lotus [Elise] performance with Ford versatility and price.
