Great value in a small car,
By Ryan on


2007 Ford Focus ZX5 SES 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


When gas prices looked like they wouldn't be headed below $3 per gallon last summer, I started looking for a more fuel-efficient car to replace my Saturn VUE. In the past year, I've had opportunities to drive several small cars (Focus, Civic, Mazda3) and midsizers (Fusion, Mazda6, Accord, G6, Maxima). In my book, the Focus and Mazda3 were at the top of the list where driving dynamics are concerned. Since I'm 6'3" tall, head and leg room are big considerations in a small car - - and the Focus fit me better than any other in the class. Add to that the incentives on the Focus and the fact that I live in a state (MI) that's rather dependent on Ford's business success, and the choice is made.

Best Features

Handling, steering, fuel economy, interior room, hatchback availability (I know there aren't many other Americans who share my view, but I really like hatchbacks for both utility and styling), stereo quality.

Worst Features

Make the 2.3 liter engine more widely available in the Focus lineup.
