2009 Focus SES Coupe: First 1,000 miles

2009 Ford Focus SES 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


The automotive press really don't get the appeal of the Focus SES Coupe. They short change it on style and rate its performance lackluster. The truth is, this car is the complete package. Combine its blend of unique styling, confident handling, quiet/comfortable ride, stellar SYNC system with incredible fuel economy and give-away price incentives and you've discovered what makes the Focus special. Okay. It's not a performance car, but it doesn't feel like an economy car either. It's not spirited, but certainly agile. Import shoppers looking to balance fun, comfort and value really should take an SES 5-speed out for a test drive before shelling out cash for a Civic/Mazda 3/Corolla

Best Features

Where else can you find dynamic stability control, leather heated seats and 35 MPG for $16 grand. SYNC with Standard Sirius radio really differentiates the Focus at this price point. Nice manual gear box. Well laid out controls. 17" wheels/tires both look good and do significantly improve handling.

Worst Features

4-wheel ALB & Electronic Stability Control should be standard. The Coupe is a 1- or 2-person car. If you have kids or plan to use the back seat, get the sedan. Leather seating surfaces do need some visual texture/contrast; no folding mirrors; you'll notice strong crosswinds at highway speeds
