2012 Ford Focus SE 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Traded in an Audi Q5 for better gas mileage and lower payment.
Expected to feel like I was 'downgrading', but the Focus was quite surprising.
Interior is comfortable and well laid out.
Quiet inside with solid ride.
Sound system is not quite up to Bang & Olufsen system in Audi, but not bad at all.
I actually like the My Ford Touch interface better than Audi's MMI.
Lots of nice touches in this car that even Audi does not offer (e.g., LED interior lighting and a sunglasses holder that actually holds an adult pair of sunglasses).
Test drove Elantra and Focus was much, much better.
Car is brand new so averaging only about 28mpg.
I hope this number improves as the car is broken in.

Best Features

My Ford Touch, 18" wheels

Worst Features

Poor turning radius, transmission can be a bit jerky when accelerating slowly, no digital speed readout, 18" rims come with summer tires (all-seasons would make more sense, no one is gonna take this car to a track). Very limited rear leg room.
