Love my new Focus hatchback!

2012 Ford Focus SEL 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6AM)


I've had my new Focus hatchback for 2 weeks and I love it. It is so much fun to drive and I love the voice and Sync features. The only negative is no surprise, it's not for long-legged people. A tall person might be fine in the front and there's plenty of head room, but definitely no in the back seat. I'm only 5'4 so it's great for me. I do a lot of city driving, so my mpg has been about 28 so far, but that's a lot better than my old car. Looking forward to taking a trip in it next week.

Best Features

Comfort, ease of driving. Style of the hatchback. This is my third Focus. I've had two sedans because I didn't like the cut-off look of the hatchbacks, but the 2012 is completely different, in my opinion. I really like the styling of it.

Worst Features

Very minor -- I'm not wild about the new jagged look of the word Focus. Other than that, I can't think of improvements right now. Seems like Ford has thought of everything to improve on the old Focus line.
