2018 Ford Focus
Well I just bought it with only 18 miles on it . Drives really good . I have no complaints so far . I really like the Focus and hope it lasts me awhile. Will do an update later on it once I drive it some more
Amazing car - I couldn’t be more pleased
Got the 6 speed. It’s got plenty of pep, great sound system, and comfortable. Quite happy with this purchase.
Love it, love it, love it
Not my first Focus. After spending months shopping I decided on the 2018 SEL with all the bells and whistles that go with it. I drove a Chevy Suburban 4X4 for about 15 years and the transition from getting up into a vehicle to getting down into a vehicle took some getting used to. The acceleration is acceptable. Small relatively light car for the horsepower. Quiet, smooth driving. I love the handling. Almost sport's car like. The only thing that can be improved on, in my opinion, is the 6 speed transmission. It seems that sometimes it can't decide which gear to be in. But the Select Shift takes care of that. Have not yet gone on a long trip so I have no comment on that as of yet. Planning on driving from Michigan to Florida soon so I'll update my review then.

The front-drive Focus is a stalwart of Ford's product portfolio and it's built to hold down the company's position in what may be the most value-conscious segment of the market: compact sedans and hatchbacks.

We expect 2018 to be the last year of this generation Focus and a replacement to appear very soon. As such, changes are minimal for the 2018 Focus, consisting largely of different paint availability and minor option reshuffling.

Leaving the performance-oriented ST and even higher-performance RS models aside for now, the regular, gasoline-powered Focus is offered in four trim levels as either a hatchback or four-door sedan. There's a hatchback all-electric Focus, too.

The base S is offered only as a sedan and only with Ford's straightforward 160-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The SE, SEL and Titanium trim models all come as either a sedan or hatchback with the 2.0-liter engine. But the SE sedan is also offered with Ford's 1.0-liter, turbocharged, three-cylinder EcoBoost powerplant that is rated at 123 hp. The 2.0-liter is backed by either a five-speed manual or six-speed automated manual transmission, while the EcoBoost 1.0-liter comes with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic. The electric Focus uses a 143-hp electric motor.

The Focus has been part of the North American Ford line since 2000 and this third-generation model went on sale back in 2011. Newer competitors have advantages over this aging model, and we expect the next generation to arrive this year or next.

Considering all the choices available in the compact class, making sense of it all can be daunting. That's why Edmunds is here to help with researching your purchase and getting a great deal from a great dealer.
