New additions here include 17 inch alloy wheels which surely makes the car looks a bit more sportier than the previous version and some additions seemed to be a bit outdated though. The Focus key and separate unlocking system really is not anything new as it was somewhere included in the Ford Taurus some years back. Inside the car, the upholstery and its dash boards seemed a bit too plasticky and hence do not give you that much of a confidence when driving. While most Focus’ do come with quite powerful engines, this one comes with the 2.0 liter 4 cylinder 140 horsepowers which although could be quite economical and efficient, it seemed a bit slow on the acceleration. Essentially, the ergonomics of this car is not as superior and well done as many other models not only in its competition but within Ford’s own stable as well.
Standard accessories here include the 17 inch wheels, heated exterior mirrors, auxiliary-in, message center with trip computer, electrochromatic mirrors, SYNC, fog lamps, rear spoiler and such. you can also add in additions like ABS, ESC while a 6 CD changer set in with an Audiophile sound System too would be nice. Otherwise you might want to add in the Power Moonroof with sunshade and leather upholstery with heated front seats which would be fun.
As mentioned, this car really is not anything to shout about and it is hard to compare it with the earlier (or later) Focus as one of the minuses here would be its ergonomics. Many reviewers find this car to be a bit on the short side when it comes to comfort. Sort of like telling Ford to decide if they are going for comfort, elegance, luxury or neither. Ultimately, it has everything that makes it a great car although it is a bit far from being inspiring.
