The 2018 Ford Focus is a mainstream compact sedan and hatchback that slots between the compact Ford Fiesta and mid-size Ford Fusion within the brand’s sedan lineup. With many trim levels available, the Focus can be had in everything from basic to extra sporty varieties. With Ford’s announcement in April 2018 that it plans to phase out production of many of its cars, including the Focus sedan, now may be a great time to get a good deal on one. Prices start from an MSRP of $17,950.
Pros: Electric & Performance Variants Available, Composed Ride & Handling
Cons: Outdated Styling, So-So Fuel Mileage
Looks Best In: Outrageous Green exterior/Charcoal Black interior
Safety Score: The 2018 Ford Focus received an “Acceptable” rating for the driver small front overlap crash test performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and was outperformed by some competitors.
Summary: As we previously covered, the Focus doesn’t quite match up to the class-leading Honda Civic, however it’s still a well-rounded and nice driving compact. Be on the lookout for great deals as Ford moves away from car production to crossovers.
