The 2016 Ford Focus adds the option of a 6-speed automatic transmission to the 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine. Ford's Sync 3 is a vast improvement over the previous system, with better voice control and a more intuitive interface.
The 2015 Ford Focus is available with a 1.0-liter 3-cylinder engine that earns up to 42 mpg. All models get styling tweaks that include a new nose and tail to make it look more like the larger Ford Fusion sedan, a new interior designed to be quieter and more driver-friendly, and a new SE Sport Package.
About Ford Focus
In the competitive field of compact cars, Ford's 2016 Focus sedan and hatchback remain remarkably competitive, offering a wide assortment of trims, powertrains and price ranges. With fresh styling, a tech-rich interior and a reasonable price tag, the Focus has all it needs to challenge cars like the Dodge Dart, Mazda3, Hyundai Elantra and Honda Civic. From the fuel-efficient 3-cylinder EcoBoost engine in the SE, to the tire-scorching power of the all-wheel-drive RS, the Focus is able to stare down just about every competitor. Then again, the Focus has no answer to the sporty Honda Civic and Kia Forte coupes, nor the affordable all-wheel-drive Subaru Impreza wagon.
