Top 10 Road Trip Cars: Student Years

2012 Ford Focus
You're a student who longs for the open road. What to drive? Try the new Ford Focus. It looks cool, sports an upscale interior, rides and handles incredibly well and costs about the same as some of the more boring compact cars. For road trip duty we're inclined to suggest the five-door variant with extra cargo room, and not to be overlooked is highway fuel economy up to 38 miles per gallon (40 mpg for the sedan with SFE Package). Remember students, the less you spend on your car, the more you can afford to drive cool places. Class dismissed.
