KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Scott Oldham -- Contributing Editor


Offering a wide assortment of trims (S, SE, SEL or Titanium), powertrains and price ranges, the 2017 Ford Focus sedan and hatchback compete in the crowded compact segment against such highly rated rivals as the Mazda3, Hyundai Elantra and Honda Civic. Fresh styling, along with Ford’s Sync 3 infotainment system and a sporty driving character are hallmarks to the popularity of the Focus, as is turbocharged horsepower. It starts with the extremely fuel-efficient 123-horsepower 3-cylinder EcoBoost engine in the SE. Then there’s the tire-scorching 252-horsepower Focus ST and the incredible 350-horsepower all-wheel-drive (AWD) Focus RS. If green is more your thing there’s also an all-electric Focus that challenges the Nissan Leaf and Volkswagen e-Golf and offers about 80 miles of range.

You'll Like This Car If...

…you like a little sizzle with your steak, the 2017 Ford Focus offers great styling, impressive handling and some of Ford’s best high-tech features. The 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine is an efficiency leader rated at 40 mpg on the highway, and the high-performance ST and RS offer awesome power and performance.

You May Not Like This Car If...

As appealing as it is, Ford’s 2017 Focus can’t match the low price and content of the Kia Forte, Nissan Sentra or Chevy Cruze. The only all-wheel-drive model is the high-performance Focus RS, which starts around $36,000, and if you’re seeking a coupe or wagon, you’ll have to look elsewhere.

What's New for 2017

Changes to the Ford Focus for 2017 are minimal. There’s a new SEL package that includes 17-inch aluminum wheels with black sections, fog lights, black headlight bezels and a power moonroof. There’s also a new color called White Gold.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The 252-horsepower Focus ST is Ford’s VW GTI-killer, and it’s quite an impressive piece of work: fast, fun and comfortable. Although when equipped with the optional Recaro seats, anyone with more than a 30-inch waist may find himself wedged in place. The new high-performance 350-horsepower all-wheel-drive Focus RS is nothing short of the new benchmark in the hot small-car market, which also includes the Subaru WRX. It’s a rocket ship that still delivers the practicality of a 5-passenger hatchback. Most will like the ride delivered by the SE trim, which can be nicely loaded up and still remain well below $25,000. The Titanium brings even more bells and whistles, but its larger tires and sport suspension create a rather firm ride. The standard 160-horsepower 2.0-liter 4-cylinder in the S Sedan and SE sedan or hatchback is strong. Stopping power is impressive across the line, even the base model.

Favorite Features

SYNC 3
Ford consistently improves its Sync infotainment system and the 2017 Focus is equipped with the latest and greatest version. Not only is it easier to operate, it has a large 6.5-inch touch screen. It’s much better than the version it replaced, which was marred by too-small alphanumerics and latent response.

ECOBOOST ENGINES
The Focus offers three different smooth and powerful turbocharged engines: a 123-horsepower 1.0-liter 3-cylinder designed for maximum fuel economy, a 252-horsepower 2.0-liter 4-cylinder designed for maximum fun, and a 350-horsepower 2.3-liter monster for hard-core enthusiasts. But as is usual with turbocharged engines, lead-footed driving can run up fuel consumption.
