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.
For 2014, the only change of any significance for the Focus is a new Sport Appearance Package for the SE trim level, consisting of sport cloth seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and an available rear spoiler.
Fully redone for 2012, the
Ford Focus is largely unchanged for the 2013 model year except for the availability of a 5-speed manual transmission on the top-line Titanium trim level, the departure of the semi-premium SEL version in favor of a more comprehensively-appointed SE and the arrival of the hot, new Focus ST (reviewed separately).
A comprehensive makeover raises an already popular player in its segment to a position of prominence and possible dominance thanks to the addition of a new hatchback body style, greatly-expanded/upgraded feature set and a range-topping Titanium trim level. And while the 2012 Ford Focus Electric marks the Blue Oval’s first crack at a mainstream
electric car, they succeeded in producing a relatively affordable gas-free vehicle that drives, feels and looks like a conventional car.
