2013 Ford Focus OVERVIEW

All Focuses get a 2.0-liter 160-horsepower four-cylinder with either a five-speed manual or a six-speed dual clutch automated transmission. The base S trim is only available as a sedan, but comes well-equipped with 15-inch wheels, electronic stability control, power front windows, mirrors and locks with keyless entry. Also standard is a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, Ford's MyKey system, four-speaker audio system with AUX input and a full complement of airbags.

SE trim is also offered as a hatch and boasts cruise control, 16-inch wheels, trip computer, six-speaker audio with Ford's SYNC voice activation for phones and iPods with a USB connector and four power windows. Options include MyFord Touch, navigation and an appearance package with alloy wheels and a sports suspension. Top-rung Titanium cars get MyFord Touch standard, along with HD radio, keyless start, dual-zone automatic climate control, a power driver's seat and 17-inch alloy wheels. Options include active park assist, heated leather seats and a handling package with a sportier chassis setup.

The Volkswagen Jetta is more spacious and offers a clean diesel engine option, but has a cheap feeling interior on lower trims and can get very expensive. The Chevrolet Cruze offers a refined 1.4-liter turbo engine and a more comfortable ride, but no hatchback and isn't as fun to drive. The Honda Civic is fuel efficient and offers a sporty coupe, but has a cheap interior and unrefined driving experience. The Mazda 3 offers outstanding fuel economy and a spirited drive, but lacks the Focus' available technology features.

While the competition at this end of the market may be fierce, the Focus packs a big punch with its choice of body styles and long list of options. Every Focus, though, has fun-to-drive characteristics with a fuel-efficient drivetrain. That is what a lot of shoppers are looking for as they try to avoid paying a lot for gas, but don't want to give up attributes of bigger vehicles. For those customers, the Focus should be high on the shopping list.
