The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
Even without considering the top-performance ST, the 2014 Ford Focus is one of the best-driving small cars on the market--with the impression of being an accessible premium car, not a spruced-up econobox. The Hyundai Elantra already had the bases covered--we'll see if a new engine and new tuning draws it even closer to best in class.
