For 2008, the Ford Focus is available in a new coupe body style; with a more distinctive, quieter interior than before and more available convenience features, such as the SYNC communications and entertainment interface, the Focus offers a very compelling package for the money, even if it isn’t as much fun to drive as the 2008 Scion tC.
The Honda Civic coupe feels sportier than the Focus and the tC, but its engine isn’t as torquey for ordinary driving, and its interior feels a bit more cramped.
Like the tC, it’s also quite loud inside on coarse surfaces.
The interior of the G5 feels subpar in appearance and quality, while the Tiburon sacrifices a lot of interior space for a curvaceous exterior shape that is no longer in vogue.
