Ford Focus (2012)

Price: $16,995 (S sedan)
Overall Rating: 8.5
Key Takeaway: With the 2012 Focus, Ford shows that small cars don't have to feel so banal, with charismatic compacts that are more satisfying to drive, more luxurious, and better-equipped.
Strongest Attributes: Features, Styling

Ford paid a lot of design attention to its new 2012 Ford Focus sedan and hatchback models, and it shows; both new models are beautiful, not only with near-perfect proportioning but the kind of details, inside and out, that we're used to seeing on more expensive cars. The new Focus's driving personality is charming for a basic, affordable car; while performance from its new direct-injected (and very economical) engine isn't anything special, the new Focus even in its most affordable trims handles as well as our longtime small-car handling favorite, the Mazda3, while feeling more refined and keeping occupants more comfortable. Features are a strong point, too; on higher, more expensive trims, Ford's MyFord Touch touch-screen interface is available, as well as an automatic parking system.
