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.

  1. Prediction: Fords will fly off the shelves once the company stops dragging it's feet and starts rolling out the ecoboost engines in their various iterations. The Ecoboost will do for Ford what the v6 did for Nissan about 10 years ago. It's all about what's under the hood and the combination of fuel efficiency with class leading horsepower will finally put bring Ford back to it's former glory.

    Bad stuff?

  2. Alright where are the Jetta's? you can get a number of different configurations for under $20K. They are a better car and a better buy than most on this list. Watch out for the depreciation of the Suzuki.
