The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
7.6
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 2014 Toyota Corolla keeps its frugal, responsible core but adds a lot more verve.
