The Ford Focus is an extroverted and high-end compact that works for a number of different types of drivers, depending on model and powertrain. It is a four-door sedan or a five-door hatchback. Each Focus handles well and gets a good mileage of fuel. There is even a Focus Electric model. The 2017 Ford Focus is its seventh year. It has been slightly redefined for 2015 (and should be redesigned for 2018).
The most common engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder cylinder with direct injection and variable variable timing, making 160 horsepower and 146 pounds of torque. These numbers are not big, but there is a lot of pech. The transmission is either a 5 – speed manual or 6 clutch automatic double clutch which we do not like. There is also a three-cylinder turbocharger with a small displacement of 1.0 liters, which is slower but more fuel efficient. It comes with a 6-speed automatic or manual transmission.
If that’s the performance you want, the Focus ST, with its 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharger, makes 252 horsepower and speeds up to 60 miles per hour in just 6.3 seconds, on the way to a maximum speed of 155 mph. It uses only a 6-speed manual transmission. And if that’s not enough, for a price jump of over $ 11,000, the Focus RS with its 2.3-liter turbo makes 350 horsepower. To manage this power in the curves, it uses an all-wheel drive with torque with driving modes, including Track and Drift.
The EPA calculates the Focus with the six-speed 6-liter 6-speed manual at 30/40 mpg City / Highway, or 34 mpg Combined.Focus 2.0 liter automatic is rated 26/38/31, roughly the same as The 1.0-Liter with automatic.Focus ST is rated 22/30/25 mpg and uses regular gasoline.Focus RS is rated 19/25/22. Focus Electric, with limited availability, reaches 105 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent). The NHTSA gives Focus Five stars in its collision tests. The IIHS gives it the best good score for most of its tests, but only acceptable in the difficult overlap test.
